Q: I lost the template to put holes in my can, do you sell replacements?

Yes, this is a Hole Guide and the part # is BS-HG and is available through your local distributor.


Q: How is the flow rate of the adhesive controlled with the Better Spreader.

The recommended hole size is 1/4″ hole located 3/4″ on center. These can be increased to increase dispensing speed. Flow is also contolled with an air hole in the lid of the can. If slow speed is desired simply plug the hole.
