Any of you old-timers in the same fix I'm in? I was trying to wrench the
glass-slick cap off a spray can of Minwax urethane finish last night, and
these old hands have lost so much grip strength since I was young that I
couldn't get the dang thing off no matter how I tried. I was eventually
reduced to jamming a long screwdriver right through the cap and levering the
wreckage off of the can. When I was done I looked down at the mess I'd made
of it and just shook my head.
Your basic old Krylon cap is a bit easier, but not much. Often I end up
slipping a flat-bladed screwdriver tip under one edge and levering it off,
trying not to break it in the process.
Anybody have any good ideas for me?
I have the same trouble since Krylon was bought by Sherwin Williams. The old
cap with the push tabs was great.
Us old farts have troubles when we loose or grip strength. WW
