    Bingo you gotta carry one of these in every irrigation kit going out into the field. And a cloth to wipe the purple primer off of your hand when you open it with a tool.

    If you cannot open a can of glue or primer without destroying the container or getting the product all over the place, you may be in the wrong trade.

    Isnt there a 1 800 number on the can?? LOL

    Channel lock with round "grabbing parts" will help.

    If you clean the rim of the can when your done for the day helps, If you dont use the stuff all the time buy the smallest can.

    I used to use channel locks
    Now I use a strap wrench. Much easier on the lid - more even compression.

    Ask your wife to open it for you.

    I always tap it up side down for a second or to and it opens right up.
