Default CA Kicker bottles ..........

I buy Kicker in large bottle ... means I can refill the little Kicker spray bottles.

BUT am I alone when I have every small Kicker spray bottle - the thumb plunger to spray sticks down ... leaks ... fails often to spray ....

Usually I end having to unscrew the spray top and then use a BBQ skewer to dab Kicker onto joint. I did use a small paint brush as the plastic modellers do - but after 1 or 2 jobs - the brush would be solid and fall apart !!

What do others do ??

I have had a kicker bottle stick like yours, I guess that's why I have at least 2 on the table while building.
I have used other spray bottles if they deliver a fine mist. I have even pryed the top off spray cologne bottles and then recrimped them, worked pretty well. Wrap dark tape around clear bottles, I heard too much light or UV rays can kill the kicker.

I tried 2 Kicker bottles .... end up with both stuck !!

I took a 'refillable' perfume bottle ... did same.

Must be something in the kicker fluid doing it.

Amazon Amazon

Here in the States, I look for something like these in pharmacies or Wal-Mart. Look in the make-up section as these "misters" are usually available there quite cheap. I normally buy several and fill with kicker, water (for Gorilla glue) and cleaners.

Works for me, cheap and normally readily available - even on Amazon.
