Default Well... that's a kick in the n**s

I bought some Gorilla epoxy, and upon preparing to use it tonight, I found that it is missing the cap to seal it. I only needed a very small amount, so the rest of it is a waste. Expensive waste.
I never suspected it would be missing the cap, or I would have checked it. It's supposed to be molded between the plungers. There's only four strings of plastic where the cap should be.

That's tough luck. Just wondering, though. Since epoxy is two part and doesn't start curing till both parts are mixed, why do you need to cap it? Just set it so the epoxy doesn't flow out of the tubes and it should be good for a long time.

A couple of toothpicks jammed in should do the job.

With my Gorilla Glue I use it with the lid off,finish using then plastic bag on top before the lid and turn the container upside down in a glass jar,just in case. Works for me.

Why not use the screw connectors used for electrical connections?
