Thank you, Thank you, Thank You. Can Gun 1 rocks.
When this arrived, I was very excited to see if there is much of a difference between hand-spray painted and gun-spray painted work. The last picture shows the un-evenness that can result from hand spray painting (a little of this is also inexperience spray painting). It took more force that I was able to get the Rust-Oleum Vintage Copper into the gun, so I had to ask for help. After a little experimentation, I found that the easiest way to get it into the gun is to place the can of paint, nozzle facing away from you on the ground (lay the can length-wise, not upright), put you foot against it to prevent is from rolling off, and then take the gun, only holding the black portion and press it into the nozzle head. With a little click, it should go it without too much force. It might take a few tries to get used to it, but it comes easily after.
I recently had a friend over for some DIYing, he hates spray painting as it hurts his hand, but after trying my spray paint gun, he really ended up enjoying the process. I've switched spray paints over ten times now and the gun contraption has not loosened or broken. Overall, this is great for getting an even coat on your spray paint projects, and requires much less effort and elbow grease. Even if you are starting with a small project, this investment is well worth it for you fingers! I'm very happy with this paint gun and recommend it highly. Happy DIYing!
Having said that, it is highly likely that I am at fault for it breaking. The directions state that the tool is to both be attached and removed by sliding it forward and back perpendicular to the vertical axis of the can. I suspect that I may have tilted it while trying to pull it off. A minor design change to make it easier to install and remove from the can would probably eliminate the likelihood of breaking it.
I have used other attachments of this sort and must state that this one is by far the easiest to use while spraying. No paint gets on your fingers or hands (unless you do something stupid) and there is little strain on your hand while using it, as you can use all 4 fingers to depress the lever and the mechanical advantage is very good.
I would recommend this to anyone who needs to use a spray can, especially if it is necessary to use multiple cans to cover whatever you are spraying. This eliminates the pain in your fingertip that results from using a spray can in the traditional manner of pressing with a single fingertip.
I highly recommend it, even without knowing its long-term durability. Yes, I did order a replacement unit, which arrived within a single day!
