Use your wire snips to snip off the drip tip down low, then widen the hole with a small nail till its large enough to get your syringe into the bottle. store the bottle upright.
or if you have a drill, just drill a hole in it
This will certainly solve your immediate problems, but ultimately…[quote=“fidalgo_vapes, post:5, topic:88889”]
SCALE will solve all your problems
A set of scales will revolutionize your mixing… sooo much easier, less fuss, less mess, much more consistency & accuracy.
Those FA bottles are the worst. I had problems with them too when I used syringes, so i just transferred the flavorings into other bottles that were easier to work with. Next time buy re-bottled versions if you have the choice… it’s cheaper anyway.
The lids are pressed on to keep you from refilling them and they are proprietary so other companies cant use their unique design. If you drill them be careful to not get plastic flakes into the bottle.
If you ever do mix with a scale you will never go back to syringes.
my 1st scale cost about the same as 1 bottle of flavor (and shipping), still works fine, still the same batteries that came with it.
I use my thumb and index/fore finger. I set the dripper plastic bottle on a flat surface and peel it’s translucent dripper portion off the neck of the flavor bottle. Pretty sure this works for all plastic flavor bottles. You could use a small plier to do this operation if you lack sufficient finger strength.
After a mixing session, the tip is easily reinserted and orange/blue etc. capped for the next round of mixing.
The Orange caps are child proof and have to be squeezed and unscrewed open.
Had to take pics because my vid wouldnt dwn load. but as you can see in the first pic there are some serious tabs you have to over come. To be honest I may have used plyers at first. But damnit i got it off.
Before I got my scale I did the same thing to remove those orange lids, and they kept a seal just fine. And I stored my flavors in a little bag at that point so they were never upright. I didn’t have any issues with leaking.
BUT… You won’t be disappointed if you get a scale.
