Hi Guys, here you have my latest idea to save some time, sore fingers and stains on them! I sort of replicated some plastic spray handles I saw on internet, but they were not available in Spain. So here you have the DIY version of that. Made of 3/4 plywood with a pivoting arm made from a 10mm threaded rod, with a 4mm screw and nut acting as the pivot point. Beginning to end took around 25-30 minutes, with the most dificult part being cutting the arm to lenght. I kind of solve it fine tweaking it with a locking nut that let me move the contact point with the cap by a couple of mm back and forth. Works like a charm and locking the can with the elastic rubbers is not a problem at all. Hope you will like it! Please comment with your improvement ideas and questions, happy to answer them all!
Here a video on how good (or bad :-)) it works. Hope my english is good enough for you natives :-)
Best and thanks!
