    Anyone know where to get replacement spray can nozzles? Particularly the blue type that has the little pin in it.

    I seen replacement caps at home depot in the paint section. I dont know if they have the specific one you need , but i seen the basic little ones there in a bag in the aisle.

    ^^^ What he said... also, I usually soak them in paint thinner to remedy said problem.

    I was gonna say the same suggestion. Then put the nozzle on a can of brake clean and spray through it to clear all the debris.

    Necropost of the day goes to Johnny. I was in Weymouth earlier today.

    Acetone works very well for cleaning out most substances from the nozzles.

    Always after use , turn the can upside down and spray to clear the nozzle of paint to prevent this .
