How can I open a tin of Tikkurila
I can’t tell you how many people have told me “Those Tikkurila paint lids, ridiculous.” or “How can I open a tin of Tikkurila without shredding my fingers?”
This short video from Operation Control shows exactly how to open a tin with the tabs, and it takes nothing but a screwdriver and minimal effort and patience. No needle nose pliers, no bleeding fingers, no hammers, chisels, no shouts, screams nor calls to a more handy-minded neighbour to come and help open a tin of paint. (Real examples!)
This system also avoids the question, “The lid came off in transit. Will the courier company refund my money for delivering a cardboard box full of paint?”
And this is how to prise off the other type of lid.
Thanks to Holmans for digging out the videos. If you prefer an English version, Mr Nash makes sense too, and far more entertaining.
