Both caps fit the end of the spout, one can be used for the vent on older Rubbermaid cans, or you can use it for a second spout cap in case you lose the first.
The new base cap does not fit or leaks, what do I do?
Try using the new spout and your original base cap as this will work in most applications. There were many molds over the years and the tolerances varied greatly and this is why we include additional base caps.
How flexible are the spouts?
The spouts are made of HDPE plastic and not rubber, they are flexible, however bending them in the cold, or severe bends may cause cracking. Use care when pouring to avoid spills.
