Dumb Q Dep't: removing sprayer from bottle

    Dumb Q Dep't: removing sprayer from bottle

    post #1 of 8
    Thread Starter 

    I went to pull out a sprayer on a used partial bottle I had purchased online (to add what was left of a decant I had of the same frag), but the sprayer did not seem like it wanted to twist or pull out. I did not force things and left it.

     

    Do the sprayers come out, or are they best left in place?

    Most of the time they don't. They're best left in their place IMO.

    As hednic was saying, most sprayer mechanisms are locked in place and don't come out. All you can do is to cut them with pliers and then pour in another bottle, which doesn't make much sense.

    Agree with above posters.  By design, most are meant to not come apart.  If you do get it apart, you will probably have more problems than you solve.

    Use a plier to de-crimp it.

    Thanks all. Sounds like its not worth the trouble. I was just trying to consolidate, so I can toss some of the small atomizers I've accumulated.  Plan B for the sample atomizers--use em up or give em away!
