    After an exhaustive online research I have decided to just stick to my plastics for Africa bottles.

    Okay, so I received the Blotto RTA (my first RTA) and I now agree that chubby gorillas are annoying. Takes forever to fill up the tank, have to squeeze so hard too. I could even see the nozzle cap trying to slowly edge enough to pop off when I was squeezing the bottle to fill up the tank.

    Think I know why they're called chubby gorilla bottles...You bloody need a gorilla grip to squeeze those bottles.

    I have spoken to a gentleman at https://www.dalgen.co.za Zain Essop 083 858 8666 and sent him pictures of various tanks to indicate the size of the Tank orifices. He seems to think he can modify their spouts to similar to the images below. And he will be prepared to sell bottles and lids / spouts in smaller quantities than Tully Plastics. They can either be bought with a lid or a spout and I asked him if they would sell with a pair of sealing washers for the spout, one with a hole in for filling and general use at home and a full washer with no hole for transportation of bottles if you go on holiday etc. or transportation. I like these bottles and one benefit for me is the spout does not obscure your view while refilling. The material of my bottles does harden a bit with age and I am not sure if his product will do the same.

    Useful little tool I found today. I mix and steep in 100ml wide mouth gorilla bottles and then put in 2 x 50ml witches cap bottles when I want to use the juice.

    I just use a botter mes and pop it open by the small slit. Or if no slit i use a lekker slag mes and it works just fine.. #whatsnext

    Me and @fbb1964 will open ours much easier with a purpose made gadget, instead of a hash job with botter mes..#whatsnext?

    Its not a harsh job i simply insert the tip of the botter mes into the slit and twist or if there is no slit the blade goes into the area between the drip cap and bottle. Both work with a simple clock or anti clock pop. #WhatCanWeInventToRobPeople

    Each to their own i guess.. What ever works

    Hash not harsh, those gadgets have been out a while now. Very well made tools that work really well no messing around, any e-liquid bottle, whatever size it's off in a second and costs next to nothing! I can light a fire with two pieces of wood but so much easier with a lighter lol!
