I have used those UpandComing but found they had to be meticulously cleaned in the groove that snaps over the can. No big deal with latex house paint, But time consuming and expensive with urethanes and if not perfectly clean you can get junk in your paint out of the groove.

I always think about the reducer and time it takes to get the dang thing clean again. I guess with paint being 400 dollars a gallon, I should throw it and my mixing cups away each time but that is not in my psychological make up.

I like the 1 1/2 tape trick. It matches my personality.
