I only have the large Fastcap bottles.  Yes the rubber cap has broken off on a number of them.  They have never clogged, even with me forgetting to cap them sometimes.  I have not been doing any big glue up so can't compare to the convenience over the original bottles.  I would likely just pour it out the top when I do a large glue up upcoming.

Me - I just pry the top off with a screw driver and dig out the glue.  I always forget to push the top back down - always.

Always use the right tool for the job.

We need to clean house.

HA!  I did that for a long time until I chipped a tooth (it must have been cracked to begin with) so now I don't!  Oh, glue bottle, not grenade.....

When I think back to my college days of opening a six-pack of Molsons with just my teeth...
Hey, we didn't have an opener and we were driving, what else were we spose to do? (Oh, and it wasn't the first six-pack, but you probably already figgered that out...)

Had to get a pair of pliers and pull the silly thing off.

Saw this somewhere, years back, but never got around to doing it.  Today was the day.

Why did I wait so long?  Who knows.


Place the bottle with the stopper on the edge of the bench. Tap lightly with a hammer. The hardened glue will break off. 
When you are done gluing for the day, wipe excess glue off around the stopper/ cap.
