Nozzle Caps Stop Oily Mess
To solve the problem, Gutschmidt started using what he calls "Easy-Close Oil Caps," which screw onto the outlet, sealing it from dripping.
The cap has a little lever (handle) to open and close without getting oil on your fingers, he says.
"They just hinge back and forth on a pivot pin," Gutschmidt explains. "They're real simple, and they really work. When you want to dispense oil, you simply slide the little hinged cover to the side, and open the ball valve."
Gutschmidt likes the caps so much, he also sells them.
The aluminum cap has an O-ring to prevent leakage, and is sized to fit garden hose-size nozzles.
Gutschmidt sells them for $20 each, plus S&H.
