    For difficult to reach in places!

    Comments about Krylon Spray Paint w/ 360 degree Dial:

    I kind of liked the concept of 360 degree dial and out of excitement I bought a can of Krylon Spray Paint w/ 360 degree Dial. The new tip sprays in a fan shaped pattern instead of the round and conical patterns which I am used to. Honestly, I did not like it to an extent that I would buy this spray for my regular "Do it Yourself" projects. It definitely works the best to paint the areas which are difficult to get through otherwise, I find it more comfortable and quick to twist myself, rather than the dial while painting a normal table or a chair for that matter. So overall, I did not find it better in any way as compared to the other Krylon spray paints out in the market. Basically, they all (including 360 degree dial spray) are for simple fix ups which can brighten my house and make it look new and different every time! I thank krylon for making the products which has made our lives so colorful!

    Good spraypaint in many colors

    Comments about Krylon Spray Paint w/ 360 degree Dial:

    Krylon Spray Paint with 360 Degree Dial is a great spray paint to use if you are trying to get the paint into tight places. I actually used this spray paint to spray circles on my yard to create a game of twister. They came in many colors, which was important when trying to get different shades for the twister board. It was easy to change the direction of the nozzle so I could spray the grass with the paint.

    Krylon has a good name, so that really factured into my decision to purchase this spray paint.

    Quality
    The paint seemed to be a good quality to me, but I did not spray anything like furniture that would have allowed me to see if there were any drips or streaks.

    Coverage
    I only sprayed this paint on the grass, but it seemed to cover the area of the large circles that I was creating.

    Ease of Appliation
    This was very easy for me to apply. I don't use spray paint very often, and I did not have any problems figuring out how to use the spray paint.

    Krylon Spray Paint w/360 Dial is THE WORST!

    By 

    from Sumrall, MS

    Comments about Krylon Spray Paint w/ 360 degree Dial:

    I wish there were a new word for awful! I am so disappointed that I have ruined a perfectly good piece of my family's history. I tried to spray paint my great-grandmother's buffet with this product and there are more drips than I can count. The dial is the problem. It doesn't allow the paint to spray into a wide enough area and so it creates drips. I seriously thought it was my technique at first so I kept going and the results were disastrous! I'm going to have to resand the entire thing. I found an old can of Rustoleum in the garage and tried it and it was perfect. I really thought I hadn't primed the buffet correctly or that I had forgotten how to use spray paint but it was definitely the dial! I might try to take the dial off and stick the Rustoleum nozzle on the can. I'm so frustrated right now I could scream! Stay away from the 360 dial!!

    Paint is only as good as the ability to get it out of the can

    By 

    from Colorado Springs, CO

    Comments about Krylon Spray Paint w/ 360 degree Dial:

    I had a large project that needed spray paint.  I selected the Krylon Satin Nickel Brushed Metallic for the job.  Nice color, subtle with a little pop.  Not garish.  Satin finish was gorgeous. I purchased 5 cans

     

    The big new thing with Krylon paints though is this "amazing" new spray nozzle.  It has a small white piece on the front that you can rotate to change the direction of your spray and rather than a round dispersion pattern it has a wider flatter pattern.  When I first started using it, I really liked the nozzle. The first coat went down quickly, nice coverage, used less paint than I expected, nice clean finish and no runs.  I was in love.  Then it came time for the second coat....

    Shake the can, hold at proper distance, press down on nozzle and ......... nothing. Zip nadda NOTHING.  No air, no drizzling of paint from a clogged nozzle... just NOTHING.  OK, grab can #2.

    Shake, spray, second coat is gorgeous and lovely.  I am happy again.  I set piece #1 aside and grab piece #2.  Shake, spray and...........Are you serious?  Nothing?  So now I have two cans 2/3 of the way full and seemingly determined to stay that way.  OK, let's switch nozzles.  Nozzle a on can b, nozzle b on can a and.... NOTHING!.

    Project has to be done this evening so we shall bluster on. I mean, I notorious have bad luck.  If there are five people in a contest and 4 prizes, I'm the one that gets nothing.  Krylon makes a good product, I must have just stumbled upon two faulty ones.  I will not be buying lottery tickets tonight. Apparently I will not be finishing this project either because every time I release pressure on the nozzle I cannot get it to spray again.

    Annoyed and frustrated I decided to take one of these nozzles apart and see what the issue is.  Oh, I see,  it has a major design flaw.  The base of the nozzle is solid but unlike traditional nozzles you do not push the nozzle itself down. There is a little "flap" at the top (I assume because it requires less pressure to spray).  You hold and depress this flap which pushes in a small metal pin which is supposed to release the spray.  The problem is that once you release the pressure, the pin does does not come back up. It sticks in the neverland between releasing paint and returning to start position.  Even using small plyers to pull the pin back up to it's original starting position does nothing.

    This new nozzle is a one shot wonder.  I'm not amused.  I had to run out and purchase 3 more cans to finish the project and in the meantime I still have 4 partial cans which I cannot use or return as defective. (Also because of the new design, I can't even replace it with a traditional nozzle from another can)

    I used to be a great fan of Krylon, but until they get rid of this nozzle, I won't be using their product again
