I love Elmer's wood glue but, it seems to me that there is a problem with the dispenser tip.
On my last trip to the USA, I bought four bottles of this glue. When I was using my first bottle during one of my projects, the dispenser did not slide over the tip and the cap was broken. I put a coin inside the cap to protect the glue from drying and contaminants.
A similar situation happened with the second bottle. This time, I pulled the dispenser off and the orange ring on the tip brake down.
In both cases, I needed to remove the cap to pour the glue in the joint making this not even and spillage prone.
I googled some information about this and it looks like this is a common problem with this brand.
Having two additional bottles in stock, It seems to me that I need to take care of the bottle's cap when the time to use them arrives. Another option is to use Titebond again but both brands are not available here. Local glues are expensive and look like the same product with different names.
Assuming these bottles flew to Venezuela in the cargo hold of an airplane, they could have been exposed to some very cold temperatures, and the plastic could have been damaged. Maybe the glue too ...

That is a good point, Dick.
That was not the case since the glue, along with other supplies arrived in my country by sea. The joints that I have glued are strong meaning that the product is good.
I will start to use the third glue bottle and just in case, I told to my wife to keep the mustard bottle that she is using.

Some good responses here Alexis.I'm interested to find if lids from condiment squeeze bottles fit your Elmer's glue bottles? This would be the simplest method & no wastage.Good luck with whichever way you choose. James

I don't usually use Elmer's, but I have a bottle now. I can't pull it open by hand even when I clean off the dried glue from previous jobs. So I simply use a plier. Works fine, but shouldn't to do it this way. In the past I have used a catsup bottle and it works fine. I like the ones that are made to stand on the spout side - ready to use immediatley.
