Welcome to our ToolBox Tips series designed especially for the man on the tools. During this miniseries we will be explaining what the digits reference to on the spray tips, Tip wear, spray gun tip colours, and finally how to assemble the tip with a tip seal and a tip guard. This will be broken up into 4 videos, so you are not overwhelmed with too much information.
In part 4, every spray tip needs a tip seal and a tip guard. The tip seal needs to be inserted into the base of the tip guard. When it comes to Tip Guards, it is recommended that the yellow and green tips are used with the orange version that Meon supplies. But when using the grey spray tips, you must use the grey version of the tip guard, which Meon also supply. It is designed to lock the tip in place and prevents the pressure from twisting the tip, falling out, or firing out due to higher pressure.
Take the spray tip between your thumb and first finger with the arrow pointing upwards. The tip seal can then be inserted into the base of the tip guard. Once the tip seal is correctly inserted, the spray tip can be removed.
The spray tip can be inserted into the side of the tip guard with little effort. The tip guard assembly is then screwed hand tight. These spray tips are known as switch tips as they can be rotated 180°. When we rotate the spray tip the residue will now be blown out. Returning the tip 180° to its normal position will mean we can continue spraying our line. To remove the tip seal, use the arrow to push the tip seal out of the tip guard. Ensure you have your hand cupped under the tip guard to catch the tip seal.
