MIAMI, OKLA. – Just in time for the onset of winter chores and sports, ScepterTM has introduced a new, easy-to-use fuel can system. Crafted with a unique push spout, the rugged SmartControl™ containers are designed for fast fills without spills.
“The innovative spout design of the SmartControl system makes it easier than ever to fuel equipment like portable generators, lawn mowers and leaf blowers,” says Daniel Marshall, vice president of marketing and business development with Scepter. “Whether filling the snow blower or the snow mobile, the SmartControl system makes fueling easier, faster and cleaner.
“This isn’t anything like your grandfather’s old clunky, leaky metal gas can. The SmartControl fuel container is ideal for homeowner use, because it’s simple to use and store. This container is so reliable that landscapers, builders and other professionals can depend on the container day after day for workplace situations requiring continual refueling without spilling a drop.”
Available in one-, two- and five-gallon sizes, the SmartControl line includes containers for gasoline, diesel and kerosene. Recipient of the “Best in Class” Award at the 2018 National Hardware Show, SmartControl containers are constructed of durable and safe high-density polyethylene.
“One of the most exciting features of the SmartControl line is the ease of use,” says Marshall. “The spout provides a clean, fast, and hassle-free pour to fill everything from pressure washers to leaf blowers. With a single motion, the user simply presses the lever up to unlock the child safety feature with the palm of the hand, and then squeezes the large button. This first squeeze is done when upright to vent the container. Then, place the nozzle over the tank and simply squeeze again to pour just the right amount of fuel.”
The SmartControl container helps save gas for where it’s needed by eliminating messy spills. The user-controlled flow makes it easier to direct the amount of fuel being dispensed, and because the container stores with the spout on, hands always stay clean.
“SmartControl is an extension of our best-in-class products known and trusted around the world,” says Marshall. “From cutting the lawn to navigating emergency weather events, the containers we manufacture provide consumers with peace of mind and ease of use when handling, transporting and storing their fuel. Our company is known for providing rugged and easy-to-use containers. SmartControl now joins our family of trusted products.”
The rugged SmartControl containers are Made in America and designed to substantially exceed ASTM and CPSC minimum standards. Each product includes a child safety lock and flame mitigation device for added protection.
“In any situation where a person uses or stores fuel, extra precautions must be taken,” says Marshall. “Portable fuel containers should never be used on or near a flame, coals, embers, or any other source of ignition. Additionally, children should not use or play with the containers.
“SmartControl containers are designed in compliance with safety standards. However, people should always use a good dose of common sense when storing or using any fuel container, whether it’s holding gasoline, diesel or kerosene.”
