    They used to have gallon paint cans with big screw on lids. No longer sold. I asked why sales guy said they dried out on the shelf. You have to religiously clean the threads or it will dry and stick so it can not be opened. They do sell pint paint samples in little screw top plastic jars. Lowes 5 gallon pails of paint the lid/spout pulls out and does not really reseal. If left out side in the rain the pail will have a full five gallons in it regardless of how much it started with.

    Which brand of paint at HD has the plastic paint container with screw on top? The pictures on HD's website still show everything as having the pound on lids. Menards has Dutch Boy (I think that is the brand) paint with screw on lids and an integrated pour spout.
