Handling Winter Weather Woes with #SmartControl!

Handling Winter Weather Woes with #SmartControl!

Spring is almost here but it’s never to late to invest in new ScepterTM SmartControlTM fuel containers that can be filled and stand ready for handling winter weather woes.

SmartControl one-, two- and five-gallon gas, kerosene and diesel containers can be stored safely in garages throughout winter months. The containers can fuel up everything from snow mobiles to snow blowers.

 “This is the time of year to expect the unexpected,” says Daniel  Marshall, vice president of marketing and business development with ScepterTM. “The snap of an icy branch can take down power lines fast during winter weather. Having a generator fueled up and ready to go, plus back-up containers of fuel, makes life so much easier.”


In a 2018 online survey by Ask the Builder of 1,100 people across the U.S., having a gas can for filling a snow blower was the third most popular use of a fuel container — behind lawn mower and chain saw use. “The key is not to wait until it’s too late,” says Marshall. “The time to have fuel on hand is before the next big snowstorm.”

Easy-Use and Storage

The innovative spout design of SmartControl makes it easier than ever to fuel equipment year-round. The spout provides a clean, fast, and hassle-free pour and helps save gas for where it’s needed by eliminating messy spills. The user-controlled flow valve makes it easier to direct the amount of fuel being dispensed, and because the container stores with the spout on, hands always stay clean.

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.

Recipient of the “Best in Class” Award at the 2018 National Hardware Show, SmartControl containers are constructed in the U.S.A. of durable and safe high-density polyethylene. SmartControl containers can be found throughout the U.S. in The Home Depot®, Walmart®, Lowe’s®, AutoZone®, Pep Boys, Target and Northern® Tool + Equipment stores.

With operations throughout North America, Scepter has manufactured containers for the consumer, marine and military markets for almost 70 years. SmartControl and other Scepter products are available at major retailers and home improvement centers throughout the country. Visit www.scepter.com for more information.
