Following a request from one of our customers, we thought that this article could be useful to you. As you know. our FARBMAX nozzles and nozzle holders are a financially attractive alternative to similar products from the Graco and Wagner ranges. Unless otherwise stated, an Airless spray nozzle is conventional in shape and reversible. If your gun and holder are compatible with FARBMAX nozzles, then it will be very easy to use them interchangeably. However, it is possible that the seal of your nozzle is inserted incorrectly and that it can “partially” block the slot, thus preventing the nozzle from entering the holder.

“Help Me Airless Discounter, the nozzle won’t fit the holder”

Please ensure the sprayer is switched off and the trigger is locked on your Airless gun before handling.

Please Note: The gun in our example was not connected to a hose or a paint sprayer, so we did not lock it. Make sure the trigger lock is switched on when handling the holder or adjusting the spray nozzle.

Steps to ensure the Airless nozzle is inserted correctly

  1. Unscrew the nozzle holder from your gun. If the seal is inside (see below), remove it.
