    I have several of these, some with pop-up flexible plastic spouts, some with solid bent plastic spouts that have caps on them, and some new ones like the photo you have here with the lever and flex pipe. I get them at Goodwill for cheap, complete or just the caps. Maybe $2 for the entire 1 or 2 gallon can. I have a series of three 1 gallon, three 2 gallon and two 5 gallon cans. I got them all used and cheap. New I have only seen the complete cans for sale.

    You can get them on Ebay, but they are usually more with shipping than a whole new can. One bent spout there is $15???... *cough* Gimme a break. $4 is a good price if you can find them online.

    Never had a cap for that type of spout. I guess it might be a good idea to keep crap out of there. Amazon lists a 2-pack of flex tubes but they are out of stock. I do not think that they come with the caps though.

    I just carved a few caps one day out of some wood laying around. Just sticks in the hole like a cork kinda.

    Never thought of capping mine. Good idea. Maybe the redneck fix--piece of rag?

    The only wine I'll ever put my lips on will be out of a box and it will be straight from that box (no cup). Otherwise please hand in your man card!

    Fine, then get a bottle of wild turkey or maker's mark.

    You can buy rubber stoppers for dirt cheap from just about anywhere. 4 bones for just the cap is robbery.

    I have a couple of these, the cap is nice, but unnecessary. It doesn't seal the container, just keeps debris out of the spout.
