These stainless steel spouts are intended for use with the Smoky Lake Sap Collection Bags (Sap Saks) and Bag Holders. Perfect for hobbyists and small producers who want to try syrup-making without the large investment in tubing and buckets.

Features:

  • Flared Lip to Prevent Back-Drip
  • Max Depth Guideline
  • Strong Construction
  • Perfectly compatible with the Smoky Lake Bag Holders

Specs:

  • Size = 5/16″
  • Material = 100% Food Grade Stainless Steel

Directions:

  1. Sterilize the Spouts in boiling water.
  2. Measure 2″ from the tip of a 5/16″ drill bit and mark it with masking tape.
  3. Avoiding older tap holes, drill a straight hole into the tree trunk up to the masking tape line. Do NOT blow into the hole.
  4. Insert the tapered end of the tap into the hole and gently seat it with a hammer. The Max. Depth Guideline should still be visible. The tree trunk could crack if inserted too deeply.
  5. At the end of your maple season, remove each spout with the claw of a hammer. Do NOT plug the hole in the tree.
  6. Rinse the spouts and store them for reuse next season.
