HOW TO REMOVE THE SPOUT FROM HYDRO FLASK'S FLEX STRAW LID
If you’ve had one of the original Hydro Flask straw lids, then you probably know how to take off the spout for cleaning. A common question people have about the new Flex Straw lid is whether you can do the same thing.
The good news is that you can take off the spout, but it’s a little more difficult and you have to do it a little differently.
Here's how to remove the spout from your Hydro Flask Flex Straw lid for cleaning.
A Video Review
If you'd rather watch a video on this topic, check out our YouTube video.
It covers most of the same information, just in a different format if videos are more your style.
Step 1: Open the spout to 45 degrees
First, open the spout to about a 45-degree angle.
This is important to help prevent damaging your lid and to make it easier to pop the spout off. You'll see why later.
Step 2: Push the spout to the side and up
Then grip the cap like this with the spout between your thumb and index finger. (This is called the thenar web space for those who wanted to know!)
Push the spout to the side while also lifting upward some, and it should pop out.
If you’re having trouble, try keeping the lid on your bottle for leverage. We find this makes it a lot easier.
Why is the 45-degree angle important?
Once the spout is out, you can see how the grooves align with the pegs in the cap base, which is why it helps to pop it off at a 45-degree angle.
If you try to pop the spout off at a different angle or push it beyond open like with the original straw lid, then you run the risk of stripping the pegs or grooves so they don't line up as well. Your lid may still work OK, but it probably won't open and close as crisply / nicely.
