  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 spout into the hole and tap it gently with a hammer until a slightly different “thunk” sound is heard. The Max. Depth Guideline should always 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.

    My partner got these last year, worked great! Stainless steel is truly worth the little extra, and last a lifetime.

    I’ve used numerous different taps through the years. These are very solid, well-manufactured. The flare at the tip of the spout is well-configured to prevent sap from dripping retrograde. The etched line to mark the max depth of tree insertion worked well when I let my son, niece and nephews help tap trees today. I still like the Sap Meister taps, but these are even more solid, in my opinion.
