I stored some paints laying down instead of standing up and most of the paint leaked out. I mentioned it and some of the guys said check if the cap is on tight. I made sure
they were tight , they still leaked. Obviously I will stand them up finally. I am curious why they leaked. Thanks for your help Stay Safe !!!!!

"Pen" type touch-up paint? The valve which controls flow is not of quality construction.

They design that stuff to be used quickly. Touch-up paint has always been something dealers do not want to stock.

Put your TU pens in a Zip-Lock bag and open it back up in a day or two. It always smells of the paint's vehicle / solvent.

And of course, never store them in glove compartments.
