How to Open Elmer's Probond Wood Glue

Elmer's Probond Wood Glue is a type of glue that is best used to attach pieces of wood together. Carpenters use it to attach joints in wood before they apply wood screws or nails. Elmer's makes a number of different types of glue, all of which have a specific type of cap. These caps prevent children from being able to access the glue and they keep the glue from drying out.
