The GluBot, HighBot, and BabeBot from FastCap are designed by cabinetmakers and woodworkers. They are easy to fill, they don't drip, and they dispense glue in both horizontal and vertical position it will be the best glue bottle you will ever own.

The GluBot™ is made out of polyethylene and is resistant to all solvents, except ones that are corrosive to that polymer or extremely high temps (80C+).
Does the 2P-10 XTip fit on the GluBot?
No, it only works on the BabeBot and the HighBot. The GluBot has a larger retaining ring.
Does it work with the thick Titebond molding and trim glue?
Yes, it should!
Is there a trick to keep the GluBot from clogging up the nozzle?
Go slow the first few times you use the GluBot. If you apply careful pressure when squeezing the bottle you should be able to get just the right amount of glue to dispense, and when you release the pressure it should suck the glue back into the bottle. If you squeeze too hard you will dispense too much glue which can coat the tip and cause clogs. Use a paper towel when you are done using the GluBot to wipe off any excess glue on the tip, and then replace the red cap firmly to prevent air from reaching the glue. If you only use theGluBot occasionally only put a small amount of glue in the bottle when you go to use it, and then wash out the glue bot with hot water when you are done. If you let the GluBot sit for an extended period of time the glue in the bottle will harden and can cause clogs. If you use the GluBot a lot you don’t have to worry about this. A pin can be used to break up any clogs in the tip if you have not used the bottle in a while.
Will the GluBot hold lacquer and acetone thinner? From being a painter all these years, I know that it will melt a lot of plastics?

The best glue bottle ever
The BabeBot was long overdue for the crafting industry. Love the fact that the glue comes from the bottom of the container where the most fluid contents reside. Cleaning the bottle on occasion is a snap with a modified old toothbrush. Love the tethered cap for covering the tip. And the wide mouth for filling is a breeze. FastCap makes the bestest stuff.
After my glubot was letting me down, Fastcap didn't. They did averything to help me solve the issue. So thumbs up for Fastcap!
Response: So sorry for your troubles! So glad we could help! FastCap's products are guaranteed for life!
Excellent Idea with poor engineering or quality control. It looks like the mold was not aligned properly when the bottle was made so the area around the small or discharge cap is crooked. If you get it just right you can turn the cap 1/2 turn before it feels like it will strip, I think if there was another round of thread it would be ok, but should be a little heavier (after all this is a shop tool). I tried it with water first and it leaked out around both caps, after tightening them as much as I dared they did not leak.

It works way better than the glue bottles!!
I brought mine at menards because i was tired of buying little bottles. Buying by the gallon is cheaper. So i grabbed this off the self. When i first used it it wasn't working until I figured i had to cut the tip to my desired hole size. I used it that same day and it worked wonderful. I like that i can pour glue on any direction. I read reviews and mine has the black gasket lol.... I just want to buy more tips so i can have different ones with different hole sizes. Or replacements in case i dropped it and break the tip.

I love the concept and when it functions properly, it is a 5 Rating. BUT, FastCap need to upgrade the two washers that are provided with the bottle. They appear to be a low cost seal, because they do not last more than about two lid on/off cycles. This product would be an unequivocal 5 Rating from me if the washers worked or at least had a third party substitute that would hold up. PLEASE have your product people look into this.
Response: We definitely will. Make sure you have the newer black washer. If you don't, let us know and we will replace it!
The Gluebot is a fantastic tool. I purchased the 16oz and Baby bots just over a year ago and they have worked great. They really help keep my work space neater. No Glue drips all over the place. I would have given 5 stars except the 16oz just had a hole open up in one of the seams and won't hold pressure to squeeze the glue out. But I like it so much I am buying another one.

Still not perfect...
I've used the glubot for well over a year, and thought it works as advertised, mine developed a problem that makes it almost useless. The flexible washer under the fill cap no longer functions properly. It won't completely seal and as a result, glue comes out of the spout as well as the top. And that causes another problem. The top can be very difficult to remove when it's time to add more glue. I don't know if I got a bad seal or if it needs to be redesigned (thicker maybe), but I stopped using my globot.
Response: Sorry to hear that Stephen. Please Call 888-443-3748 for a replacement.
What a remarkable tool. Easy to use and no more glue drip, plugged tips, excess glue from too large of a tip. Cannot say enough about Fast Cap products for making the job easier, safer, less stressful and time saving.
Response: We love hearing this, Wally! Thanks for taking the time to share!
