A Guide to Trigger Sprayers

Plastic trigger sprayers were first used as spray pumps to allow for various commercial and domestic liquid products to be distributed to households through retail outlets. Trigger sprayers are usually made from a variety of plastics and can be used for water-based and chemical-based liquids. A trigger sprayer is attached to a compatible spray bottle that allows the contents to be dispersed when the consumer squeezes the pump handle on the trigger.

The most common use for trigger sprayers is with household cleaning products such as disinfectants, floor, and surface cleaners. This has especially been the case in the past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There was a huge increase in demand in 2020 for trigger sprayers for disinfectants and cleaning products.


One of the major benefits of using trigger sprayers is the ability to control the amount of the content that is dispensed. The nozzle can be adjusted to create a fine spray or jet stream for dispensing liquids. Another benefit is trigger sprayers come in a variety of nozzles colors and sizes. This makes it easier for the consumer to easily identify different products.

What Nozzle To Use?

The nozzle is a big feature when it comes to the consumer experience. This gives the consumer control over how the product will dispense. There are several options with the nozzle. You can give the consumer the option of a nozzle that allows your product to spray, stream, mist or have it in an off position, or choose a nozzle that simply twists open.


Trigger sprayers are made from a variety of materials. If choosing a more sustainable trigger sprayer is important to you, then consider the use of PCR for a portion of the material for several components such as the shroud, closure and trigger.

What Neck Finish To Use?

You will need to choose a neck finish that is compatible with your bottle and your product. A typical cleaning product often uses a bottle with a 28-400 or 28-410 finish. If you have a harsher chemical such as a lawn pesticide, you may look to a ratchet finish to keep the cap and sprayer from loosening from the bottle.

There is also the option of a bayonet/snap-on trigger sprayer. These can only be used with very specific bottles and are very difficult to remove, thus making them a good option for products that should be specifically kept out of the hands of children.
