Winter Sporting Activities Made Easier

MIAMI, OKLA. – From Oregon to New York, record snowfalls are bringing the fun to winter sports enthusiasts. For those people taking out their snow mobiles, fishing in ice shacks or even transforming their dirt bikes into snow bikes, life just got easier with the new ScepterTM SmartControlTM fuel containers.

SmartControl one-, two- and five-gallon gas, kerosene and diesel containers can be safely stored in garages and sheds throughout winter months and are ready to help people tackle their winter sports passions. Whether using a kerosene heater to keep warm in the garage while preparing for a ride, adding gas to a snow thrower to clear the driveway, or mid-day on the trail when stopping to refuel, it is now safer and easier with SmartControl fuel containers.

The innovative spout design of SmartControl makes it effortless to fuel equipment and heaters during cold winter weather. The spout provides a clean, fast, and hassle-free pour. The user-controlled flow valve allows the user to direct the amount of fuel being dispensed, and because the container stores with the spout on, hands and gloves always stay clean.

“With just a single motion someone can simply press the lever up to unlock the child safety feature and then, with the palm of the hand, squeeze the large button,” says Daniel Marshall, vice president of marketing and business development with ScepterTM. “That first squeeze is done when upright to vent the container. Then, place the nozzle over the tank and simply squeeze again to pour just the right amount of fuel.

“The SmartControl container makes it fast and easy to fuel up for winter weather activities. The great thing is that you can safely store these containers in garages, sheds, workshops and fishing huts without concern of spills or children getting into the fuel. Whether someone is heating a warming area at an ice skating rink or filling up a snow mobile, these containers are a ‘must have’ for winter sports enthusiasts.”

Recipient of the “Best in Class” Award at the 2018 National Hardware Show, SmartControl containers are constructed in the U.S.A. of durable and safe high-density polyethylene. SmartControl containers can be found throughout the U.S. in The Home Depot®, Walmart®, Lowe’s®, AutoZone®, Pep Boys, Target and Northern® Tool + Equipment stores. For more information on the newest safety features and how to use, see the SmartControl video.

With operations throughout North America, Scepter has manufactured containers for the consumer, marine and military markets for almost 70 years. SmartControl and other Scepter products are available at major retailers and home improvement centers throughout the country. Visit for more information.
