These lids SUCK!

I have to admit that I got angry because he was not manly enough to remove this lid. It would not screw off you could not pry it off and it had to be ripped off with screw drivers and other tools which caused it to be demolished. Do not buy this. I just wasted $10 by demolishing the lid.

gamma lids

Susan. I am glad you got the lid on but by turning the bucket upside down upon the lid wouldn't whatever is in the bucket come out??? Or did you just put a lid on an empty bucket? Missing something here.

Farmer

In response to Chets comment on the 5 gallon buckets available at Lowe's. I spoke to the Corp. Buyer handling the buckets you mentioned and was told they were made in China and were NOT food grade. I also got a similar response from Home Depot there buckets are US made but again in speaking to the buyer as well as the manufacturer neither would confirm food grade. I hope this will help.

Gamma Lids

The Gamma bucket lids are very easy to seal if you know the trick to it. As stated in another post just seperate the two lids pieces and use a rubber mallet to attach the bottom rim. Then simply screw the center rim in.

Lids

These types of lids are difficult to seal but you know it is sealed! That is the important thing. I start with the lid tilted and work my way around with a large rubber mallet I have even used a large hammer and a board. Whack the board while in contact with the lid - it goes right on.

How the He** do you put the lid on

I just pounded on the lid for half and hour trying to get it to close. I am so aggravated. I can't seem to read prior reviews to find out if anyone had this problem and how it was solved. Stay away from this product

Does the job!

While these buckets take some effort to seal they are well worth that effort! I've had grains stored in these buckets for years (with the oxygen absorbers) and the grain is as fresh as the day I sealed them!

Cut through the holes in the lid

It's not immediately obvious if you've never used these types of buckets before. But there are holes around the bottom edge of the lid. If you get a cutter like a pair of hardy wire cutters (or if need be a hacksaw) and cut through the plastic where these holes are it becomes significantly easier to open and close the lid. If you can't figure out how to do it don't bother. I don't want you ruining the lid and blaming me. When I cut mine some of the holes had a little bit of plastic covering it but you could still see where they were. Even with this it takes a bit of effort to open and close but it's still much easier. No one else mentioned this so I thought I'd bring it up. I've been using these types of buckets since I was a kid. I used them for joint compound for putting up sheet rock. If you don't have a good seal the joint compound dries up. They still seal just fine but they're easier to use.

housewife

This is for Toni who had trouble sealing the lids. I had no idea how to do it either so I e-mailed the company and Chris Odantje (bless his/her heart) e-mailed me the instructions. That was two or three years ago and the regular lids that come with the buckets now ARE impossible to seal. What I did was order one of the gamma lids. (You have a choice of lids when you order the bucket.) The gamma lid comes in two parts so you just unscrew the top from the ring. You put the ring on the top edge of the bucket hold it down (hold it tight!) with one hand and use your rubber mallet to hammer it down. You have to work around just the edge of the ring and you have to go around it two or three times to make sure it's secure but it'll work. When you have the outer ring beaten down you can take the top and screw it back into the ring. Not only is it easier to put on than the more recent one-opiece lids it's easier to open when you want to take something out of the bucket or put something into it.
