Square Bucket 5 Gallon w/Lid
These five gallon buckets are square, and include a unique reclosable lid. The lid ships unattached, and can be installed with a rubber mallet (or regular hammer and a wooden 2x4 to prevent lid damage.) After it's initially installed, the lid is completely air tight and water tight, having a rubber gasket. Later, when you're ready to break the seal (by tearing away the lower skirt of the front lid section), the lid hinges open. The lid has molded-in latches to hold it open, and also has a clip-over latch that holds it securely in the closed position. After the initial seal is broken, the lid (when in the closed position) is close-fitting, but is no longer air or water tight. The closeness of the fit is such that if held upside down with some water inside, the water will come out in a fast trickle. (If you need fully gasketed resealability, see our Gamma Seal lids instead.) We have tested the lid's hinge to over 1000 open/close cycles. Made of food-safe virgin polypropylene and polyethylene.

Needed a square bucket with some kind of secure/easy open lid for a chicken waterer with the horizontal nipples. Haven't put on the nipples yet. The plastic seems a bit thin; thinner than the round 5 gal buckets I have. I will have to see if it works. But the price is good for the item, as it was almost impossible to find a square food safe bucket with a hinged lid.Was this review helpful to you?
Bucket is of good quality. I was looking for buckets with the closing lids. Most of the ones I found you had to remove the lid. This was just what I was looking for to store dog food in.Was this review helpful to you?
