Gamma Seal Lid, 12 Inch

This remarkably practical two-part gadget transforms a standard plastic bucket into a rugged, gasketed, resealable storage container that's both air-tight and water-tight. Just snap the outer ring down onto your bucket. The threaded lid turns easily with molded-in grip bars. These lids are heavy duty for years and years of service. The ring has a polymer gasket where it sits against the lid of your bucket, and the threaded lid has another polymer gasket, giving the container an air-tight, water-tight seal that excludes not only such freeloaders as mice and insects, but moisture too.

The Gamma Seal lid transforms an ordinary bucket into the ideal storage vault for an endless list of materials from grain and other foods to laundry products, pet food, tools, documents, silk ties, lawn and garden products, bait, seeds, oil, disaster supplies... and on and on. They also make lightweight, super-strong, watertight totes for camping gear. And did we mention that they're stackable? Our customers come back for more of these. (Make your life easier by ordering a few more the first time!)

  • “I buy these by the dozen literally! They work great for food storage, storing charcoal, pine cones for fire starters, laundry detergent, pasta, and all emergency type products to keep them pest free and airtight! They're awesome and easy to open and close. I highly recommend!”

All Gamma Lid plastics are food safe, including "heavy-metal-free" pigment in the colored lids, and all Gamma products are BPA-free. Gamma Seal lids do not include the bucket. Please note that color tint of plastic buckets can vary, so Gamma Lid colors may not perfectly match with the color of any given plastic buckets.

These 12" Gamma Seal lids fit 3-1/2 gallon or 5 gallon or 6 gallon buckets with standard top diameter of 12". If you want to use Gamma Seal Lids on buckets you already have, be sure your bucket tops have exactly these measurements. (The buckets offered by Pleasant Hill Grain all have the proper top diameters to accept their respective size of Gamma Seal Lid.)

To install we recommend a large rubber mallet, or lay a 2x4 across the lid and strike with any heavy hammer. If a lid ring doesn't want to start on a bucket easily, submerging the ring or bucket rim (or both) in hot water will ease the connection.

Available in white, blue, black, green, orange, red, and yellow.

    When we received our first order of hard white berries, in addition to the Gamma Seal Lid, it was very difficult to remove the well-sealed lid on the container. Replacing that with the Gamma Seal Lid was very easy. Now, with the easy-open twist off seal lid my wife has no trouble at all getting to the grain... to grind in the EXCELLENT KoMo Classic grinder we also bought from Pleasant Hill. What a fantastic company!

  • Perfect fit and perfect seal
    By on - Verified Buyer
    These lids keep my fresh grains fresh and free of bugs, dust, and other bad elements for well over a year. My grains smell as fresh and vibrant as the day I received them, and my baked goods are always flavorful and tasty. I grind grains for everything I bake regularly and, therefore, depend on bulk storage. The different colored lids help me identify the content of each bucket without having to label anything. Fantastic pricing, impeccable service and delivery.

  • Gamma Seal Lid brings forth more bread
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The amazing Gamma Seal Lid is a tremendous product I'd recommend to everyone. We purchased a 6 gallon container of hard wheat berries. The lid that came on the container was difficult to remove since it is intended to seal and protect the product. With the Gamma Seal Lid my wife can easily open the still well-sealed container. Even with severe arthritis she can open the container anytime she needs to grind more wheat for more delicious bread.

    Seals well, doesn't cost a lot and doesn't look like it will wear out anytime soon.

  • Gamma Lids... works great
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Great for use with the 5 and 3.5 gallon buckets. I use for food stuffs and other outdoor gear that needs to be protected, dry and easy to get to. Get a few of these and some different size buckets and you will be amazed at what you will be using these for.

  • Gamma Seal Lids
    By on - Verified Buyer
    These lids are amazing. They spin off and on easily, while keeping the contents of the pail as it should be. My garbanzo beans stay well protected in the pail, and allow me to spin "in and out" of the pail with ease when needed. (-: Love these lids.

  • Love These!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I have used this lid on a number of the buckets I order from Pleasant Hill Grain. They seal up nicely, the thread pitch is just about right to make it easy to fit on and to seal up properly. If using liquid, a very small amount will remain in the bucket (few ounces) since the inner surface of the lid protrudes a bit to the inside. Not a big deal, just something to know. The lid itself has a nice seal.

    I mix and match lids/buckets for different visual identification. Even use one to take car camping - you can sit on it like a seat if you are waiting for the showers, and store all your towels and change of clothes in the bucket since it'll keep the water out

    MAKE SURE you use a rubber mallet (or similar) when installing the lid and that the ring which is installed on the bucket is seated all the way.

  • Love These Lids
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I had these lids on the buckets the same day they arrived. (My technique? I place the lid on the floor, upside down, I place the upside down bucket on the lid and sit or stand on it. It goes on quickly, easily and evenly.) I ordered twelve in a variety of colors. Delivery was fast. These lids are the best thing since sliced bread. I store grain, flour and everything else you can imagine in buckets thanks to these fabulous lids. Whoever invented these is my hero!

  • Different Colored Gamma Seal Lids
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I buy these by the dozen literally! They work great for food storage, storing charcoal, pine cones, and all emergency type products to keep them pest free and airtight! I have purchased every color but the orange ones. Red is for wheat, green is for homemade laundry detergent, and portable emergency toilets, yellow is for pasta, blue is for sugar (in the house) and for charcoal out in the garage. Black is for pinecones for fuel starters. I use green in the garage for my chunks of fresh cut pine wood for fuel storage. They are awesome and easy to open and close. I highly recommend them.

  • Must Have. Really. Best lids made for plastic buckets.
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The Gamma Seal lids are an absolute, no question MUST have for your bulk supplies. The ring snaps firmly down on your bucket and has an o-ring seal. The center lid screws onto the outer ring and has a second 0-ring to seal it to the ring. Perfectly airtight, and still easy to open by hand without a bucket wrench. Order your empty buckets without lids and order the Gamma Seal lids for them. If you are buying pre-filled buckets from Pleasant Hill Grain, order a few Gamma Seals for your currently-in-use bucket to make it easily resealable, then transfer the next bucket contents into the one with the Gamma Seal. The Gamma Seals are removable from the bucket, but it will be difficult, so it is easier to leave them on and just transfer the contents. Simply put: You will not be disappointed in these lids and will order more.
