Food-Safe 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.
“Above all, we’re very pleased with your courteous and honest service to us. I’m such a critic that when I praise something, it merits high praise indeed. I wouldn't bother to write this if I was not so favorably impressed.”
– Ed Casey, CA

By Joseph P. in VA on 3/18/2017 - Verified BuyerVery hard to find rectangular buckets with lids locally. I needed something to put cat and bird food in that would be easy to open. Good size and the quality seems just fine for the task.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Cristina in WA on 8/19/2019 - Verified BuyerOur family has purchased seven and will order more in the future. Previously I’d place bulk (25+lbs) in several gallon glass jars for storage. After finding these, I now order several things in 25lbs or more and one of these for each and I feel really great about it. The plastic is food grade. I feel prepared for the oncoming storm months with a few of these compactly sitting in the storage closet. All in all, for this reviewer who has a particular thing about food in plastic, these have been a game changer.Was this review helpful to you?

By Rosanne K. in IN on 12/26/2016 - Verified BuyerNeeded 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?
By R. R. in CO on 12/6/2016 - Verified BuyerBucket 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?
