    This should be a little less controversial than the last picture I posted. LOL

    I love these bucket covers for 5 gallon buckets used for salt storage. They are about $10 each and screw onto the bucket (once you put on the ring on top of the bucket) and they are water tight and open/close very easily.

    :laughing:.......Seriously though, how much does that bucket weigh??

    Those look nice! Never seen those before. I put the snap on lids on halfway because you can't get them off.

    Looks good Dean, I use chlorine buckets I get from where I work, they had screw on lids that have a "ratchet" on them so they stay tight.

    It is within the manufacturer's suggested GBWR (Gross Bucket Weight Rating). :D

    I have used the snap on lids too, and like you said, they are tough to get off. One of my commercial customers (a bank) actually provided salt for their walkways and they had they type of covers on their buckets. So I just googled them and found them on eBay for about $10 each.

    Those are neat. I have a plastic tool for removing the pry-off lids, but of course I couldn't find the dang thang recently when I needed to open a bucket. The lid had been on only halfway, but apparently something got put on top of it. Maybe my granddaughter sat on it.
    I eventually got it open with some "magic words." :realmad:
