Nice lids, but hard to install

Once you get them installed, these lids are great - they open easily, and from what I can tell, they make an air-tight seal. I will buy more. However, the instructions say that "a rubber mallet may be necessary" to snap the rim of the lid onto your bucket. I found that a rubber mallet was completely ineffective; what worked was having a 173-lb man jump up and down on it!

{Response from Emergency Essentials - We're glad you found a way that worked for you Kitty. We've also found that sudden downward motions can do the job by hand as well - assuming that your bucket is empty, and you are only attaching the bucket adaptor (outer ring) portion.}

Not leak-proof

These might be great for food storage that you are opening and closing on a regular basis, but they are NOT leak-proof, airtight, or watertight. I just found out the hard way.

gamma lids

I started feeding the birds this winter, and bought a couple of lids for the buckets of bird seed. It is so easy to open and reopen the buckets with these lids. I recommend them for any buckets that you need to get into often or in a hurry.

Good for Frequent Access

I like these lids for things I get into often. Popcorn is one of mine. Although I use #10 cans for my milk, they would be perfect for Super Pails of dry milk. I would also like to thank EE for the video on this page showing how to seal Mylar bags. THAT was REALLY helpful.

Gamma Lids

These lids are the best. I use them especially for dog food. No chance the dogs will get into it and no trouble for me to get into it.

not just for food storage

We use these lids to pack a bucket with a set of dry clothes/towels etc for everyone in the family when canoeing or trailer camping.

This is great. I put it on a smaller (3 gallon?) bucket and poured a large bag of dog food into it. Now I don't have to fuss with the sack or smell the food. With a poodle puppy, I can save by buying in bulk now and not kill my fingers with normal lids that are a bear to take off. I will be ordering more for my bulk food storage, which was my original intention for this lid, but this use just sort of happened.

Rotation Made Easy

The gamma lids are the secret to my usable food storage. I keep flour, sugar, rice, oats, etc in 6 gal buckets sealed by gamma lids, then refill my kitchen canisters out of the buckets. So easy. And the different colors help me keep track of what's what.
