Firm Grip 5-Gal. Paint Bucket Opener is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why isn't this in stores If you do any amount of painting and you buy five gallon containers, then you have to have this item. My only complaint is that it isn't sold in the store. I purchased mine online for three bucks and it was shipped to the store for free. Took a week or so, but it makes opening that round lid on the five gallon containers so much easier. No more pliers or tearing up your hands and fingers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handiest gadget to have Even with wiping the rim on the pour spout ti gets tough to open the pour spout after the first use and the spout is not high enough to get a grip with more than your finger tips. This bucket opener is the best option in the world. I've opened a lot of buckets with a large pair of "water pump" pliars and they can't compare to the ease of use of this tool. It should be a stock item for the stores and recommended by the paint department every time they sell a 5 gallon bucket of paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Painters Helper The best! hard to find, due to it not being in stock and Home Depot have NO knowledge of how to purchase it. I was even told by them that an employee had made it. I found it on line and bought three. Great handy tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for store location inventory This is a must have product for any painter. The store location carries the 5 gallon pour spout, which does no good without this product also being available. The stores need to start stocking this item.
