Lets water in.
Submerged 2 buckets with this lid to occupy volume with minimal weight. Water gets inside both, despite sealing the rim with a hammer and twist top with vices.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Washington Great product
I used this lid on a 3.5 gallon bucket. It works great. I used it to store my beans.
The only thing that was difficult was putting the lid on I couldn't get it to snap. lol I had to wait for my husband to get off work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HelpfulSexton Work great for storing ice-melt
These lids make using 5-gallon contaiers much easier. Wish they didn't cost 3x the price of a bucket, though. We use the "animal-friendly" ice-melters that contain either magnesium chloride or calcium chloride, and store it in 5 gallon "homer" buckets. If the buckets are not sealed between uses, the ice-melter absorbs the ambient moisture and hardens-up like concrete. It's a pain using the regular bucket lids, as they are hard to remove, if properly sealed. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five, is that I had to return a few if the lids that were damaged in shipping.

I have a bunch of screw top lids for 5 gallon buckets. When I moved to a different town that has 2 home depots, I went to both and neither of them have even heard of these. Have you ever tried prying off a normal 5 gallon bucket lid? It is next to impossible. Why are these not everywhere?

Makes any five gallon bucket reusable! Very reasonably priced. Easy to attach. Works like a charm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrKnobs This lid takes HD buckets to a new level!
This is perfect for storing feed or dog food or bird seed or anything else you don't want critters or insects getting into. It includes a snap on adapter that is super tough (nothing's gonna pull it off after you put it on!) and a strong lid that screws into the adapter to form an airtight seal. It takes the standard orange or white HD bucket to yet another level of usefulness by allowing you to use it for dependable storage. This could only be better if HD made clear buckets so you could see what's stored inside at a glance and how much of it is left. I'm going to suggest that to them.
