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.

I use this lid to store dog food in a five gallon bucket. Once you get the ring on, you have a bucket that is air tight and water tight. The dog food stays fresh to the last kibble. I can get into this bucket as many times as I like. It opens and screws shut with one hand. The only one who can get in there is me. No dog and no uninvited dinner guest. There is a gasket in the ring and on the lid. It is very durable and should last a long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kyquilter LOVE These Lids
We have been using Gamma Seal Lids for about 10 years and liked the price at Home Depot best! :) I wasn't 100% sure if these black lids were food grade so I called the Gamma Seal folks and they assured me that ALL of their lids, including these, are food grade and BPA free.
These lids are made in the USA (Sweetwater, TN) so that's another plus for us.
Buying the 6 pack through Home Depot, with free home delivery, is the best price we've found anywhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Magicman Great air-tight lid
Great air-tight lid for 5-gal buckets. Works very well for storing dog food, grains, or survival stores.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charles Air-tight, food grade
I bought these Gamma lids to install on food-grade buckets purchased at another home supply store (since HD doesn't sell them). These make a very affordable solution for storing grains for homebrewing or pet food. Please just carry the food-grade buckets to put these on.

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.
