Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by earthkin I can't get the thing on...
I know they work nicely once they're actually fit onto the bucket, but once I received them, I couldn't get the lid on the bucket, no matter how hard I tried! It would have been nice to know beforehand what the instructions inside say, that you might need a mallet to get this lid on. I don't own a mallet, nor do any of my neighbors! Is it really that necessary to make these lids SO hard to put on? I can't really say anything else about it until I find someone with a mallet I can borrow....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HuntersDad Get these in different colors as well
I have several of these in several different colors and have loved using them from the day I first tried one.
Sometimes when I have stored liquid in them, in particularly paint, cleaning out all the old contents is a bit tricky. Since the ring fits tightly it is difficult to get all of the material removed from the space at the top of the bucket. In some cases this has led to undesireable contamination of the new contents. I just have to take a few extra minutes to make sure the area around the top of the bucket is fully cleaned prior to reuse.
The watertight lid is extra easy to remove and install. The ring is very tight when installed onto the bucket and can be difficult to install, but I found that if I turned the bucket upside down and pushed the bucket into the ring it was much easier than using a mallot.

These lids along with the associated 5 gallon pails are perfect for bulk dry food storage.

I really like these. I store food for an emergency. I buy a food grade 5 gallon bucket and wash it and the lid. After this is installed, you can unscrew the lid to add or remove what's in it and put the top back on to protect it from weevils, water or anything else.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AuntBee I enjoy the Gamma 5-Gallon Black Plastic Lid
I have some bulk items that I store in the big buckets and this Gamma 5-Gallon Black Plastic Lid allows easy access to the contents of the bucket. My thumb has been giving me issues lately and this lid sure make it easy for me to get into the flour and sugar buckets to refill my canisters. I had been having to wait until my husband got home to open them for me. Works out great. This is a two part lid system and it requires hitting the one ring onto the bucket with a rubber mallet, which these days I could not even manage that, rescued by my husband again! I gave the product a 4 star because of price, otherwise it would have been a 6 star product.

Not sure how HD is able to sell these less than anybody else, but they do. At quantity, the shipping is free (order lids and buckets together). Gamma lids are excellent.
