Questions & Answers

this item isn't carried in any of the local home depots..how can i order this item from the warehouse..the website keeps directing me to store pickup.

Asked by: romeo
Home Depot will ship from the main offices in Atlanta, GA. to you or to store. I would give them a call. Unless you have a large order ship to store is just more reasonable. Hope this helps.

HDX 5 gal. Paint Bucket Opener is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaser

Rated 5 out of 5 by from life-changing For years it seemed like all I did was struggle with caps on 5-gallon buckets. The first opening would be easy, but after the paint got on the threads and dried it would take channel-locks to twist off, and sometimes frustrated hammering with the channel-locks! This a simple yet effective design that opens caps with ease. I just tried it on several of my Home Depot brand paints that have been sitting for years and it broke the seal with ease. Be aware though, it does not appear to be designed for anything except the plastic "standard" caps with 12 points, I tried it on an older bucket with a slightly smaller cap and it did not work, and I didn't bother with a metal bucket with a metal cap. However if you buy your paint from Home Depot (and you should) it should work on all or most of the brands they sell. Definitely a tool that is going with the rest of my paint gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for The intended Use Note....this product is for unscrewing the caps on 5 gallon paint containers provided with a screw-cap pour spout (not for removing the cover from the container, itself). A molded plastic tool of adequate strength and size, which appears to be well made, this will avoid stressing one's fingers to try to grip and unscrew the cap on the paint container pour spout. The only caution would be to make sure that paint is not allowed to accumulate either on the tool or the cap that it will have to remove/install...if the grooves in the tool or the "nubs" on the cap get caked with dried paint, it may be difficult to get the tool over the cap. A time saver if you are doing a lot of painting (and, if you are using 5 gallon paint containers, one must assume you are doing a lot of painting!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A handy tool for those recessed caps This is one of those tools I never thought I would need until I decided to paint my house. I planned everything out from drop cloths and scaffolding to brushes and long reach rollers. Or I thought I did until I went to open the 5 gallon buckets of paint. Being a handy guy I was able to open one with out the tool but the cap didn't look so good when I was finished. I decided to get the correct tool and save myself the trouble and make reclosing the buckets that much easier. Now I am confident the cap is on tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Five Gallon Paint Bucket Opener The HDX five gallon paint bucket opener is an excellent tool. Since this little ranch is small I always order some shade of white in a five gallon container. The same color of paint usually gives the illusion that the space is larger than it really is; which is exactly what I am trying to accomplish. However, five gallon containers sometimes fight back and can be difficult to open. This tool makes it much easier to open them. So, I love the tool and I do recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as Adverstised There's really not too much to say about this product. It works as advertised and helps to open those pesky plastic tops on 5 gallon paint containers. I had a few paint container tops that were stuck on with dried paint, but this opener helped to crack open the seal without too much trouble. It definitely beats trying to leverage the caps open by hand or potentially busting them with a screwdriver. It's kind of a cheap plastic design but it does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bucket opener People should be made aware that such a tool exists. This tool is an absolute 'must-have' when opening paint buckets. A very useful tool to open bucket lids. Saves the trouble of finding another tool that may not be so efficient. This is a must have in your tool box. Easy to use even on a old bucket of paint. l would highly recommend it. I've always had a hard time opening paint buckets but with this tool its so easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very handy I really like this inexpensive tool for opening a paint bucket. No more torn up hands or looking for a set of channel locks. I paint rough a home and or shed a month. So my sprayer see's a lot of action. Keeping a lid on prevents a lot of paint from being wasted due to drying out. Plus I only need that small open anyway and not removing the lid is great. Mostly I like how easily a bucket can be opened now.
