Awesome safety features
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I almost had a gas can blow up on me when I was filling it at the gas station so I can appreciate a good can when I see it. This container has amazing safety features so that type of thing does not happen to someone. Watching the videos on how to use the can beforehand was very helpful. These videos are provided on Sceptor's website. The can is very durable and good quality so I'm sure I'll be using this for years to come.

    Great for Lawn Mowers!
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have been wanting a good scepter. My Husband and I were both pleased with this 5 gallon one. The size was perfect. This was great for emergenices in our vehicles, emergencies with a power outage and needing our genartaor. As well as great when needing to fuel up our lawn mower. This tank itself was very durable, hard plastic that you can tell was made with stunning quality. Durable as can be! Sturdy! And the perfect nossle, protecting from spills with such a well thought of design!

      Easy to use
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had had this for a couple weeks and we like to travel a lot so we like to have spare gas just in case. I like this new one with the new spout is makes it so much easier to use and no spillage. Great features.

        Child Proof and Spill Proof!!!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great design for a safer jug. It pours faster due to it let's air flow while pouring. But you can control how fast you want it to come out by pushing the button more or less. It will not pour if it was to fall over which is a great design for transporting it in your car. And it is child safety to. It was simple to figure out how to operate. It has a flame mitigation device in the top of the jug that you can see when you remove the spout. It is made of great quality materials. I would highly recommend this product!!!

          Great safety features
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is great for me to keep some kerosene at my house on stand-by for when I need It. I love all the safety features on it. Small hands of my kids can't open it. Also don't have to worry about It spilling. It also feels really solid and sturdy. Basically most importantly, i feel safer with this one in my garage compared to other gas cans I have seen and had.

            Safety matters
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This can has been a wonderful gas can to use. I needed To get gas for cutting my grass. I sent My husband up to fill up the gas can. It was very easy to fill up and the best part is that it’s super safe. The part on the inside is to keep it from catching fire. I also Like the way that it holds five gallons. My other cans are super small and don’t hold that much gas. This one holds enough gas for this time I’m cutting grass and the next two times. The color of the van is nice also. It’s a real nice blue can. Also the back where you put the gas in the car is easy to use. It’s a small switch on the back. That way your gas doesn’t leak out.

              Great Container But Hard To Pour
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This 5 Gallon Container is a well made and very sturdy.container. It holds up to 5 gallons of Gas or Kerosene and it has a Big wide handle that makes it really easy to hold while pouring the liquid. It has a Scepter that is really hard to use. I could not figure out how to remove it in order to fill the can and how to use it to pour the gas out of the container. It was really hard to use and to figure out how it worked even with the instructions that came with it. I think that if this container had a better option of how to use and pour the liquid from the container it would be perfect. Besides the pouring problem I think the Container itself is great and I would buy it again if it had a better pouring option.

                Works without funnel
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Its not as complicated as might seem to some. It is a simply push with your palm and pour. Its great . We have less dripping and zero spills. Its handy to use even with my arthritic hands. We are glad we chose this one.

                    Hope you got a strong grip.
                    Whoever designed this really said f people who don’t have a workman’s grip. Either mine is defective or they designed it so an average person would need two hands to grip the release.
                    Response from ScepterCustomerServiceNov 23, 2021
                    Hi NoName - We understand your frustration, but similar to medication packaging, gas cans must also adhere to strict child resistance packaging laws. All fuel containers sold in the United States must come equipped with a child-safety lock. This results in an extra step before use but goes a long way to help keep everyone safe. The video "How To Operate Your SmartControl Fuel Container" can be found at the following link and should help: https://www.scepter.com/safety/instructional-videos/ . To use, VENT the can first by slowly unscrewing the cap, allowing all the pressure to escape. Once vented re-tighten cap. Then there are two steps to operation. Step 1. UNLOCK: Using your palm, press the small dark green lock tab in to unlock. Step 2: POUR: Place your fingers over the black grip and keeping the lock tab depressed use the palm of your hand and squeeze to slide the large light green pad forward to release the fuel. Please note that the large green pad must slide all the way forward for maximum flow. For your convenience there is a hook on the underside of the SMART CONTROL spout that can rest on the lip of the receiving tank, using the hook when pouring helps alleviate much of the weight. Tilt the can up from the bottom using one hand, following the instructions for the spout operation with the other hand. If you have any further questions or are still having difficulty, please reach out to our Customer Care Team at 1-855-857-3252 for assistance. We are here to help! Scepter
