Bucket Lid Removal

Call it the "sissy method" but I like using this more than my fingers lately for fracture and waterproofing membranes.

My husband got me one of these as I am small and don't have a ton of finger or upper arm strength. I love it - gets lids off of big buckets without destroying my finger tips and taking a half hour....

Mine actually came from a food service store (he remembered using one from his high school days working in a hospital cafeteria) - the big 5 gallon buckets that commercial food items like pickles and other stuff come in are the same as joint compound. It's a big hunk of aluminum, so they aren't exactly cheap, but worth every penny if you ask me. (hmmm - looks like the ones on Amazon are totally cheap )

I have a feeling you are not the only one... I've never hidden that I'm a woman, but I'm not sure I've outright mentioned it either..

Doesn't make a difference but I just assumed and you know what they say about assuming.

Jerry I got mine off of Amazon, more specifically the winco one. $8

I believe Charles has linked a search for one

Palmer I saw a guy use one on a job for 5 gallon paint buckets, I immediately thought of ripping off lids with my fingers for fracture membranes..... "Where did you get that!?" I yelled haha

I'm little ... I'm only 5' tall and weigh in a little over 100lbs...

I'm not a weight lifter, but I'm not super wimpy, at least for my size either. I can pick up and carry about 50lbs in a bag or bucket (drywall and plywood are too big for my arms though..), but a 5 gallon bucket is about 1/3 my size and depending on what's in it, 1/2 my weight. Getting the lid off can be a sweat inducing, swearing session for me.... I think they hubby listened to it one too many times and came home from a run to Cash and Carry with a lid opener one day. What a thoughtful guy

Palmer, I'm about 8 inches taller and 50-some pounds heavier and I think those little tools are wonderful, too.
