Make opening buckets and pails easy with this 8 1/2" aluminum pail opener.

If you have ever tried to open a bucket or pail without the proper tools, you know that it is a huge hassle. You can spend a lot of valuable time trying to pry it open with your hands, screwdrivers, pliers and other improvised tools, so save yourself headaches and frustration by investing in this simple yet effective aluminum pail opener!

Sturdy Construction

A thick aluminum body gives this pail opener the durability to stand up to constant use, while still being easy to hold and use. It also has a hole in the handle so you can store it.

Easy Opening

Two grips make it easy to apply precise leverage on pail and bucket lids in a way that your hands and other tools just can't. With just a few quick uses around the perimeter of the pail, you can have it opened in a fraction of the time it would normally take.

Easy Closing

When you need to put the lid back on the pail, it is easy thanks to the integrated hammer head. Simply place the lid back onto the pail and strike it several times around the perimeter with the flat hammer side. In no time, your bucket will be sealed back up.

    This 8 1/2" Aluminum Pail Opener was easy to use. It make opening my pail of fondant easy versus using my hands. Not a bad tool to have.

    I didn't have this when I first opened and had a heck of a time opening the big buckets. My staff and I were really glad when this arrived. No more struggles with the bucket lids. It has a decent weight to it but could be a bit heavier to help closing the lid.

    Easily opens the bucket!

    I used to try and get the lids off just using my fingers... OUCH! It saves bent finger nails and time when taking the lid off.

    This pail opener is the most convenient invention. Usually you have to practically break the buckets to get them open but this tool makes it so simple.

    This pail opener saved the day! After about a year of fighting with 5 gallon buckets we finally decided to buy one of these, and it works perfectly!

    My workers needed a better way to open pails . I didn't know there was such a opener. This really saves time and hands from getting hurt.

    A must have item if you use a lot of buckets. This allows the lids to be removed easily and it will save your finger tips.

    This tool makes it much easier to open pickle buckets. We sometimes reuse these buckets to store chowder in them and so it saves our fingers when we need to open them often.

    from Shawn O'Donnell's American Grill and Irish Pub Posted on

    This is a must have for any kitchen that using lots of pickles like we do. Mostly women in the kitchen and it is tough to open the 5 gallon pails and this has been a life saver.

    Great pail opener. It works really well and you cannot beat the price. It has saved me a lot of time trying to open pails and also a lot of spills that would likely occur if I was opening myself. great product.

    This is handy for removing pail lids although it does not fit all pails well as some are simply made differently. Nonetheless it is much better than what I had been using previously.

    Sturdy and solid pail opener. Will last a life time and solves the issue of opening those buckets we all hate to open without a pail opener.

    from Ckd Restaurants, llc. kitchen Posted on

    Purchased this after I had already ordered a 50lb pail of oil. Was a disaster trying to pry the lid off that pail!! This is a MUST have for any sealed lid pails. Works like a charm and affordable!

    from Primitive Gardens Posted on

    I don't know I functioned without this pail opener. I have carpal tunnel and have little hand strength. This is the only way I can open buckets without help.

    This is the perfect opener for the buckets I use to store my cookie dough and various flavored icings. Works perfect on all different size buckets/lids.
