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.

    I've used other pail openers...this one is kind of funky to grip and use but does the job. I would say there are better ones out there if you look.
    No more trying to pry open pails the hard way - this tool makes it very easy to open things like 5 gallon pails of honey.
    Works really well. The person who uses it the most rates it better than the all plastic one. The angle is different and with this one there is no spillage of pickle juice!
    ULINE sells a plastic one... These are the METAL. So it will last longer than those. Buckets hurt... I've actually had to send someone to the doctor cuz they hurt their hands on a BUCKET. This will reduce a workers comp claim. WHO KNEW?
    This tool has made our lives easier in the kitchen when opening 5 gallon buckets which we use very often in our commercial kitchen! Easy to use and buckets are much easier to open than manually!
    I don't know how many plastic tools I've broken while opening buckets for soapmaking. Never again, now that I have this. It's heavy duty and will last the rest of my life.
    This is an absolute essential tool for opening up the KoldKiss marshmallow snowball topping. Without this tool, you most likely will not be able to open the tub.
    I've cut my fingers so many times while prying out the tabs on a bucket. No More! This little guy makes it fast and easy. It also has a nice flat head to close the bucket securely. It is solid aluminum so it's sturdy. I wish I'd seen this a long time ago
    We open lots of 5 gallon pails at our restaurant and cidery. These things work great. We keep them handy at all times. And for the price, why not.
    I love my pail opener. Very light weight and easy to use. Sturdy enough to handle having to pound the lid on to a stubborn bucket!
    Purchased to replace a plastic pail opener that broke. This item holds up really well and have had no issues at all using it. Doesn't bend or twist and opens pails with ease.
    The opener is super light weight and easy to grip. The opener works exceptionally well, I was able to open the large storage pails with ease.
    This tool makes opening buckets a breeze. Pickle buckets or any bucket, this pail opener will get the job done fast and easy. I recommend them to everyone.
    Having to open a "pickle" style bucket use to be a pain for our employees. Since investing in this little guy, it has made everyones jobs much easier. Even the smallest person on your team can open a bucket now.
    Perfect tool to open those buckets of sauces and pickles. Good material, solid metal, lasts a long time. Been using this for years and still works great.
    Very strong aluminum pill opener for the size I really like using us to open the small pearls it works really great for that and the little hammer on top is great for snacking the lid back closed
    Very helpful when trying to open our flavor buckets! These save our fingers and fingernails from getting hurt or broken by doing all the work for us!
    a solid and durable Aluminum Pail Opener, at the best price i've found!! while it's possible to open pails without a pail opener, having the right tool for the job makes it easy. it's well worth investing in a pail opener.
    Good Alminum pail opener. Seems to be pretty well made and the price was definitley good. It's definitly a great tool to have in the kitchen, you don't want to be without one when you finally need it.
    If you order an food in buckets this is a must have item. It can be so difficult to open buckets without a tool. I find the plastic tools break too easily and most of the metal tools cost over 20 dollars. This is a great product.
