silent close lid

Our patented lid shox technology controls the motion of the lid for a slow, silent close. When the pedal is depressed, opening the lid, the damper forces air out so the lid opens quickly, then uses resistance to slowly let air back in so the lid quietly closes.

lock the lid shut

A slide lock securely locks the lid to help keep pets and curious children from getting into the trash.

stay-open lid

Dent-proof plastic lid keeps trash covered but stays open for as long as you like — perfect for longer chores.

a simple promise

We use the best materials and solid engineering so our products will last for years.

custom fit liners

Our code K liners are designed to fit this can perfectly so they don't slip. Extra-thick plastic and double-seam construction prevent rips and tears.

More what we wanted

by DavidC

We had the stainless steel half circle can. It worked great, but because of the shape seemed to not hold enough. We also did not like the stainless steel as it showed every hand print. This seems to hold more, does not show prints and works just as great. We do not use the lid lock, so I don't know how hard it is to use, or if it will hold up. We are really enjoying our grey plastic container.

locking mechanism stiff

by JimD

To lock and unlock the lid requires both hands, and a lot of pressure on the thumbs; especially unlocking. A family member who has had carpal tunnel surgery (and not all that recently) can't do it at all. Almost never use the pedal since having used both hands on the lock I just lift it up. Has to be locked to keep the dog out of the garbage.

A disappointment

by ArtM

We thought we had solved our food centric lab's errant ways by purchasing this container. It's large enough to hold the contents of a 50lb. bag AND it locks. That lasted about 10 minutes. She quickly positioned her snout under the overlapping cover and pushed up until it snapped free. If it didn't release immediately she ate the corners of the cover to subdue them and then snapped it open, eventually breaking the locking latch off completely. Within a week this container was relegated to the garage to collect recycleables. We upped the ante and acquired the stainless 46L recycle container with the cover that seats flush within the recess on the top. Although a little too small to hold a complete 50lb bag of food, it has stymied the dog so far.

A wonderful garbage can!

by KatrinaK

This garbage can is very functional! It is large in size, and is very sleek looking. The stainless steel accents on the pedal and handle are a nice touch. It is a great alternative to a full stainless steel bin because you don't have to worry about finger tip marks on your garbage can. It is also great because you can lock the lid closed to prevent children/pets from getting into the garbage. You can also lock the lid in an open position , which is also handy as well. We have had our garbage can for about a year now, and I an very happy with my purchase!
