The pedal is often the first thing to wear out on a step can. That’s why we make our pedals extra strong. They run all the way to the back of the can and pivot near the center — like a see-saw. That spreads the stress across the entire steel platform for a smooth, steady action that will last for years. In fact, we engineered the pedal to last over 150,000 steps — that's more than 20 steps a day for 20 years.
Our patented lid shox air technology controls the motion of the lid. Airflow in and out of a specially designed damper allows the lid to open easily but provides resistance as the lid closes, easing it down gently and quietly.
On the outside, our cans stay neat and clean with a fingerprint-proof finish. On the inside, our extra-thick, double-seamed liners are designed to perfectly fit our cans so they don’t slip, and they stay neatly hidden.
