This is a nice, well made metal can. Contrary to what another review implied, the lid locks nice and tight. Actually, the lid locks well onto the can without any need to put the handle in the upright position. Definitely locks well enough to withstand the strongest outside winds without being blown off. In fact, I was sortof mad at first because the lid was so difficult to remove and hurt my hands to do so. Then I found just the right way to pull on the lid with both hands and it comes off without trouble.

I live in the city and just got a dog. I leave this garbage can on my front porch for depositing the bags of dog waste after I walk her. I just put a couple scrap brick pavers in the bottom for weight so the wind doesn't blow it over. Again, I never bother to put the handle in the upright position because the lid locks so well. This can is really perfect for my use and is just what i was looking for. I am sure there are a million other unique uses this can would be perfect for as well. While it seems like a pretty simple item, it's the type of thing you could go driving from store to store looking for and not find anything quite like it.

I feed several wild birds. Needed something to hold the seed that the various wild animals couldn't chew through. This is perfect. Service was great, item was perfect.

I *thought* I ordered what is pictured... a 10 gal Behrens can. Instead I received a poor quality can with another brands logo, although the packing slip stated a Behrens was ordered.

It is going to be returned. Which is a big hassle because I do not have a local UPS store.

I ordered 2 locking-lid cans,one 6-gallon and one 10-gallon, both supposedly made by Behrens. The 6-gallon one is perfect and displays the Behrens label. Very good quality. It deserves a 5-star rating. The 10-gallon one does not show the Behrens label and is terrible. The lid does not lock at all and overall is poorly manufactured. I returned it. Be sure you get a Behrens.

I bought the 6-Gallon Locking Lid Can almost a year ago and it is still in use for its original purpose. I have two dogs that go through a 35lb bag of food in a month and keeping the bag in open air is not an option. After doing some research, I found that steel containers are the safest way to store dog food without risk of contamination and I found this awesome little bucket. I put a tall kitchen trash bag in it then pour the dog food in and it fills up almost to the top and closes up tightly. I've never had to use the handle to secure the lid because it stays put and takes decent effort to open. I don't know about other reviews but the huge stickers the can came with were easy to remove and created no sticky mess. Overall an awesome product!

I'm quite disappointed in Amazon for this switch- I thought I was purchasing an item made in the USA. Instead,I got a no-name brand, made in Mexico. It's not a Behrens. That being said, I needed a can with a lid for a diaper pail, and the "fake" can is still the best option I've seen yet- it's just made in Mexico, not in the USA, and not by Behrens. While the can suits my purposes, the lid isn't as tight as I was expecting, based on the reviews of the real Behrens cans. Insects would be able to get in without my diaper liner filling the gaps. I'm very unhappy that Amazon advertised one item, and then shipped a different item with a different level of quality- if you look through the rest of the reviews, this isn't the first time they've done this for this product.

Received this item, a "Locking Lid Can", without the lid, even though the item picture shows a lid, and if it says anywhere the lid isn't included, I couldn't find it. I tried contacting the company and they said it's not their problem, and to return it if I'm not satisfied.

Update* Found this exact item at Lowe's, with the lid, and it was cheaper.

I bought this can to put hot ashes in when I'm done BBQing and it works great for that. this can seems to be well made and its even made in USA. the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the lid came damaged. it was bent in a few places and the lid didn't fit so instead of repacking it and shipping it back. I took a rubber mallet and pounded the dents out and got the lid to fit not the best but hey I'm only using it for ashes so it doesn't really matter what it looks like. I think this was worth the money and I would buy this again.

Very sturdy. I painted it a bronze color with rustoleum spray. Looks great by fireplace.

Good for hot ashes and then set outside away from house. Lid is extremely tight fitting which is a plus.
