"...For Use With 1TMH6 Steel Pails and BucketsBlack..."
One would think then it's a done deal to just search Amazon for "1TMH6 Steel Pails" or "BucketsBlack steel pails." Wrong. You are left with enigmas inside paradoxes inside the Minoan labyrinth.
The anemic 12"-diameter rubber gasket glued inside the lip of this lid did not form an air-tight seal for the 5-gallon steel pail. Not even close. This broke my heart and fundamentally blew my project out of the water. Whether the lid formed a water-tight seal or not, I didn't check, because if I did not have an air-tight seal, the lidded pail was useless to me.
After a couple of months, Manny, the super of my apartment building was able to find me a 12" rubber o-ring. This worked beautifully, after I scraped out the cheap gasket that came with the Vestil lid, cleaned out the groove, and glued in the o-ring with a silicon adhesive. This gave the 5-gallon pail an air-tight seal. This put my project back in business, after months of the feelings of futility and impotence that the vague descriptions of Amazon products so often bring.
The upshot is, if you want this to be an air-tight steel lid for a 5-gallon pail, you will need a super like Manny, because you won't find a 12" rubber o-ring on Amazon -- or even if you did, its product description would be ambiguous at best.
Both arrived I put it on the pail, the lid fit but the locking ring didn't. I thought I got had! after taking time to examine the locking ring I found that one side was wider than the other. I flipped it over and it fit like... it was made to go on the 5 gal pail. Go figure!
I highly recommend this if you have a 5 gal pail of the Berrymans carb cleaner - B-9 COLD PARTS CLEANER -- 5 GALLON It fits perfectly, keeps the cleaner from evaporating, and most importantly keeps the cleaner in the pail if it is accidently knocked over as it is expensive and the fumes are dangerous.
I couldn't be more pleased with this product.
The thin smooth black lid is NOT as good as the original orange ridged lid that came with the five gallon can of Berryman B9 carburetor parts cleaner.
When I got the can with the original orange lid, I could turn it upside down without it leaking.
I examined the orange lid and the black lid that came with the locking band. The gaskets on the Berryman lid was a black material which is definitely designed to resist the carburetor cleaner, while the lid supplied with the band has an off white gasket.
I compared the rims of the two lids and they were apparently the same, except the orange Berryman lid had the steel locking tabs.
Using a pair of aviating snips, I cut off the metal tabs flush with the bottom of the slots between them. They I sanded the raw edges and hammered the edges down so they did not stick out..
The lock band held the modified original orange lid perfectly.
The whole modification took about twenty minutes.
Now, I know that the seal would NOT degrade, if the car leaner attacks the seal on the thinner black lid.
It arrived in a flat cardboard package, intact with no dents or scratches.
