This is a simple, practical post for those who store food (or other survival materials or equipment) in buckets.
If you have ever struggled with opening a bucket by hand, you know it can be alternatively frustrating, difficult and painful – or all three!
Buckets made for water and airtight storage are supposed to be difficult to open; otherwise, the entire point of using a bucket to protect its contents is lost!
Because of that, though, storage buckets can be very problematic to open.
One tool can make this all easier though.
A bucket wrench, or opener, can be purchased at most home improvement stores or contractor retailer, like a carpet/flooring supply company.
The bucket wrench allows you to use torque and a ledge on the wrench to open the bucket safely and easily.
