The Heavy Duty Pail Opener is designed for Non-UN rated plastic and steel pails. One end is used for resealing lugs for intermittent use, and the other end has a curved hook to open steel pail lugs. This tool is not designed to reseal pails or to be used as a pail closing tool. There is a cutter built in for cutting through slits that are often found on plastic pail lids. Depending on the lid, you may even use the angled hook or side tong to pry off those plastic lids.
Solid steel zinc-plated construction
Plastic handle grip increases leverage and is easy on the hands
