Easy Way To Open Chemical Containers
The opener is 91/2 in. long to provide leverage for easy opening of 5 gal. chemical containers. It can also be used for quart or gallon cans, and as a bung wrench for most 30 or 55 gal. drums.
"The EPA recently conducted a rinse and drain study of 5 gal. containers in Region 8. They opened the containers using every conceivable method known, including the Super Church Key, and triple rinsed the containers with water and various solvents," says Stover. "Opening the containers with a Super Church Key and rinsing one time with water was superior to all other methods."
Stover notes that the opener allows 99.9% of the material to be emptied out of a 5 gal. container, versus 98.2% for conventional opening and pouring. The large opener can also be used to rip a hole in the bottom of the container so it can't be reused.
Sells for $3.50, including shipping and handling.
