This guest post was written by one of our summer interns, Dorothy. She is working in our marketing department!
I’ve spent the summer working and relaxing here in Huntersville, so I decided to change things up and spend the weekend at home with my family. Home for me is a cozy townhome where my dad and brother live. Little did I know that my teenage brother and his friends have also deemed our quaint suburban dwelling their new hangout spot – lucky me! This usually means lots of videogames, lots of snacking, and inevitably lots of trash. Before the 4th of July festivities even started, our trashcan was overflowing with garbage.
Used coffee filters, egg shells, food wrappers: not so easy on the eyes, or the nose! Yikes, you can see the bag already slipping into the can. Dad was happy to hear that I brought home the 52qt LinerLock Spring Top Wastebasket to try out.
He loved the sleek look of the black can and was eager to try out his very first covered trashcan – a breath of fresh air, literally! After years of somewhat “MacGyvering” his trash bags into place, my dad was at first skeptical of the can’s easy locking ability. However, he reported back that he was pleasantly surprised by the wire latches’ firm grip on the trash bag and how well the bag fit into the can.
"The container is so closely matched to the size of the bag, there is no way for the bag to slip lower in the can and come loose from the rim.”
My dad was able to secure the trash bag in a few simple steps:
- click the lid of the can to the base
- press the tab on the lid to open it
- place the bag inside the can as you usually would
- lift the wire latches in the lid and wrap the edges of the bag around them
- lock the latches back in place and you’re good to go!
So do your worst little brother; we no longer have to worry about the unpleasantries that come with several teenage boys – at least regarding the amount of garbage they produce. Overall, my dad seems pleased with his new Liner Lock can.
