Tool organizers are the single most popular bucket accessory out there. These versatile utility covers slip onto a 5 gallon bucket similar to how you would put on a very large tool belt or tool vest.
In fact tool organizers are so popular that you can get ones specifically designed for the types of tools you’re holding – whether you’re a contractor, gardener, or even a seamstress!
I’ve recently started using cheap metal hooks to add a bit more utility to some of my buckets.
If you’ve ever spent several minutes wrestling with a well sealed snap lid you may have experienced what I call “bucket fingers.”
There’s actually a trick to opening a bucket lid. Pull out on the lip rather than up. But some lids are so stubborn that even this secret pro bucket-wrangler technique isn’t enough.
Prior to using a bucket wrench, I used to get such bad bucket fingers that for a while I’d lose the feeling in my finger tips!
By combining 2 of mankind’s greatest inventions – the bucket and the wheel – you can come up with some great combinations.
