Please don't sneer! This has been bugging me for ages.
Orange pails from Home Despot. Carrying handle comes off.
I go to put it back. One side goes in one way; the other upside down. Put one in, the other won't go.
How were these put together in the first place? Is it just brute force required to put handle back?
It isn't the damn individual pail... it's my seeming inability to solve problem!
It looks as though the automated assembly equipment bends the loop over
_after_ it is inserted in the hole. To repair, I'd partly straighten one
loop, hook the other in place, insert the other one and re-bend it to hold.
But honestly, I don't think that I've had one of those handles come loose
except when I've actually ripped the plastic by doing something like
hauling concrete rubble in the bucket.
Would flipping the handle onto the other side of the pail solve the
Wouldn't that result in the handle turning "upside down" on the other
Also, I would grip the end of the handle with a pair of vice grips and
twist it to get it into the pail. The handle is fairly long and can
handle quite a bit of torsion before it deforms permanently.
I don't understand the problem. You can manipulate both the handle and
it's seating point. Pliers and/or a screw driver and you're done. 2 minutes
This fellow uses clothesline.
He should have put a handle on the clothesline so it won't chafe his hands
