I cannot get these lids on these buckets. I have now attacked them with a hammer and wooden board, and after phoning bee-equipment for advice, cut a slit in the side (a fiddle), and then whacked them on, but still no success, they just sit lightly on top but will not snap close. I will have to purchase new buckets from somewhere else, which is annoying as I bought 6 of them.
I bought this at the Spring Convention because it was a good price. Haven't used it yet except for syrup, maybe for elderflower cordial next month before honey as intended in August!
