Removing the lid of 5 gallon buckets should be an easy task if you have the right tool. A bucket opener is ideal to open the pail's bucket but even a screwdriver will do, too. However, when you do have the resources and if opening 5 gallon pails' lids is a frequent thing you do, it is a good idea to invest in a good 5 gallon pail opener.
