Lid Pops Open
May 26, 2013
The concept behind this trash can is great: lightly touch the front bar and the lid opens. Gently push the lid down and it closes.
I received the can one week ago and it functioned well until the past few days when the lid has taken on a life of its own. Now nothing keeps the lid closed. Push the lid down and it almost instantly pops open. So I have an open trash can all the time--not exactly aesthetically appealing!
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Size
Cons: Quality, Unreliable
