I am pleased to see that it works well as a trash can, and it is nice and easy to use, But the lock on the trash can to keep out animal's out does not work really well.
The lock on the trash can will hold if knocked over but if you have an pet that is determined to get into the trash. I bought this so my beagle would stay out of the trash, he kept knocking the simple-human trash can and the lid stayed on tight but I left for about 6 hours and the beagle somehow got the trash can open and ripped the bag out with the trash can still locked but the lid open, and the lid does not come off like most trash cans when tipped over by your pet.
so the trash can I give the trash can a +4 for a good trash can but not recommended to be used to keep animals out of it for long amounts of time wile away. Would like to see a better and more griped lock on the trash can.
