We take special care to package your paint; your paint pail will arrive secured with a black lock and safely contained within a box and in a bag.
A cutting tool is recommended to open your pail and to cut the black lock from its rim.
Once your pail is unlocked, simply remove the bracket at its rim by opening the lever. The lid will lift away without the need to prise it.
For a useful diagram see Paint Buying Guide on our product pages.
Once you are ready to stow your paint simply return the lid and secure it tight by replacing its bracket around the rim, closing the lever.
