Quick Tip on Self-Drilling
Twist back and forth while pushing down until you break through your trash can’s wall. It helps to lay the can down on its side, get above it, and use some leverage. Once you are through the wall, just turn clockwise.
Here we broke the installation process down into its core steps. Scroll through the images for a detailed overview.
Step 1: Loop the Strong Strap around the handle of your trash can.
Step 2: Lay the strap down on the lid to get positioning right
Step 3: Install the anchor 3-6 inches below the insert you plan on using to lock the Strong Strap
Step 4: Screw the anchor into place – Note: Twist back and forth to drill into the can, then rotate
Step 5: Fasten a cap to the screw on the inside of the can
Step 6: Install the retainer on the lid along the long stretch of the strap
Step 8: Fasten with a cap on the inside
Step 8: Snap the strap into the retainer – pull to stretch and press it in.
You are officially strapped up – Lock and unlock with ease
The Parts by Name
STEP 1 | Loop the Strap around the handle of your trash can. To loop, thread the insert-end through the eyelet on the loop-end. Then lay the strap flat across the lid of your can.
STEP 2 | Install the Anchor 3-6 inches below the insert you plan on putting into the anchor to lock the Strong Strap. The farther down you install the anchor, the tighter the hold will be. We do not recommend stretching beyond more than 9 inches.
Once you determine where you will install the anchor, you can screw it through the can. To drill, place the tip of the screw on the can, then twist the anchor back and forth while pushing down. Once you break through the wall of the can, just turn the anchor clockwise to tighten. Fasten a cap onto the screw from inside the can.
Step 3 | Install the Retainer onto the lid of your trash can where the long narrow section of the strap will lay. Drill the retainer through the lid and fasten a cap to the screw on the inside. (Note: The role of the retainer is to keep the strap in a convenient place, and to make it possible to unlock the strap and open the lid in one swift movement.)
Step 4 | Snap the Strap into the Retainer by guiding the strap under the 4-prongs of the retainer. It helps to stretch the strap so it’s thinner, then guide it through and under the prongs. Just get it under those 4-prongs.
You’re officially ready to use the Strong Strap
