How are the boxes opened and closed?

We supply a large range of Collection boxes and they all have an individual locking mechanism. Please see below

Twist N Click hand held box:

Designed with a unique twist lock cap and secured with a tamper evident seal. Simply twist the lid anti clockwise and the lid will pop open. Once emptied replace the lid and apply a new seal ensuring the seal is well stuck down.

Eco Hand Held Box

The Eco boxes are not designed to be easy to open, but they are made of extremely tough material which is unlikely to be damaged by firm and positive action in following these instructions:

Remove seal from a round edge of plug (as the broken line indicates)

Insert a suitable strong leaver ( a wide-bladed screwdriver for example) in the gap at the edge of the funnel plug:

Push down lever toward the upper body of the plug and lever plug upwards. Resistance will be encountered but the plug will pop out. Never insert the lever into the funnel or slot.

After removing the contents, press plug back into the hole.

Apply new seal, aligning as appropriate. Ensure the seal is firmly stuck by pressing down all round the edges..

 

Hi-Wedge Collection Box

Remove seal from a round edge of plug at the base of the box (as the broken line indicates)

Insert a suitable strong leaver ( a wide-bladed screwdriver for example) in the gap at the edge of the plug:

Push down lever toward the upper body of the plug and lever plug upwards. Resistance will be encountered but the plug will pop out.

After removing the contents, press plug back into the hole.

Apply new seal, aligning as appropriate.

 

Charity Bucket

The charity bucket lid is secured with cable ties. To open, cut off the ties and empty contents. Apply a new set of ties to secure the lid. (2 required per bucket) Tamper evident ties are also available for this product.

Counter Collection Boxes/ Interchangeable Boxes

The majority of our counter collection devices are supplied with lock and key. The lock is generally on the base and one key is supplied per unit.
