This Trash can is fabulous!!! keeps odors in, and you barely break the beam and it opens. No more touching dirty bags my mom came over and flipped so I bought her one and she loves it. My husband likes taking out the bag and changing the trash now. Who knew! It's high enough and very sturdy so the pets never get into it or knock it over.best of all everyone that sees how it works wants one. All my grown kids are getting it for Christmas. I have had mine almost a year now and have never changed the batteries yet. A great buy!
