I got this for a cat food container and I've been using it for about 5 months. It works great. The lid gets opened and closed twice a day and I haven't had any trouble with it. For under ten bucks, you can't beat it!

works well for us, both garbage and now cloth diapers
We've had this garbage can in the nursery for over a year now, possibly closer to two. We wanted a garbage can with a lid so our baby & toddler would not grab anything out of it. Used to throw garbage and wet disposable diapers in this with a tall kitchen bag as a liner, a great fit. Now using as a pail for cloth diapers. It will hold a lot. I do diaper laundry every day though and so far this doesn't retain smells. I clean the pail with vinegar and water and don't yet have a pail liner. The latch has gotten stuck to the lid a few times and the spring hinge has popped out too but I've been able to fix it and get it working again every time. For the price it's a great value. Easy to open & close with one hand. Even my 3 yr old boy can open and close with ease but yes it gets stuck sometimes. I still like it!
[...]This was the only model I could find. After 4 days the spring came lose so the touch button opening no longer works. I am not returning it because I can't find a replacement that would fit my needs. At least this fits 80% of what I need but I would not buy another.
