3 reasons why varmint vault is best

Some things to consider when choosing the right animal resistant can:

If chewing is occurring around the lid area of the garbage can, which is usually the weakest entry point we would recommend our Bearicuda Stealth Models (STL296, STL264 and PAK132) which will work best. The reason being is that these models have a metal band around the lid that will help prevent chewing around the lid and create less leverage for the animals to continue this chewing process. Yet this does not mean a critter may not try and chew in another area of the garbage can, the chances are small but yet can occur. Another option is to try our Bearicuda Fortress, which is recommend for animals that gnaw (PAK196 and PAK150), this is a screw top lid with a very heavy side wall and lid construction. Again there are no guarantees but 9 out of ten times these two options will prove to be successful. And in most cases many of our customers select our VarmintVault™  model for non bear related issues.

We strongly recommend VAR264 and VAR296 if you have animals that pull the tops of your lids currently. There is no flex in the lids of VAR264 and VAR296. VAR232 has flexability to the lid which is not ideal for animals that pull lids upward.

Varmint Vault™ - Attractive Animal Proof Garbage Can Keeps Critters Out of the Trash

Our VarmintVault™ is the only animal proof trash can on the market today that offers style and functionality. Opening and closing this animal resistant, proof garbage can is a cinch! It has an automatic latching mechanism that will latch shut as soon as the lid of the can is closed, so there are never any worries about manually clasping the lid down unlike competitive models. There are also no moving parts unlike other animal resistant garbage cans that have metal clasps that flop around and have a tendency to break from constant wear and tear of refuse companies handling your trash every week.

The VarmintVault™ also has a double walled rotationally molded body and Lid unlike any other animal or raccoon proof garbage cans which means more strength and a tougher more resilient plastic outer shell. The lid is also double the thickness of any other animal resistant, proof trash can, just compare our chew resistant corners to that of any competitor can. The corners on the back side of the lid where the handle and lid attach are a meaty 2” thick, unlike any competitor models that are less than ¼” thick.

We understand that garbage cans can take away the beauty from any home as well as a manicured landscape but not with our VarmintVault™! These critter proof garbage cans can stand beside any beautifully landscaped yard and the most gorgeous homes, period! Our animal resistant and raccoon proof trash cans look so good there is no need to even put them in an enclosure or hide them in your garage. The VarmintVault™ is aesthetically appealing unlike almost all other plastic garbage cans on the market today that are a very plain and have a cheap looking plastic appearance.

Take note! Just compare our granite like finish on our VarmintVault™ animal proof and squirrel proof, resistant garbage and trash cans, it’s unlike any other finish on the market today. With our simple Twist Knob on the top of the VarmintVault™ opening this raccoon proof, squirrel proof, resistant garbage can is simple unlike other any other competitive models that require either awkward manual thumb latches or have heavy and bulky metal that surrounds the top of the lid.
