Misleading reviews How can container store show a decent rating for a trash can that breaks in under a year. All the reviews state that the plastic hinge is too lightweight to support the lid and guess what. They're right. My lid has broken in the same manner. I went to container store for quality and I am sadly disappointed. April 13, 2014
liked it while it lasted It surprises me how much trash cans cost. After a year of use, the step mechanism (which I prefer to the electronic mechanism because I'm after it will break) broke. I love that the Container Store stands behind their products--they replaced it with the same one. After a few months, the step mechanism again broke. The part that is inside is the part that broke, both times. The Container Store gave me credit towards a new trash can. I ended up spending even more! I liked everything else about this trash can, and if the mechanism hadn't broken, I would have been very happy with it. Uses regular trash bags and inner bucket that was very functional. April 1, 2014
Lid broke off after seven months Last week I opened up the lid using the foot pedal, I placed my garbage in the can, turned around and heard a thud. I looked back and the lid had completely split from the hinged mechanism. Well, actually, it didn't come apart from the metal hinge, The plastic lid broke off from itself. I think this is a design flaw-- that the lid is too heavy (especially flipping lengthwise, rather than, say a butterfly opening) for the mechanism, and over time, it just breaks off. I bought it in the store, and didn't look at any reviews. Now, I see others have had the same issue. March 14, 2014
Trash can We wanted a good, nice looking trash can for our kitchen. We saw this one at the Container Store and thought it was rather pricey, but it looked like a sturdy can. We have had it now for 6 or 7 months and are very happy with it.... except the other day, the lid hinge broke. We are not hard with the can, so like a previous customer said, I believe this is a weak spot in the design. I will contact customer service and see if they stand behind this product. March 12, 2014

Answer: 
Set the lid to say open - try this! Look underneath the lid toward the back where the hinge is located, you will see a slightly curve-shaped silver bar. The silver bar can be pulled closer toward you to lock the lid in place. Note: it will not "click" but should glide forward to keep the lid open. You can perform this task in reverse to unset the bar and close the lid.

Answer: 
I tried the other person's answer by sliding some metal bar around... but I wasn't able to have any luck. Any other suggestions?? I'd love to be able to keep the lid up sometimes without having to keep my foot on it.

You should be able to peel of the sticker without any issues. If you encounter any residue, you can remove it with soap, water, and light scrubbing with a paper towel.
