WMF has struggled for years to keep raccoons out of our garbage cans in Inverness. The worn out bungee cord just does not work plus it hurts your hand when it slips and snaps back at you. So I took a chance and bought this "Doggy Dare" device and it has completely solved the problem. Simple to use, no screws or messing with cans. Has an easy snap top. And best of all, it has been 100% raccoon proof so far.
If you have a better solution, leave it in the comments, would love to hear it.
Unfortunately they Doggy Dare doesn't have a web site. You can buy them on Amazon, but we're trying to cut down that. So here is another link: https://www.ospreybay.com/doggy-dare-trash-can-lock-33-ga/
Or better yet, see if Ken will stock them at the hardware store.
WMF has no affiliation with Doggy Dare and receives no financial benefit from this post. But we do accept GameStop stock.
