I bought these buckets to replace a couple of old PB items which don't have grit guards. I'd read many reviews of buckets with grit guards which weren't held tightly and, therefore, floated. No such problem with these! They are adjustable to ensure a nice, tight fit. The buckets themselves are heavy duty with a sturdy handle and a large capacity. The colour coding for the logo and the grit guards helps prevent the dirty mitt being plunged into the clean wash water! Overall, an excellent product which is well worth the money.
