One thing a dustpan must have in order to be effective is a front edge and lip that easily touch a flat floor on which the dustpan is being used. There is no need for a dustpan like this. The only time I have used this item is to sweep up the remains of a broken light bulb I just received it less than 24 hours ago. While I was sweeping, I noticed that rather than the small pieces that normally remain on the floor in a line in front of the lip of the dustpan (as you would normally find), there were instead large and small pieces lying underneath where the dustpan had been. Looking closer I discovered that the lip of this dustbin curves up from the edges to the highest spot in the center, creating a good-looking ridge backed by a round ring around it The gap beneath is the right size. Because this dustbin's lip isn't flush with the floor, I have to move it about every time I sweep, resulting in a lot of glass being spread all over the place as I remove what has settled below. Glass pieces ended up on the floor as a result of the accident.
There was a problem with this dustpan! When you pushed down on the handle of the dustpan, all the small dust and debris simply swept under it.
Metal handles are not found on this product. Despite being cheap and thin, the plastic is hard to hold. Advertisers who make false claims.
It's that dreaded long handle scoop of doom again. I present to you my dog's worst enemy, its worst tormentor, and his sworn nemesis supreme. An anxiety-ridden Thor the Wonder Muffin has never seen a construction as horrifying as this. There is one thing about him that he dreads with a pathological fear everything with a handle. The floor of closets is covered with brooms, curtain rods, floor steamers, and wrapping paper tubes. A total breakdown of mental health. It's no surprise that Thor hates him. The dustpan is pretty much indestructible and used constantly in our warehouse and garage, which is too bad since we use it every single day. Whether it's screws, wood chips or leaves, you name it, this device can handle It is the fact that it fits flush on the ground that makes it so much easier to keep it clean as I don't have to spend five extra minutes trying to find the line of dirt that never fits into the dustpan. I have dropped it down the stairs (Phew, Thor was under the dining room table for days after that nosy attack), I have put it in below freezing temperatures in the garage, and I have generally treated it as a dustpan should be treated. There are no splits or chips, so it works. Over the course of the year, we've used up more than four cheapy dollar store scoops. Paying for something can sometimes turn out to be a good thing.
For only $12, I got both. There are no issues with warped lips on my model since it sits flush with the floor. It is tall enough to be able to maneuver easily, but it is also short enough to not hinder traffic. IF I may, the MAIN and most useful feature for me is the locking mechanism. Dustpan angle can be snapped to any angle using the snap feature This is what the word "pivoting" in the description means? The approach I am using is like a basketball pivot, which rotates with a single point. To make sure it was what I wanted, I had to review the review. It is possible to keep the opening of the dustpan at 90 degrees (so as to sweep and empty directly into a trash can) or to fold one opening upward (to store The lock is easy to use - just press the lock button Clicking the handle into the dustpan is easy, but unlocking it is a bit tricky, since it feels like you might break some plastic every time you open it If you have the pan on the ground and close the handle to the side until it pops free, you'll need to push the handle to the side. Because of the price and the fact that the plastic seems thick and non-brittle, I can forgive it.
There is a huge Despite many reviews saying that it had a gap, I still ordered it. I would get lucky and receive one I liked. This is an update as of The first one I returned and I asked for an exchange. I returned the first one and asked for My second one is perfect this time around and I'm glad I got it exchanged, but if it had been damaged again I would not have tried it a third time, but instead would have just bought from someone else instead.
This is awful. Every piece of dust and floor crumbs gets swept right under the mat. There is no other way to describe it. What kind of quality assurance is there for.
In the end, I had a very disappointing experience with this. I got it and screwed in the handle immediately (the only 'assembly' needed) and went to work, only to find, to my horror, that the handle would not As it turned out, the handle was only able to be upright, at virtually 90 degrees from the floor, and even the slightest bump sent it It was time for me to start my 1-year My first reaction was to send the pan back immediately, but I thought, "There's no way that design could be that terrible!" It was apparent from closer inspection (see image) that the handle arrived assembled in the wrong direction In reality, the tab on the 'front' of the image should go in the hole in the 'back' of the image. The handle came off very easily, I reversed it, and it worked right away! Does that mean there is only Get to know the UN - The experience of HOOKED was one of the biggest of my life. It was when I saw the note on the handle that I finally understood Activate the lock by pushing down! When the handle is in its upright, locked position, a slight push down on it disengages the lock so that you can keep on Despite a few snags, it seems to be worth it overall. It would be better if the handle just reclined a few more degrees backward, without the locking mechanism, but for the price, it's hard to go wrong. A star is docked for the poorly assembled assembly and the slightly complicated locking mechanism. I'm not sticking my toes in the floor!.
