How do I detach and re-attach the wire-bails from the Pickl-It?

Removing the bail-wire two-part assembly from the Pickl-It container and lid, preserves the shiny, stainless-steel finish, caused by harsh dishwasher detergents.

Removing and reattaching the wire is very simple process, demonstrated in the following photos:

Graphic No 2 Remove the Pickl-It Lid
  • Unsnap the lid by lifting the triangular latch
  • “Pinch” the lid loops together – they’re located on the opposite side of the latch, holding the Pickl-It lid to the container’s wire-bail hooks
  • Unhook the loops, one at a time, first the left, then the right. You may need to lift the lid up, and tilt it a bit to release the lids loops from the container’s wire’s hooks.
