The Harcostar Child Safety Lid is fitted as standard to the 114, 168 and 227 litre Water Butts and to the Magnum Barrel. The lid may also be fitted to most other butts, however you must check the diameter of the lid, you simply carry out two co-ordinated actions – lift the lid at the position of the latch, push in the latch with your fingertips and remove the lid. This design feature will give you peace of mind where small children are concerned and will also avoid pets etc. displacing the lid. Where a Rain Trap is not being used, the underside of the lid is marked where it may be cut for your downpipe.

The flexible connecting hose enables the water storage container to be placed in the most convenient position. Full assembly instructions are supplied with each rain trap.

The Linking Kits enable two water storage containers to be connected together to allow an even greater volume of water to be stored. The two connectors easily fit into the pre-drilled holes at the top or rear of the Harcostar Water Storage container, depending on model.
The Overflow Kit is essential when a rain trap is not being used to allow the excess water in the container to be re-directed to a suitable drain or soakaway. The connector easily fits into the pre-drilled hole at the top of the Harcostar Water Storage container.
