I've got a couple of old 55 gallon barrel feeders that the lids have pin holes rusted thru allowing rain water to ruin the corn inside.

Where would be a good place to find replacement lids for the snap ring retainer or even aftermarket lids that merely sit on top with a lip that slides down over the side of the barrel a little bit??? That isn't outrageously expensive

something like this (aftermarket)

All Seasons Feeder dealers sell that type of lid. Feed stores sell that type and many other after market lids from plastic to metal.

ILove those sit on top lids like you posted a pic of. They are simple and sturdy. They keep water out and our heavy enough coons canít get it off.

Those galvanized lids are the only way to go! I have them on all my feeders. Just make sure you get the one piece ones because some are spot welded together.

Also they CAN blow off during a high wind event even with the deep lip like the one in the pic. I put a large rock on top of mine and have never had an issue since doing that. You absolutely have to remember that its up there though before jacking with your feeder, otherwise you run the risk of taking a rock to the head if it comes down with you under it.

I use these. They will usually last about 5 years before they crack and they will give you plenty of warning before they do. Iíve even had a feeder fall over and the lid not break.

he's right.....bought my lids from West Texas Game Feeders in San Angelo...don't use a rock though...go to HD or Lowes and get a couple eye hooks and a long spring and figure out your connection....piece o cake!

This one is about the cheapest I've found. Rig your own tiedown system.

He speaks great truth! I was helping w my brother's feeder and didn't know about the rock on his. Dropped right on my skull and darn near cracked it. Knocked me to my knees and had a nice deep scalp cut.Ouch!

I have 4 of the galvanized lids I will sell you! No shipping.

I don't climb ladders much anymore so I purchased the one that TexasLefty shows. I built a handle system that lifts and swivels the lid while I stand safely on the ground.

I then use a filler to fill the feeder. And stay safe and stable on the ground.

I picked up some heavy plastic lids made for ring clamps, no bung holes. A guy around Greenville was giving them away. Haven't seen his ad in a long time.
