Crush-a-Can 5 "FANTASTIC - JUST WHAT I NEEDED!" Mrs Tomlinson 06 August 2012 I read the reviews prior to buying and was very hesitant. The lady in the shop was very reassuring so I bought it. I cannot see how these people couldnt get it to work - its brilliant and even my 12 year old daughter can do it easily. We wound the pin right out to maximum and it stays in that position and we always put the open end of the can facing whoever is crushing it. Result is 100% of cans crushed. I love it, one of the best items I have bought and it folds up and lives in my recycle tub in kitchen so I crush the washed out cans as I use them. Cannot recommend highly enough!
