    Provides a better seal and allows you to pump out the bean hopper, as the lid is deep and has seals.

    Thus by grabbing the lid and pumping up and down, you can flush all the ground coffee out and much easer that using a brush..

    Got to fine one that suits the SB EM0480 as well.

    PS. Kmart have them... The contained can then have the Rocky lid fitted and you still have a something useful.

    Re: click clack lid for Rocky

    Went to Kmart on the weekend... All the 0.6L were sold out... Must have been a local rush on @ Toombul shopping centre :o

    I also made another mod to my Rocky...


    On occasions my beans seem to get stuck and I have to take the lid off and stir the beans up a bit...

    1: 3 x 3BA screws 6mm longer than the standard screws
    2: 3 x 6mm stand offs

    Remove the three legged bean deflector and then add in the three standoff and then replace the deflector and use teh longer screws...

    All seems to be good now. ;)

    Hello, I thought the screws were M4 threads?

    I bought one from Kmart yesterday ($5.50) and tried it on my LUCY. The bean hopper must be slightly different from the Rocky as the lid is a loose fit and doesnt really pump the grinds out. :(

    I might have to make something up myself to do the job.

    I have found that I can pump air with the standard lid on my Macap and MDF.

    This is not possible with all grinders; it depends on the fit of the lid.

    It is also possible on my Isomac Granmacinino, with its standard lid.

    Click clack lid for Rocky - can not find

    Hi,

    I have owned my Rocky for years and have decided to finally mod her.

    Trouble is I can not find the CLICK CLACK brand. Have rung HSW, Kmart and Big W :-/.

    Is there another brand people are using now? If so what brand and model number container, and where can I buy it.

    Thanks in advance ;)

    I'm also looking for the click clack mod, I bought one from big w recently that was too loose. They didn't have the exact model stated here

    What I did when I looked for a lid is take the Rocky lid with me to try it on the container that had the lid. The Rocky lid should be very tight fit to the click clack container. Hope that helps.

    Hi guys with these lids what is your process? Do you pump with one hand and hold the grind switch with the other leaving the portafilter on the base of grinder?

    Can I still expect to find these in Kmart and like?

    I tried Big W and they only had a $20 set of the cube clickclacks. None in Target, KMart, or Woolies. There doesn't seem to be any online way to order them. These containers are a bit pricey and I'm guessing that's why so few stores carry them.
