The Bucket Vise is to stop the bucket from spinning when mixing joint compound, grout, plaster and other materials that need to be mixed. It is described to act like an industrial strength rubber band with "wings." It is placed on a relatively flat surface and the bucket is set into the ring area. The integral "wings" were designed for use under the user's feet to give it even more resistance when needed. To remove the bucket, simply lift the product up.
