How do I use GladWare® containers with interlocking lids?

Locking lids together is easy — just place one lid on a flat surface and a second lid of the same shape on top. Gently press down on the button in the center of the top lid until you feel the two lids connect. You can repeat this process to lock additional lids of the same shape onto the stack. Once you have locked lids together, store the stack of connected lids in your container storage area. That way, your lids will stay organized and you’ll have the right lid when you need it.
