The iconic jerry can was designed for the German military in the 1930s, and took its name from ‘Jerry’, the popular slang at the time for Germans. Its seemingly-simple design includes a number of clever features such as the triple-handle that allows two empty cans to be carried in one hand, or a heavy can to be carried by two people.
The highly functional design was ultimately copied by both American and British forces for their own militaries to use, and saw service all over the world. So good is the design that it remains almost unchanged to this day.
Hytek’s traditionally-styled jerry can is made of mild steel, painted green and with an internal coating that makes it suitable for use with water, kerosene, petrol or diesel.
This jerry can is suitable for transferring and storing small amounts of fuel or water or, combined with an optional flexible spout, can easily be used to fill vehicles.
The can has a 20 litre capacity and weighs 4.4kg when empty.
