The Real Solutions trash can from Knape & Vogt (model# TM-32-R-C) mounts inside your kitchen cabinets to swing out automatically whenever the door is opened. The chrome can holds 32 quarts and can be mounted on most frameless and face frame style cabinets.

The Knape & Vogt pivot out trash can is available at The Home Depot. Watch this video to find out more.

Jodi Marks: You know there’s nothing like having an organized kitchen because it makes cooking fun, but it also makes your clean up go a lot faster.

Shea Pettaway: Yes, you got the swing out waste bin. It is a great tool that you can put in your kitchen, it actually swivels on your door.

Jodi Marks: See that’s neat for cleanup. You know, when you’re retrofitting your kitchen, typically you don’t have a trash can that’s accessible inside your cabinet. And even if you do, you got to open the door and then pull the waste bin out.

But with this one, Shea, it mounts to the door. And as you open the door it actually kind of rolls out towards you and the lid pops off at the same time.

Shea Pettaway: Right.

Jodi Marks: So you’ve got, you’ve freed up your hands.

Shea Pettaway: Right. And another great thing, you can put your trash can liner in and snap it in so that it stays in place.

Jodi Marks: Now, all the tools come with it, right?

Shea Pettaway: Yes. It’s very easy to do. They have templates for you to use, and just a few screws—all you need is a screwdriver.

Jodi Marks: That’s fantastic. So not only does it make installation easy, but it’s going to make your kitchen cleanup that much easier as well.


  1. I was disappointed that you did not mention how confusing the installation instructions are. While most cabinet doors are framed, the instructions are written for slab doors. The instructions are written for a right-hand door (looking at the cabinets) so the installer must mirror them in his or her head. The templates are confusing, simply included, with no indication on each sheet how it should be used.

    I eventually got the holes drilled, but had no confidence they were in the right place until I was finished. As someone who created perspective drawings for installment projects at one point in my career, I give these documents a failing grade. You, obviously, had someone with experience put yours in. You should have warned the viewers that it’s not so easy for a homeowner who doesn’t do this every day.

  2. I agree totally with the previous comment. I consider myself above average as installations go with most things. I found these directions and plans very confusing and vague. You need to watch someone for the first time trying this installation and cater to them , not someone who knows the product.

  3. Agree with everyone, it took me hours to finally get the stupid thing installed, if the drawings were for a hydraulic or electrical installation the guy who did them would be sacked. On a good note, wife is happy ?
