Well I thought I would chime in to help the people looking for the tighter version...

I picked mine up from The Container Store & noticed that there were a few different "models".
As far as the plastic lid ones go, there's the Original & the Accent.

The Original is .6qt (actually says .6 litre on the bottom -- PART No 3010) and has a white lid with white "clickers"... the clear jar part is straight sided.
The Accent is .7qt (says .7L/.7qt on bottom -- 2010) and has a white lid with GRAY "clickers"... the jar has a slight hourglass shape to it... very slightly wider at the top.

For me the Original lid was quite loose whereas the Accent was nice and snug straight outta the, erm, jar.

hope this helps.

BTW I've also been experimenting with pumping the ClickClack while grinding into the PF (I've got a DL Rocky)...
It does a powdery dosing thing that I'm really liking.

Good to see others find click clack helpful :-)

I have tried both lids after first discovereing click clack fits Rocky nicely, and have found that slightly smaller lid works best for me as it does not scratch the side of Rocky's hopper. If it is a tight fit, you'll soon discover that it slightly scratches the top of the hopper.

One of left works best "Re: Flushing Rocky (Part II)"

BTW, I LOVE Rocky grinder. This grinder has been with me for years and never had any problem, knock on wood :-)

I've first seen the Click Clack in operation on one Youtube video showing it at work, then I found this discussion. When I tried to find this Click Clack product locally (Qc, Canada) I wasn't able to get this line of product in my area.

Back home, I decided to give this technique a try with another recipeint I would find in my kitchen. I was using a empty content of margarine to flush water from Silvia and give it a try in Rocky. Since the bottom of the bowl is smaller than inside of beans container and the side wall of this bowl is taper, so when I push it down, it seals the opening, then the piston action blows the grind out of the chute.

I guess I have similar results than using the Click Clack at no cost. Did anyone else try it?

Hi Deny,

You can purchase the Click Clack at a store called Linens N Things here in Toronto (I have it), dunno if you have those stores in Quebec though..

P.S. I just checked & nope, no store/s in Quebec. Click Here (www.lnt.com)

Craig,

Thanks for this info. As per their website, they don't have store in Qc. Thus, I don't find this product on their website. Sounds they have OXO but no Click Clack from the search engine. I adapts pretty well with the Olivana margarine content for the cost!

I just bought the Accent 0.7L version from the container store and it works great.  Nice snug fit.  Also for $2 more they have a platinum or metallic line.  The lid is a great match to the SS of the Rocky.  It's even better than the white.  Very nice.

I just bought the 0.7L Accent at Bed, Bath & Beyond.  
They had the white version for $7.99 and the Grey/Silver Metallic for $9.99.
I got the metallic one because it seemed to fit tighter than the white one in the store.
And I thought it would look better on the SS Doserless Rocky.
It fits nice and snug.  I can't even remove it without slightly squeezing the release buttons.
It works really well to blow out the excess grounds.
Not a substitute for regular cleaning, but great for minimizing stale grounds on a day to day basis.
Thanks for the great tip!!

This simple mod is a little stroke of genius, for bean freshness and grinder blow out--thanks!

I just got mine at Bed, Bath & Beyond (I guess this is in the "Beyond" category) for $7.99, called ClickClack Accent 0.7L (also labeled 0.7 quarts):

* ClickClack Item 201002 (white)
* Bar Code 9 414969 201025
* Bed Bath & Beyond price tag SKU 7070884

I couldn't find the grey/silver one, but the white looks fine on my Rocky SD.  VERY effective!

What an awsome idea on cleaning , I never considered that the grinds would get below the bottom burr and the holder .

Howeverr the part in my that likes bigger and better was wondering why use the puffs of the click-clack when a minute with  a drill puts a hole  in the top of the hopper cover then just hall out the compresser and give it heck , Should clear out anything short of the burrs themselves. Yes/no

Yea, a compressor would do the trick too. But, I keep my compressor in the garage and my grinder in the kitchen ;-). And, you would need to keep it at a pretty low pressure. Otherwise, you'll blow the grinds out the chute and all over your kitchen (YIKES!).

Maybe the compressor idea would work to clean it out occasionally but not daily.

Good luck!
Larry.
