You might want to call first but I don't think you'll any problems.
Just wanted to let anyone (that live in the US) know that maybe reluctant get one because of the fitting, That I picked one up from Linen's n Things (as suggested by Kaelin) last night. I got the .7Qt container:
And it works great. The fitting wasn't perfect but I added some tape like was mentioned in the other posts and it worked even better. The funny thing is, if you don't have the lid on the doser, the grinds can shoot out above the doser and spray you in the face if you're not careful. Which was sort of funny when it happened to me when I was watching the chute to see if the coffee was coming out.
The ClickClack Rocky pseudo-mod (doesn't really change anything, does it?) works amazingly well, once you've found the right sized ClickClack lid.
The first 0.7 Liter/Quart canister I bought (from The Container Store) had a lid that was too little, so I returned it. I passed up a 0.6 at the same store because it had the "wrong" part number, looked around in a bunch of stores and finally found a nested set of canisters that included a 0.6 at Linens & Things. Took it home and it worked great! At my wife's insistence we went back and picked up the 0.6 with the wrong part number--it works fine, too, so I'm keeping it as an inexpensive backup. The same size lid was on some ClickClack cookie-jar type canisters. It seems to be a standard size that they use for several products.
My suspicion is that the 0.7 Liter/Quart size has the same diameter lid as the 0.6 Liter/Quart size, and that there's a millimeter manufacturing variation in the diameter of these soft plastic parts. Get any ClickClack with a thick lid and a mouth about 4 1/2 inches in diameter, make sure you can return it, then take it home and try it out. The structure and diameter of the lid are the important things, not the part number of the canister. It doesn't have to fit all that snugly to work!
The first time you pump a ClickClack and see a big gob of old powder drop out of Rocky's mouth you'll join me in thanking CoffeeMe for posting this suggestion (last January!).

With the upcoming Tuesday delivery of my espresso machine I have had to move my coffee making operations from the kitchen down to what was my wet bar but is now going to be my coffee bar. One of the biggest benefits was that the bar is right outside of my shop. My problems with cleaning Rocky are now fixed . I can leave my shopvac plugged in where it always is and just pull it out to my Rocky. It is amazing how 6 H.P. of vacuum can clean out any left over grind.
I just stumbled across this great idea. Unfortunately, I can't find any of the recommended Click Clack products starting with code 2010 anymore. It appears that the newer, smaller lid is the only thing available both online and in stores.
Has anyone found a replacement for this type of lid that works as well? I have a couple of old click-clack containers with the right lid, but one's too small and one's too large. Just feeling like the Goldilocks of easy grinder maintenance. . . .
