Do a  Google  --  that is what sent me to Kohls.  Maybe try Kohls online.  I think they were on Amazon too.  I'll tell you this mod is well worth it.

Try Linen's n Things...I got mine here in Canada.  Every store carries the same merch. as far as a can tell (Which is unusal for U.S. chains set up in Canada) They have a store locator.  Here's the closest ones to you.

STORE  DISTANCE  ADDRESS MAP DIRECTIONS
CARLE PLACE 8.0 Miles  175 Old Country Road
Carle Place , NY 11514   Get Map Get Directions  
PHILLIPS AT SUNRISE SHOPPING CENTER 10.0 Miles  5500 Sunrise Highway
Massapequa , NY 11758   Get Map Get Directions  
KING KULLEN PLAZA 11.5 Miles  116 Veterans Memorial Highway
Commack , NY 11725   Get Map Get Directions

You might want to call first but I don't think you'll any problems.

Cheers,
Kaelin

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:

Click Here (www.lnt.com)

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!).

CoffeeMe, you rock!  The click clack lid works awesome.  Thanks for the Mod!

It is amazing how much grinds push out with a Flush,  then pulse the machine, Flush again, and you are all clean.

I think my lid is the 0,6 size,  it cost about $6.99.

The click clack does a good job however I notice it does not blow all the coffee out, when I take the snout off I can still brush out a considerable amount of coffee.

Anybody else experience this

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.

Taking a look at the photo, I wouldn't leave the hose attached to Rocky's snout when you grind for the Presto Scandi. ;-]

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. . . .
