    The origin of the jerrycan

    The jerrycan is originally a portable tank for liquids of up to 20 litres. It was developed in 1936 by the company Eisenwerke Müller & Co. In preparation for the war. However, the name comes not from the Germans but from the British. The name came about based on the name that the British gave a German soldier, namely ''Jerry'' the cans that they thus captured from the Germans were called jerrycans. But we at Designed By Man do not use these jerrycans for refuelling our tank but for our unique products such as the bar, giftsets, lamp and aquacan which are all made from a jerrycan.

    What kind of jerrycans are there?

    You have different types of canisters such as the military model which is one of the most famous. They can be found in two different materials plastic and steel. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, plastic is lighter, more durable and cheaper. Steel jerrycans have the advantage that they last longer and are better for storage. This is because plastic can still expand or shrink. Also, you have different sizes of jerrycans the most common sizes are 5, 10 and 20 litres.

    What are the uses of a jerrycan?

    Jerrycans can be used for various purposes such as storing gasoline in the car as a reserve fuel. It is useful if you use the jerrycan for this purpose to purchase a spout. A jerrycan can also be used for water storage or even gas. For water, you can best use the plastic variant because it contains fewer harmful substances. At Designed By Man, we use the military jerrycans for our jerrycan bar and the other products I mentioned earlier.

    Want to buy a JerryCan? 

    Then choose these high-quality fuel cans with bracket closure. All jerrycans from Designed by Man are approved by UN, TUV and BAM. The inside of the steel canisters has a gasoline-resistant coating.

    All our canisters are produced in Europe. Because they are produced in Europe, they meet the strictest possible requirements. Many dealers sell jerrycans from China. These canisters often do not meet European laws. 

    We have different sizes namely 5, 10 and 20 litres jerrycans. All these canisters have different colours red, black and green. We also have special colours such as camouflage in beige and green.

    The dimensions of the 20-litre jerrycan are:


    46.8 cm

    34.5 cm

    16.5 cm

    3.8 kg

    Jerrycan Accessories

    By Designed By Man we have several accessories for the jerrycans. Think of a holder for the canister we have in 3 versions. One is only a frame that goes around the can. The other is a holder with a bracket or with a belt. These are ideal items for the can to easily transport in a safe way. Another advantage of the holder with a bracket is that it can be locked so no one can steal your gasoline. We also have spouts in the range a steel version and rubber. These products are useful if you plan to refuel appliances regularly without spilling. The spouts fit all our jerrycans so do not worry about that.
