A wide-mouth reclosable container and cover device for containment of liquids such as paint and various other substances. The device includes a container and a mating cover. The container has a lower portion and an upper portion. The upper portion has a wide-mouth opening with a top flange disposed around the opening. The container includes three recesses therein for receiving catch mounts with tapered catches pivotally attached. The catches are used for engaging notches in catch mounts mounted on the cover. The catches hold an underside of the cover against the top flange of the container. The underside of the cover includes a groove for receiving a seal ring with a "V" shaped point. On opposite sides of the groove are "half-V" spacers for limiting the compression of the seal ring on the top flange.
