Gone in 60 seconds? Time your next treat time with a Garrett clock!

What you’ll need for this Tinnovation:

  • One Garrett tin lid
  • A clock kit
  • Large piece of paper
  • Hardware needed to assemble clock (refer to instructions)


  1. Finish your Garrett Popcorn!
  2. Wash and dry the tin and lid.
  3. Set aside the body of the tin. Consider converting it into an ice chest.
  4. Locate the center of your tin lid: Trace the outline of your Garrett tin lid on a piece of paper. Fold the paper in half twice to form 4 quarters.  This will give you the true center.
  5. Place the template inside the lid and punch a pilot hole in the center.
  6. Assemble according to the clock kit instructions.
  7. Proudly hang your Garrett clock on the wall. Count down to your next Chicago Mix time!
