Which urns are easier to open after they've been sealed?

When considering ease of access after closure, wooden urns stand out as the most convenient option.

Their design typically involves the simple removal of a screw or two for opening and closing. While metal urns generally offer accessibility after closure, it's worth noting that some box-shaped metal urns, known as "snap lock" urns, seal permanently upon closure.

Conversely, ceramic urns often require adhesive sealing to secure the lid, making them less suitable for later access if desired by the family.
