My drain plug is leaking, what can I do?
Reassemble. Put waterproof silicone on the rubber gasket as well as the threads. You should see where they have silicone it before. Insert the male end inside of the cooler, hold in place and screw on the female side outside of the cooler. Again hold the inside part of the plug as you screw on the outer ring. Tap it until the plug/threads bottom out, and re-screw in the set screw. You might have to make a new hole for the screw and that's ok. There might be some excess silicone that is pressed out, just wipe away. And re-test.
Tightening the drain plug:
Make sure cooler is empty and dry.
Remove the set screw, T20 Torx bit.
With a Flat screwdriver and a hammer, put the screwdriver in one of the 2 notches and tap the screwdriver clockwise to compress the gasket on the inside of the cooler.
The inside piece of the drain should stay still as it sets in a groove and cannot move.
The gasket should compress enough where the outside of the drain plug gets harder to tap around. Water test for about 15 mins by filling the cooler enough where water is just above the entire inside drain assembly, tilt cooler up a bit.
When finished and plug is sealed, reinstall the set screw, most likely it will be in a new spot and cooler should be good to go.

What materials are a Pelican™ Elite Coolers made out of?
The world-class chill factor of the Elite Cooler is the result of two-inch thick, continuous layer of polyurethane insulation. No thin-wall sections, no cut-outs. Just one solid, molded, a thermal protective layer that’s sealed tight with a freezer-grade, 360-degree rubber gasket. The strength of stainless steel hardware stands up to corrosion for the life of your cooler. Better than aluminum. Able to fight off salt, sand, and sun exposure.

Will my Pelican™ Elite Cooler keep my hot items hot?
As a matter of fact, yes! The same two-inch walls that keep the cooler cold will also keep the heat.
Can I use dry ice inside my Pelican™ Elite cooler?
Absolutely! Dry ice may be used inside a Pelican™ Elite Coolers but should never come in contact with the walls of the cooler. It is recommended that a sufficient thickness of cardboard or some equivalent be used to protect the cooler wall from the dry ice reaction in order to prevent damage to the cooler itself.
Please note: dry ice is not recommended for the Pelican™ Elite Soft Coolers
Why does my cooler leak when it tips over?
Pelican™ Elite Coolers are made with lid gaskets of the same material as your refrigerator gasket and performs the same way. If your refrigerator gasket defrosted and you tipped it over, the water would escape. Hard-sided Pelican™ Elite Coolers are not designed to be 100% air or water tight. When hot air is trapped inside of your cooler, this feature allows your cooler to be pried open. This is also great for when using dry ice so that the cooler does not crack or explode.
