Why Manhole Covers are Round?
Difficulty Level

Why are manhole covers round? Do manhole covers really need to be circular?

View Answer Comments(3)

A round manhole cover cannot fall through its circular opening, whereas a square manhole cover could fall in if it were inserted diagonally in the hole, causing lots of problems.

Because the round covers cannot go inside the manhole,wheras covers of other shapes can.
