Composter coming apart lol

Hi Peeps

Long time no posting, hope you're all well.  Felt like I should post this issue on the problem solving forum but it's more plant focussed so posting it here.

Well over a year ago I bought this composter (pictured) but as you can see it wasn't fit for purpose.  The issue mainly exacerbated by my enthusiastic attempts (felt like a good bicep workout) to turn the contents.  However over time it's splitting at the sides.

I'm wondering if anyone has any tips as to fixing this?

As always your help is appreciated :-)

    Two of mine do that when they get very full (old B&Q ones with four panels that slot together vertically near the corners - can't seem to get them any more). I have a ratchet strap around the middle of each one - stops them popping open and easy to remove when I want to take out the front panel to turn or remove the contents.

    One of mine comes with a ratchet strap also.

    Mine didn't come with ratchet straps - they were a DIY fix :p
