You can get them at restaurant supply stores, and they're about $13, which is worth it if you're going to be using a lot of it. However, I've found that if you just zip the little strip around the bottom off, then carefully pry the tabs up, you can open it on your own. It took me a bit the first time, but once I got the hang of it, I can now open them fairly quickly, without breaking too many nails.
I even keep a mallet on top of my tub, for pounding it shut again.
If you have delicate nails, though, or poor hand strength, I'd definitely say get the special tool. Heck, if you know someone who owns a restaurant, or is manager of one, you can probably get them to order one for you, and they might be able to get it cheaper.
