Underbed Box with Locking Lid
Underbed Bin is a Winner
This box is being used to store my off-season boots and shoes. This will keep the dust off of them and free up my closet floor space by using previously unused space under the bed. I am also storing seldom used shoes in the bin. In the Fall, I'll just switch them around with my sandals and flip-flops.

I was looking for a storage box to house unfolded cake boxes, so I had a precise measurement requirement. The advertised measurement just fit my biggest size box, so I bought two of them.
First, I didn't realize how steep the slope was. The bottom is 14" x 29" (approx.) and the lid is 17.5" x 32" max, so the top is a little less than that. I'm keeping them because I can still use them, but now I have to find something else.
I would still recommend these boxes for their original use, as they're sturdy and the locking lids are essential to keep out dust and bugs. The lower rating is for the fact that I wouldn't have gotten these if the measurements were correct.

I bought these understorage containers to store additional bedding. They are nice, light, and easy to handle. However, they don't like being "over-stuffed" (for example, they don't like compressing a fat pillow). The locking handles on the ends are good for keeping the lid on, but they don't stand up to much stress if you over-pack the container. If they had additional locks on the sides they would be better.
But overall, they are a great product. Easy to stack and easy to transport, and I'm happy with the value of the purchase.

Container needs improvement to the handles
Sturdy and strong but needs a better designed handle. It does not latch tight. While moving it around the lid has slipped off quite a few times.
