17 gal. Clear Tote with Locking Lid
"Locking" mechanism is substandard
When I ran into the Container Store to buy a clear tote, I didn't realize the ones I grabbed weren't the "watertight" totes. At first glance, they look the same.
When I got these home, I filled one about a quarter full, "locked" on the top, As soon as I picked it up, the lock came undone. Every time! The lock doesn't go tightly underneath the lip of the bottom of the tote, so it is very, very easy to "unlock" it from the bottom.
I've learned my lesson to check items in the Container Store carefully to be sure they really are the ones I've bought and been happy with previously.
Very, very disappoitned.

Acrylic see thru bins
I love these plastic see thru bins for storage, you can immediately see what is inside and they are the perfect size for storage on shelves. Although many people may think the larger size is for them, they need to remember they have to lift it once filled with stuff. I think these are very sturdy and perfect for me.

Works well as expected
I haven't tried packing the box to the brim and then shutting it with the locks, but for regular usage it shuts just fine and feels sturdy enough for the price.

This container was perfect to put all of my winter shirts and coats in. It fit perfectly at the bottom of my closet. I even was able to fit a few pairs of shoes in there as well!
