Compactor® Storage Boxes

Now you can enjoy the space-saving benefits of vacuum storage bags and the neat look and functionality of storage boxes! The amazing Compactor® gives you the best of both worlds. Simply fill the included vacuum bag with bulky items like comforters, blankets, sweaters or pillows, seal and use a regular household vacuum (not included) to remove air from the bag. Use the straps to keep everything secure; then close the lid to the chest! Sewn-in handles and integrated label holder make identification and retrieval easy.

  • Use any household vacuum to reduce the volume of your soft-goods by up to 75%
  • Designed to fit on 16" and 20" elfa Ventilated Shelves
  • One-piece construction with hinged lid
  • LED lights on valve indicate when bag is fully compressed
  • Exclusive to The Container Store

Great Product!!!! This is by far the best product I have ever purchased. I got the smaller one of these and it fits four big queen size comforters, and I love that it has a label on it so you can write whats in there to help keep you more organized. They are very sturdy and they stack very nice on top of eachother. I will definitely be buying these again to do my whole closet and hall closets. April 3, 2014
Doesn't keep vacuum - lets air in so expands This product seems awesome at first, but give it a few days and it lets air into the bag so that it's no longer compressed. I could hardly get it back out from under my bed to try to re-seal. I thought maybe I hadn't sealed them right, even though the same thing happened to all 3 that I bought. So, I vacuumed the air out again and very carefully re-sealed all 3, making sure they were completely zipped up tight. Didn't matter - within a couple days the same thing had happened. I don't have the receipt anymore, but would absolutely return them if I could. In addition, the velcro on the sides to make the lid attach to the sides is awkward, nearly impossible to stick together, and of course comes apart within a day or two. Definitely do NOT recommend - they're a waste of money. January 7, 2014
Compactor doesn't work as advertised I spent the last two hours putting away my summer clothes. I followed the directions exactly, and left plenty of space for the bag to seal. Once I vacuumed out the air, and once the "blinking LED lights" turned off, I thought I was set until I heard air coming out of the bag, and the bag began expanding. I quickly checked the seal and it was closed. I am more frustrated about the time wasted with all the packing when I now need to unpack and find another storage solution (other than the vacuum storage that doesn't seem to work). October 1, 2013
Okay... I was disappointed in how much these hold. While they definitely do save space in my closet - it's not as much as I'd hoped. I also wish the box were sturdier and the top secured a bit better. The boxes don't hold their shapes very well, so they don't stack as nicely or neatly as I thought they would. April 15, 2013
