Hide with pride!!!!! Are you tired of the jokes from family and friends regarding your eclectic album collection? Do you even know what an album, aka, LP, aka 33 is? HINT: It is a 12⿝ (almost) diameter, virtually flat, usually, but not always black, vinyl disk, used in the old days to lay down tracks of music, and played on a record player, aka, turntable, at the shocking speed of 33rpm. This did spawn the scratching technique which in turn (pun intended), made careers for many DeeJays. Ahhh, memories⿦⿦ Well, this recovering hippie remembers, and it ain⿿t always a pretty sight! I⿿m not talking about my beloved Beatles or Mozart albums. Those don⿿t draw derisive comments, of course. But I do have a secret: my music taste is crazy off the charts (pun intended). Alongside The Police, Michael Jackson, and Queen, you⿿ll find The Partridge Family, Puff the Magic Dragon, Tom Jones, KC & The Sunshine Band, Barry White, and dare I say it; 16 All Time KFJZ Super Hits (does anyone even remember that Dallas station?)! Again, this recovering hippie does. But I digress. Container Store to the rescue! This galvanized cube is perfectly suited for album storage, and if your collection is outrageous, I highly recommend the metal door. Proof positive; there is hope for recovering hippies. This cube is stylish, sturdy, easy to assemble, and will no doubt outlast your collection. So round up your albums, calculate how many you will need, and head over to The Container Store. They have what need!!! Now, if they just made this product for 45s⿦⿦..and possibly those little yellow thingies that go in the middle. You know what I⿿m talking about ⿿ don⿿t fib! April 28, 2012
Handsome Steel Cubes with Plastic Corner Braces. I'm very happy with my purchase of the Galvanized Storage Cubes. They look great. They were only moderately difficult to assemble. If you buy the doors for them, they will be the most difficult part of the assembly job. The only downside to them is the corner braces, which you can't see in stock photos on the site. I've uploaded one for you to see the corner braces close up. They are made of a clear hard plastic but I expected a strong, probably steel, brace. I put 48 cubes together without breaking any of the pieces of hard plastic, but there are no spares provided. Also the corner braces being plastic makes me fear they are not as sturdy as you would expect something made of "galvanized steel" to be. Also, the instructions mention a 'rubber ball bearing' of some sort that should sit between cubes when stacking them. There is no mention of this anywhere else on the Container Store site or other sites that sell them. Regardless, those are not included in your purchase. Seems like something they may have dropped from the manufacturing process but forgot to delete from the instruction sheet. Don't take the above as a warning not to buy these. I am happy with them. I just wish I knew about the plastic corners beforehand. I probably would have bought them anyway. January 22, 2010
Useful & hip Created 2cubes with a shelf & perforated door for college age son's room. All the computer stuff went on it or on it. Pretty cool looking, on wheels, doesn't take up much space. March 2, 2014
Customizing? Take Note! The ordering instructions weren't clear that an extra shelf should be bought for EACH CUBE if you want a flat bottom. I got this for dishes and the bolts that joined tops to bottom cubes interfered with smooth use. Other than having to place a second order for shelves, I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

Answer: 
There are small holes in the QBO that permit screws and anchors to pass through. You simply screw the solution into the wall, and you should be set. We highly recommend mounting the QBO into a stud whenever possible for maximum weight capacity, and security.

Answer: 
Each QBO can support up to 10 lbs of weight, and should not be used as a bench.

You may want to look into our Premium Cube system as it can support up to 200 lbs when something is placed on top of it.
