Under Bed Compactor Storage Box


Product Information

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.

How do we measure?

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



  • 25-1/4" x 19-1/4" x 6-7/8" h

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I'm a big fan of Vacuum storage and this one is definitely the best I've tried. The LED system on the valve is a great feature

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that they are attractive and very well made. Kept something compacted for 2 years. Small one had a comforter, down blanket, and 2 pillows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for College! Bought this last year to put all my daughters bedding in. It all fit. Just purchased another for my son headed off to college. Read other reviews that it did not fit much, but we found it to fit everything and make it easier to load up the car. Fit comforter, sheets, pillows, blanket. Great Buy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot hold much! It only was able to hold 1 twin comforter and could not even close properly. Don't waste your money. I had high hope to organize my closet nice and neat. This item crushed my hope.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smelly Initially I was pleased with these storage boxes when I purchased them last spring, however after I pulled out my winter flannel sheets and comforter in the fall, I found that they stank terribly - I had to wash them twice to remove the odor. I've used storage bags before and never had my clothes come out smelling funky.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Holds one full comforter. Period. Very disappointed in this product. After 1 season (5 months) of being stored under the bed w/ only 2, Full (double), fiber-filled comforters stored inside, the thing allowed air inside. I was unable to remove the Compactor from under the bed until I forcibly removed it by wiggling it side to side working it's way to the edge of the bed & the had to yank it out which tore the handle completely off of the canvas protector bag. The double zipper is double zipped so it's got to be a low quality valve.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The plastic liners leak air I ordered several of the cubes & oblong boxes. Alas, all but two boxes developed big leaks. Two of the cubes worked perfectly and still are great storage today. All the others, by the next morning, had lost their compacted air and strained against the tie down straps, pushing the tops up, maybe 2-3 inches above the packing. We were extra careful about loading exactly as by instructions. I have always found the Container Store (both in store & purchasing on line) to be a place of quality so this was a bitter disappointment. I would buy more, any day of the week, IF some kind of improvement made to the plastic liner seals. Or quality control integrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storage solution! Just got a couple of the large ones and I think they're great. I saved a lot of space and the bags do not leak. The boxes look nice and clean in my closet. I would just improve the construction of the box but will definitely get more of them for my extra comforters

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compactor Storage box This is a wonderful box, you can put so much in and looks beautiful becuase the items are not disclosed but covered. I love it. I only bought one to try it out, and now I am goign to get more, and so it my sister after seeing the one I have.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It does the job The construction of the box is pretty sturdy, but like another reviewer said the velcro closures don't keep the lids (that actually go around the box as seen in the photos) closed. Although I did not over fill the box, the velcros still will not "stay put". But, overall it does the job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from flimsy and failure-prone These boxes seem like a great idea and I purchased quite a few. Unfortunately, the seal on the plastic vacuum bag didn't hold. Also, the velcro on the sides of the box don't hold the lid securely closed, and while using the vacuum to remove air, it is difficult to make sure the plastic bag collapses in the proper cube shape - often the bag becomes distorted and so the outer box isn't a true cube shape for stacking, etc. One of the very few C Store purchases that I truly regret. The gray storage boxes work better but also difficult to stack on each other on shelves

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love it but could use improvements I used to use the ziploc storage bags which you also use to store big/lots of things and then vacuum all the air out to save tons of space, but I found they would always leak over time and puff up again. Also theyre not uniform sizes once you vacuum pack them so they dont pack/store well. This product is AMAZING in that the bag is attached to the BOX!!!! I used it to store my daughters old baby clothing and I got 2 large-ziploc space saver bags' worth of clothing into the large compactor box!! NOTE- do not use the handle to lift if you really jam packed this box- my husband used it to lift the box after we filled it and the handle ripped right off- it wasnt even 5 hours old! I probabl could have gotten a replacement if I brought it back but it took so much time to sort and pack the box i didnt bother. BOTTOM LINE- IM GETTING MORE!!! LOVE IT!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poorly made I bought two of the Large Underbed Box to store bedsheets, blankets, etc. Unfortunately, just a week after a purchased the boxes, both handles ripped right off while I was simply pulling it our from under my bed. It was not caught on anything either time, but the handles ripped of with little force. I would not recommend this product to anyone who has carpet underneath their bed as I feel this may have contributed to the handles tearing off when pulled. This item is way over-priced for how easily it tore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMAZING Storage bags! I can't tell you how many Space Bag's I have purchased over the years and have had to toss after one use! These bags hold the vacuum seal and do not get holes in them!! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for nice looking space saving storage!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but BIG I bought the largest box. No problems with sealing or staying sealed. Holds even more than I expected. But its so big that it won't fit on my closet shelves. Still trying to figure out where to keep it.
Date published: 2014-04-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product This is a great way to store items in closet and label the box to know what is in the product. I've had trouble in the past with the storage bags because something would tear the plastic bag to then destroy the product. The item looks great too. The LED is great in showing when all of the air has been removed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good storage product I really like the sturdiness of the boxes, and my seal holds just fine. But my only complaint is that the box height is too high for any of the 4 beds in my house, so I have to store them on the top shelf of my closet. I was pretty bummed about that, but it's not a deal breaker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE,LOVE,LOVE I purchased 2 of these when the Tampa store opened and boy am I gald I did!! I was looking to store my winter clothes away and my heavy winter blankets so, I picked up 2 of them. I just recently went ahead and took them out of the packaging and to my amazement it has a "vaccum" pack inside built into it!!! I thought at the time of purchase it was a little pricey buy now that I realized it has the vaccum pack built in I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT EVEN MORE!! I will say this, the top is not very sturdy but I managed to store alot of my winter clothes away in it! And you figure when you stack them the weight will balnce itself out. The stripe look is very nice and give the top shelves of the closet a much cleaner look than your traditional vaccum packs. I wish you all can make it to where you improve on the velcro system when you close the lid. I do plan on purchasing 2 more of these and a couple of the smaller ones as well!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from space savers These are really great for me as I live in a fairly small home and with only 1 spare closet. These storage containers allow me to triple the storage space under my bed. I have a king size bed so I was able to use quite a few of them

Will this fit a CalKing Comforter?

I was told not to put "natural" fabrics such as down or wool in these compactor boxes. Is that correct?

Also, what about cotton? That would be a "natural" fabric too.
Asked by: BeccaAnn
Our Compactor Storage Boxes are suitable for storing natural materials such as down, wool or cotton. The materials will not be harmed by the Compactor Storage Boxes.

Is the ziploc bag easily removable? I would like to use this as a plain storage compartment. Thank you.

Asked by: RitaMG
No, the inner bag is not designed to be removed. However, we do have other fabric storage boxes available below.

Before & After Spaces

Stephanie and her family (husband John and kids Allie and John) are fortunate enough to have a sizable Houston basement- nearly 2000 square feet! However, the frequently used space was very unorganized and had become a dumping ground for a myriad of items. Also, Stephanie and her family suffered a terrible flood in the space recently. Because precious items were stored in the space and not in weathertight totes, she was very intent on making sure the space was organized, and precious treasures were stored and protected on higher ground.
