Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I ordered a few sets of these so that my husband would have a place to store all of his vitamin supplements. They are perfect for holding the really large vitamins and it eliminates the clutter I always had in my dining room of countless bottles everywhere. I would also like to add that our original shipment was stolen from our front porch after UPS dropped it off. I contacted the Container Store and I had a replacement in 2 days. Great product, excellent service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good use of space I bought 2 bins and connected them then placed them in my pantry for my variety of teas and drink mixes. So easy to see what is inside and easy to get to my items. I will probably get more to use in other places such as the garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modular Flip Out Bins Our workbench area was a total mess of screws, nails, bolts all in one can. Several Modular Flip Out Bins brought order to our work area so much so that I recently ordered several more to organize our son's area. Though these bins worked for us in our workbench area, I can see how it would help organize scrapbooking/beading pieces, sewing items and even tiny kitchen gadgets. We just love these and hope you will give them a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme Organizing I say that only because if you need a modular flip-out bin to organize your tea bags like I do, you are an extreme organizer. In fact, I'll probably buy one or two more of these handy little bin systems for more tea and other little things around the house. We put ours on the door of our pantry to hold tea bags and I LOVE it! It's a perfect size, holds an entire box of tea bags, (20) and comes with handy little labels and label covers. Very nice material, easy to clean, sturdy and they're great because you can see what's in the bin. We plan on buying more to use in the garage and in my office.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from good for the price, better products exist It's a bit flimsy and needs to be anchored to the wall for it to be truly functional and efficient. Also, the bins don't open as smoothly (they "stick" sometimes).. need to hold pull it a little. I have bins from other companies that are a better quality but will cost a little more. I am returning these because I'd rather pay a little more and get better quality, sturdier and better looking bins. Also, the outside shell isn't very esthetically pleasing. It's made to be modular and connect with other bins which is a plus, but leaves the container looking unpolished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Bins I purchased these bins to store my brads and other related items that I use for scrap booking and card making. I wanted something that I could place on my work table, that I could use to sort everything into categories, and have easy access to. These bins did the trick. I will definitely purchase more in the future if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many possibilities! I absolutley love these modular flip-out bins. I currently use them to hold the coffee pods for a single serve coffee machine. It is the perfect size and you can see exactly which coffee type is in each bin. I will be getting another one to hold the various hair ties and clips that my girls like to wear. As I am writing this, I am thinking of more uses

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Husband can find his pills! This was an end cap find! We take lots of vitamins and herbs and our bathroom cabinet stays full. It was a bit daunting to find even daily bottles. We bought four of these bad boys and....viola! It is wonderful! No more sifting through bottles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for kids' miscellany This is a great container for ponytail holders, clips, barrettes, doll shoes, small plastic things your kids get in goody bags and love even though you want to throw them away! Small, easy to open and close, neat-looking. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best modular flip-out bins to organize teas When I purchased this flip-out bin I knew exactly what I was going to use it for. I used it to organize my mother's tea bags. She use to store her tea bag boxes everywhere in the cabinets. I labeled each bin with the names of her teas. I put the caffeine free teas in the top three bins and the others in the bottom bins. Now all her favorite teas are nice and neat and in one place. The modular flip- out bin looks good on the counter. If she needs more room she can easily put it in the cabinet. The modular flip-out bins are stack-a-able and she can add another for more teas bags as she needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from not FLIPping-OUT Our daughter's ponytail holders, barrettes, bobby pins and clips were spilling out of a solitary basket and had to be dumped every morning. With the modular flip-out bin, we sorted her bobbles by color and voila, I'm not flipping out every morning due to just one more mess to clean up :)

How T x W x D are each container?

Asked by: willyb
I can't believe you made me go measure these. :) This info is for the bin itself & not the compartment it sits in. The front width is 3-1/2". Front height is 4-⿝". Back height is 3-¼", those measurements are from the outside. The depth is 3-¼" (outside), inside depth from clear panel is 3".

Does it have to be mounted?

Can it be placed on a desk and opened without tipping over?
Asked by: Myisha
Yes they can free stand, they are sturdy, but I might not recommend going higher than 2, otherwise you will need to be mindful of opening the bins without tipping. They are hefty an not the cheap plastic. I do highly recommend them.

Are the bins removable, or do they only tip out?

Is the Back Flat?

I want to add magnet stripes to the back but I was wondering if there were any ridges on the back of this.
Asked by: Myisha
If you are referring to the "cabinet" and want to put magnets on the backside, then there is about â¿¿" (+/-) backset/inset of the back panel into the support (horizontal) sides . The overall cabinet might be too heavy to install without screws. If you are referring to the back to the bin itself, yes the back is flat. The overall structure is very sturdy which makes them a bit "heavy" when empty. I hope this is understandable.

Can you hang these securely from Elfa utility board hooks?

I want to use these bins to hold screws, etc., so it will be somewhat heavy when full.
Asked by: Jbred
we do not recommend securing our Modular Flip-Bins to an Elfa Utility Board with hooks. Rather, it will sit on one our 10" Elfa Utility Shelf/Trays and faithfully hold your household hardware and odds & ends.
