I was wondering if the bottoms of the bins still slide out similar to the drawers? If not, it could be hard to reach the things in the back of these deep bins, especially if another is stacked on top. I am hoping to purchase the thin bins to fit in the space between my fridge and counters, but if the bottom doesn't slide it will not be very useful. Thanks!
Actually, these DO pull out like drawers, except for these caveats:
They aren't really constructed to be used as drawers.
For example, are no "stops", so if you pull one out, you might pull out the top and/or bottom one partially, too, depending how the weight of your items is distributed.
Because there are no stops, if you DO pull one out and pull it too far, it could topple.
And also because there are no stops, if you push too hard, that module can be pushed BACKWARDS, too.
In the photo below, you can see each unit can be pushed forward or back from the others, but it isn't a stable configuration.
If you're going to use these inside a cupboard or closet, and they are placed against the back wall, you'll be fine. But I'm using these for a very deep niche in my art studio. So I now realize I'm going to have to have something--an empty box??--behind these units, so they stay put.
I think these are amazing, and I hope they are the right size & shape for my needs.
But it's frustrating that, with a linchpin or two, these could be much more stable, or used as drawers.
