Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are great! I have a huge collection of board games, and I use at least one of these bins in almost every game I own to hold and sort all the little pieces. They work wonderfully. They make setup and cleanup faster because, instead of having to sort out and make piles of coins or cubes or what have you, I can just put one of these bins on the table and the pieces will stay sorted and easily reachable for the entire game. The compartments are the perfect size to fit almost all kinds of pieces. The lid is nearly flush with the dividers when closed, making these bins great for storing cardboard pieces or coins because they won't slide from compartment to compartment if you shake the box or turn it sideways or upside down. I would recommend these to everyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me right now with this thing? We can't have just a plain white colored latch? How can a grown man use this in his garage when the latch is pearl white. The entire container is clear but then you put a pearl glittery latch on the perfect container. Men beware!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Beads! I purchased several of these, actually all they had in store, for beads. They are wonderful, latch tightly and the dividers don't let anything shift around. One was closed and fell off my bed-it didn't open and all the contents stayed put!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item I am so happy I purchased this case. I am an insulin dependent diabetic and use this handy case to carry my Lantus pens, wipes, and needles. They couldn't fit more perfect in any other case. It is durable and convenient for my needs. I will eventually purchase a few more to have on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Kitchen Gadgets etc. I bought this product to store some kitchen tools like peeler, measuring spoons, kitchen scissors, steak knife and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy as 1, 2, 6 I, like many other highschool students these days, am very busy. My life consists of running from one activity to the next. Not only am I apart of my schools Drill team, I also dance on a competitive dance team outside of school. Organization is a must for me. When i first discovered this nifty, live saving, little box, I couldn't stop coming up with ideas of what to put in each compartment. Being a dancer and a girl requires having hair ties, saftey pins, bobby pins, lashes, and cutips on hand at all times. Not only do I use these containers for myself, I also give them to teammates and friends as gifts. They're so easy to decorate and personalize with names, initials, or favorite colors. I urge everyone I can to get their hands on these compartment containers. If you go to get some and they're all out of stock, It's probably because I cleaned out the whole store :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great battery storage. I got this box as a battery storage container. I have a lot of multi sized batteries that were in need of storage in one place. This fit the need perfectly. They all fit and the container is shallow enough to allow another on top if needed. I am happy with this package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! My daughter recently had her ears pierced and everyone bought her new earrings for Christmas. We had them scattered all over the place until I found this compartment box. Now each pair of earrings has a place and they are easy to find when she wants a specific pair to wear. The container is plastic so if she drops it I'm not afraid of it breaking like a jewelry box. Perfect purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boxes I bought these boxes for earring storage and they meet my expectations perfectly. Easy to see through to find the exact earring that I'm looking for. I have quite a few of these and I use them for several different types of earrings. One is just for the different Christmas earrings that I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great structure, good latches Yes, it's a box, but if it is the right size for what you need (I use it to store extra silverware compactly) is good quality. The latches click TIGHT which is impt to me
Date published: 2014-01-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Organizational Container I like this one a lot. The only thing I did not like was the snap latches were a pearl white; I could not tell that from the images. I think more clear and zoomed in images (or a zoom capability that actually zooms in, instead of showing a larger area picture) would be helpful for detailing. Otherwise, this is a perfect box for what we needed it for. I would recommend this buisness based on customer service alone. I had an online agent trying to help me find the right containers for my storage needs, and unfortunately although we were unable to find all of the containers I needed (due to size constraints), the agent stayed with me for over an hour and half, while I researched, measured, and priced out each option. That alone is phenomenal, since most times a customer service agent is all about a quick turnover on calls/questions. The containers are great but sometimes it's hard to stay with a specific container theme (crystal clear plastic vs. a more opaque plastic, or latched/hinged vs removeable lids, etc.# because they don't always offer certain dimensions in each type, which can make it difficult to keep all the containers the same. One more down side is that the products were available in store, but the closest store to me was 2 1/2 hrs away. They would NOT ship from the store #which could have been a one to two day turn around for being so close if shipped from there#. So I had to wait for the product to ship from their main warehouse inventory. Overall, very happy with what I could find on such short notice. Shipping was reasonable and the order came very quickly #much quicker than online FAQs indicated). I would recommend them to my co-workers or friends/family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Storing vintage earrings! I purchased these compartmentalized boxes for sorting earrings and small pieces of jewelry because the padded, felt lined boxes just didn't meet my needs - they don't hold as much, and are oddly shaped compartments .... these plastic boxes also have lids that snap on securely, so if you should happen to turn it upside (and IF the lid's snapped!) you don't have to worry about everything spilling out! The boxes easily fit in a drawer, stack and have the advantage of being clear, so you don't have to open it to see which collection you've picked up! . so if you have lots of earrings - new or vintage - i recommend this box!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Fly Fishing Hooks Husband wanted storage boxes that didn't have any compartments. He cut and inserted a piece of hard foam the size of the box and now has a perfect holder for his Handmade Fly Fishing Hooks. Easy and very reasonably priced. Most Fly Fishing Hook Boxes are between $5.00 to $25.00 each.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for Small Beads These Large Compartment Boxes are the best storage containers for small beads I have ever purchased. I hate the containers with the removable spacers. Small beads always slip through to the next space. These boxes also have spaces for 32 different types of beads. The best buy for small bead storage I have found at only $4.99 each.
