17 gal. Clear Tote with Locking Lid Case of 5 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of room but.... When the cover is latched, one must carry the box along the long side. If the box is carried while holding the edges near the latches, the latches and the cover will pop open if the box is near its weight limit. On a positive note, the box has plenty of room for storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 17-gallon clear tote w/locking handles Great storage container -- clear so you can see what is inside; locking handles prevent outside air/contaminants from getting inside. Perfect for apartment-style living areas. Good quality item.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from "Locking" mechanism is substandard When I ran into the Container Store to buy a clear tote, I didn't realize the ones I grabbed weren't the "watertight" totes. At first glance, they look the same. When I got these home, I filled one about a quarter full, "locked" on the top, As soon as I picked it up, the lock came undone. Every time! The lock doesn't go tightly underneath the lip of the bottom of the tote, so it is very, very easy to "unlock" it from the bottom. I've learned my lesson to check items in the Container Store carefully to be sure they really are the ones I've bought and been happy with previously. Very, very disappoitned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acrylic see thru bins I love these plastic see thru bins for storage, you can immediately see what is inside and they are the perfect size for storage on shelves. Although many people may think the larger size is for them, they need to remember they have to lift it once filled with stuff. I think these are very sturdy and perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well as expected I haven't tried packing the box to the brim and then shutting it with the locks, but for regular usage it shuts just fine and feels sturdy enough for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the best These containers are hard-core organization bliss. I've spent the last year organizing all the closets, the garage, the laundry room. everything. No matter what I need to store, these work the best!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for storage I bought these to store my off season clothes in my basement. They hold a lot, are not heavy, and stack on top of each other. These are a great alternative to space bags, which I was using before these, until the seal would break and the bags would open up. Perfect for storing clothes or blankets. I can fit a queen size winter blanket in one no problem. The one con is that the handles aren't the most secure and don't really snap into place, and when you're carrying them by the handles they can easily come loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multiple uses! I was looking for a great way to store my Nutcrackers until Christmas without ruining them and this was big enough for them to stand up! Laying down the Nutcrackers makes the hair fall off and I didn't want any water damage getting to them while they were in the basement and this was the perfect size for them to stand and I can get at least 12-15 of them in there - bonus!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good, sturdy and stackable i am using these bins for my seasonal wardrobe, to store all the items i won't use until the fall. they are light but sturdy, easily stackable and lock closed which is everything i need. the only thing that could make them better would be a spot for a label to say what's in the box, but i am using tape for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For EVERYTHING!! I have used these boxes for everything from holiday storage and safekeeping, to sports equipment, to shoes, sweaters, and children's clothes, crafts, and sewing supplies. I could not live without these. The transparency makes them easy to see what's inside, the size is great (not too big to carry) and they stack easy! Highly recommended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Storage I used these to store my winter boots and purses. I seperated them from tall and short boots, as well as various purse colors, evening and day. They are on the very top shelf of my closet...and I can see through them to get what I need when I want!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy I bought 8 of these containers last night so that I could pack up a bunch of papers and shoes and other items to place in my storage unit. These containers are sturdy and the latching lid lets you know that its closed tight. Because of the material that the lid is made up of, Because they're clear, you're able to see what you have stored without having to go through every container.

Community Q&A

Is this airtight so no bugs can get inside.

I need to store in the garage, shed and/or storage unit for about 6 months to a year and want to be sure it is nice and tight. Thank you.
Asked by: MPNC
No, while our 17 gal. Clear Tote features a very secure closure, it is not airtight. For an airtight, water-resident seal, we recommend our Weathertight Totes and Locker.
