Rated 5 out of 5 by Mission Accomplished I've now got all my Christmas decorations in clear bins; I can see all that is in there in addition to having them labeled. These 17 GAL totes are the perfect size; not too small or too big. March 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome for Storage! I bought these for college, and I took all of my clothes inside them, which was a surprisingly heavy load!! But they are really sturdy and helped me organize what went where, because I was able to see what was inside of them. Definitely would recommend getting these for mass moving of stuff! April 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Love These Totes! I love these totes! They're sturdy, high quality and attractive. I use them to store my off-season clothing, memorabilia, holiday decorations, you name it. I just sent my son off to Texas with 6 of these stacked neatly in the back of his car with all of his belongings for 3 months! May 19, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. January 1, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by 17 gal. Clear tote Good good good product. I love this box comes with the locking lid. Made of strong plastic. You can even storage some extra stuff and the lid wont change shape. Worth the money June 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It got the job done Excellent Excellent Excellent I would absolutely recommend this product to everyone I know.. Made my life easier May 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent storage units The units are well-made and spacious. I especially like the side lock pieces which prevent items from falling out. November 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 17 gal. Clear Tote with Locking Lid The containers are perfect for the needs of our business storage closet. It makes it much more organized and the see-thru containers make finding things a snap! Thank you! May 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by love it Love that they are stack-able and they are the perfect size to fit on my shelves. Also not so big that I cannot lift them easily but large enough to hold bunches. March 18, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by "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. January 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great This container was perfect to put all of my winter shirts and coats in. It fit perfectly at the bottom of my closet. I even was able to fit a few pairs of shoes in there as well! April 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by invaluable these work great for storing stuff in our damp basement! April 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Straightforward and reasonably priced Classic clear tote. Works as I expected. Does the job. April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! April 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. March 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! March 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price and quality! Large, high quality, and perfectly priced clear totes with lock tops. Exactly what I was looking for to keep my precious items dust and moisture free! February 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE this stuff! These containers are rough, tough and perfect for storage. Being able to view the contents without opening is a huge bonus when hunting for that elusive item! February 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 17 gal. Clear Tote Excellent closet storage container for clothing, comforters, handbags...very useful for all types of items! You can easily see what's in the container should you need to access an item. Love it! May 7, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by college dorm storage SAVER PERFECT for college dorm extra storage. Clear and visible and strong enough to stack many on top of each other. May 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great storage I love how the clips keep the lid secure. It makes it easy to move it around with out it opening. April 26, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. April 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!! April 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! April 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great We use these to store clothes in our storage space as well as my son's old toys. They work really well. March 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great! I recently moved and found this product is very helpful. I can use it as a moving box while I moved and I also can use it as a storage box after I settled in the new apt. Strongly recommend it to other friends. March 19, 2012
