Broken Wheels!

I ordered seven of these to use for international travel. Five of the seven had broken wheels when I took them out of the box. The wheel housing is brittle and useless! I returned all of them. Contico needs to re-engineer this product and Walmart needs to discontinue offering it online. Buyer beware!
Broken Wheel! AAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!Crunch....wheel housing broken!

Arrived with a broken wheel

This locker arrived and I heard loose pieces rattling around inside the box in which it was shipped. When I opened the box and removed the locker I found a washer and a small jagged plastic chip inside the box. I immediately inspected the locker for damage and found the housing for one of the two wheels had broken and was falling out. The box it shipped in was undamaged save for a long very fine, very clean cut along one side. Reading other reviews I can safely say it's a manufacturing flaw that needs fixing. Pics included.

Good Product, Horrible Shipping

I ordered 2 of these and had them sent to my son stationed overseas. One of them arrived utterly destroyed. Not a huge deal if he were here in the states, however he can't just go to the local post office to have it shipped back to Walmart. I know the item is decent quality as GI's are using the heck out of them all over the world. Let's see what Walmart will do for this one...

Mission friendly

For the last 4 years I have recommended this product (or the similar one without wheels) for use on missions trips to Haiti. We have taken close to 100 of them. They are extremely strudy and hold a lot of stuff. The airlines have no objections to them and they stack well. In addition, the missionaries love them as perfect for storage and security.

Contico vs Sterilite, side by side review.

I bought both lockers before sending my student off to college. The special order Contico Storage Locker(C) is a little stronger than the Sterilite (S) unit, sold in stores. S unit comes in different colors. Both show a front handle to lift the locker if empty. Contico is 2.5 inches longer but S unit is about an inch taller. Base on C model mates into a slot on its lid making a sturdy seal all around. S model only mates partially around lid. Both lockers have molded plastic hinges. Contico has one metal hinge rod that would be more secure if the ends were bent in an L shape, to prevent removal. Sterilite has two short hinge pins. Both units would be strong enough for a kid to stand on, probably not strong enough for a college student. Neither unit is bullet (or hammer) proof for security. That's why I only gave a 4 star rating. $10 less, color choice, and an 'in store' purchase may make the Sterilite better for you. Order the Contico unit early, 'ship to store' is free.

Strong & Locks Perfect for Kids at Camp

This is the product recommended by all the Scout leaders for Scout summer camp. They swear they last for years. I did go crazy trying to find this at Wal Mart as I was looking in the wrong department. This is in AUTOMOTIVE DEPT not sold with all the plastic home storage where the zillion other bins of every shape and size are sold. It has built in holes to add a padlock to. This makes this product different than some others on the market including other models made by CONTICO. These are strong. The kids sit on them as seats, and use them as a step up to the top bunk bed. They are thick and resist rain. The black dark color is a bonus for use outdoors, putting on dirt ground temporarily etc. Other brands sell light colored plastic which would look horrible after one use at camp and could stain. The price for this product is up to half of what some similar plastic boxes with locking ability sells for, a bonus.

Exactly what I needed

All I needed was a lockable storage container to put in my closet. This is perfect. It is a bit flexible, the plastic is not rigid enough and the lid does need a bit of guidance to allow the latches to line-up and lock properly. But if your not using it to travel, or going to be putting it through a lot of abuse, its fine. Another review said they had a hard time finding a lock that fits it, I had no issues, I simply bought a 1-1/2" padlock and it fits perfectly well. I also read a review that said they had quality issues getting it shipped to them, but I had no issues there either, my container arrived undamaged. I can't review the quality of the wheels on the unit, because I haven't and probably won't ever be rolling it around anywhere, they look a bit cheap, but like I said this product doesn't seem like one I'd choose for travel so I can understand why the wheels wouldn't be awesome. All in all if your looking for a super affordable locking storage unit for around the house, this is a good choice.

Perfect for dorm room!

I scoured the internet, looking for an affordable trunk to buy for my dorm room, that I could also lock up to keep all of my stuff safe. If I found a trunk that locked, it was ridiculously expensive, and the ones that I could afford didn't lock. Bottom line, this was the only trunk I found that didn't bite into my very small budget and is sturdy and lockable. The molded handles on the side make it easy to carry and prevent it from being extremely unweildy. The wheels also make it so easy to slide up under the bed, no matter how much junk you cram into it. One tip: never lose the keys or combination you keep for the lock that you use on the trunk, because I swear, you CANNOT BREAK INTO THIS THING! I love it! I would recommend it for storing just about anything!

NOT accepted by airlines

These trunks are wonderful - except for air travel. I have used these trunks many times on many airlines but things seem to have changed. American Airlines - and possibly other carriers have decided these trunks are "plastic boxes" and will not check them for trips to many locations in Latin America, the Caribbean, and Mexico during certain times called "embargo periods". American Airlines defines excluded "boxes" as ..... "A "box" is defined as a six-sided container of any size, constructed of cardboard, wood, plastic or metal, which is either square, rectangular or cylindrically shaped and is not normally used for the transportation of items associated with air travel. Plastic tubs/containers and/or coolers are considered to be boxes." A vague description at best. Apparently these fine trunks are not considered " normally used for the transportation of items associated with air travel". Walmart should reconsider claiming that these containers meet airline regulations - - or, better yet, complain to air carriers starting with American Airlines. Thank you

A great value!

These are much better priced than most footlockers of similar size. The only caution I might add is that the plastic is a bit more flexible/thin than it should be, resulting in a bit of awkwardness when lining up the edge to latch it shut. The rear hinge is merely protruding plastic pieces that snap together, rather than a true hinge with metal pin. The price at my local store was under $20, so check your local store first. The local Walmart also had the similar sized Sterilite footlockers for about $16, and I bought some of them as well. They seem a bit more solid, but they come in light colors that I didn't like. (I may do some spray painting). Both Contico and Sterilite footlockers are great values, but you trade durability for color with the Contico.
