This bin has met the expectations for my project graciously. Lately, I have used carboard boxes to store winter and summer clothing in my parents garage. I expected to use three or four more bins at 35 gallons, but, I was wrong! thankfully. The large bins came together and the locking mechanism is nice. They are all plastic and non-warped during shipping so it made the entire project a breeze. I stored roughly 600 pieces of garments across three bins, then, I started to use smaller bins for other garments of clothing I couldn't fit into these bins for organization purposes. I definitely plan on buying at least eight more to complete a few more storage projects around the house, these are an excellent value for the savings per bin. If you do the math, these 35 gallon bins are 11.75 each and store 140lbs worth of stuff! The insides were nice, but, I wouldn't trust anything other than shoes, clothing and light weight products in these bins. Definitely not a storage bins for heavy parts such as tools or bolts and things. All in all, I was very pleased with my purchase, I completed my project with room to spare and enough to use some of the other bins I had laying around in the garage. Definite buy!
