The lids on this product are just fine.

Customer review by SOCER

5.0 stars 11/6/2012 by SOCER

I purchased a 12-quart Rubbermaid Roughneck Clear around 2008 when they were marketed under the product name "Latchables". It is the same product, just a different name: the container body is the same, the lid is the same, and the latches on the lid are the same. The product works fine for my needs. I just read the review from RadioFlyer: "Horrible Lids", June 2011. Looking at the submitted photographs, it appears that RadioFlyer was lifting the loaded container from the latched lid itself instead of from the built-in handles on the container body. This is why the lids would pop off. The proper lifting handles are actually located about 1-1/2 inches below the lid latches, on the container body. A little care does need to be exercised to ensure that your thumbs don't slide open the lid latches under the stress of lifting. But, that is easy to get accustomed to. This is a good product that is stackable. And, I have found it to be sturdy.

Horrible lids

Customer review by RadioFlyer

I purchased 20 of these Clear Roughnecks in various sizes after there was water damage in my storage unit and everything had to be repacked. They look nice, the ability to stack them was good, and I was okay with buying clear instead of the normal colored roughneck. The sad thing is, they are nothing like the other roughnecks. I've packed tons of stuff in the regular roughnecks and never had a issue with the container breaking or the lid popping off. Every single lid popped off these Clear Roughnecks as soon as I picked them up to move them. It's almost like the lip on the lid lock isn't deep enough to hold when the container is loaded. It's fine if you've packed light items such as linens in them. But not for packing dishes, glassware, books or other heavier items. Unforunately, I had to find this out after I had all 20 packed with my stuff and was closing them up to re-store them. I'm very disappointed and now have to make two trips back to the store: 1: to buy better containers and repack everything and 2: to take these inferior products back. Guess it wouldn't be that big of deal if it wasn't a 50 mile round trip.

Awesome containers

I own a lot of these containers and have used them for years, both in my home and for my electrical contracting business. Even though I label my containers, it's still very useful to quickly visually determine the contents at a glance.  I think the price tag on these containers is shameful. Not very long ago they were less than half of their current cost. I accept that well designed products justify a premium price tag, but my jaw hit the floor when I went to buy more of these yesterday. In my opinion Rubbermaid has priced themselves out of the market with these bins and sadly, I'm now on the search for an adequate replacement from a competitor. If these totes are big enough sellers that Rubbermaid feels like they can price them so high, then I'm sure competitors are producing similar products.

Great for Dorm Life

Customer review by Trenia

I bought my daughter several of these for her freshman year in college and she has genuinely loved using them. As everyone knows, college dorms are small so she and her roommate had to leave things packed and stacked in boxes. These were great for that because not only did they move well but they were see through. They could easily tell where everything was. After the year was up, they packed well into her compact car for transporting home...and now are taking up space at Mom's house....while she attends a semester of her sophmore year in France. When she returns the boxes will be moved into her new apartment....leaving mom with a well earned craft room where I will indeed be stocking craft items into my own Rubbermaid containers.

Measurements are inaccurate

Customer review by CASB

3.0 stars 4/5/2016 by CASB

I purchased the 19 quart clear bin to store a specific item. I measured what I wanted to store and placed my order. When I received the storage bin, it is not big enough as the measurements pertain to the lid/top not the bottom. I think more specific measurement details would be helpful since I cannot conveniently find any of your products in my area stores.

My favorite storage box!

Cleaning up the storage room recently for the first time in over a decade, I had to do a lot of guesswork as to what was inside each one. That's when Roughneck Clear became my favorite boxes in the room. It was so easy to tell what was inside -- I could go, "Ok, that's the box with all the toys" and move on without having to open it to check like many of the other boxes (which I ended having to go back and check again when I forgot. :P ) Roughneck Clear makes it so easy, and it's durable too . . my childhood toys were in as good a condition as they were in the 80s. :)

We went camping this weekend and has a couple totes for all our stuff. One was A Rubbermaid Roughneck clear the other cheap one. After we loaded up and got on the road. My Husband went around a corner and that was when we realized that the Tailgate was not compleatly closed and flew open. Both totes went flying out along with much other stuff. The cheap tote was destroyed, and had to put in Plastic bags, the Roughneck had some scrapes and dirt but was still intact. Thank Rubbermaid. I am out the door to buy another Roughneck to hold the the other camping gear!

Storage for small toys

I bought several of these containers because I was getting sick of having to replace a cheaper version. I liked the fact that they had a warranty and were deemed unbreakable. I have had them for about three months and today my three year old cracked the clear plastic on the side. The hassle of digging for the receipt from three months ago and filing a claim hardly seems worth it effort. Very disappointed...

I LOVE Rubbermaid Roughneck clear storage containers! They make seeing what's inside EASY! That saves me time because I don't have to open each one to find what I'm looking for. I LOVE that the lids latch! That means that I never have to worry about the lid popping open and dumping everything on my head when I am getting the container down from a top shelf. The durability and STACK-ability make the most of every inch of storage space that I have. I think they are TOTE-ally TERRIFIC!

Much smaller than stated dimensions

Much smaller than the specified dimensions. I bought 4 of these online for a specific storage need that requires a certain size. The largest exterior dimensions of the container (including the lid & lip) are smaller than the stated size. Needless to say the items I want to store don't come close to fitting in the containers. You would think that the l x w x h for storage containers would be an interior dimension?

corraling closet clutter

Customer review by Neat

After moving into our home we needed to efficiently store kids childhood toys - Barbie/He-Man, micromachines and other smaller goodies. These containers worked great to corral the clutter. They make efficient use of space, fit on closet shelves and clear design allow for visibility as to contents of each container. I was so happy with the results I purchased them for storage use in the linen closet.

I have several of these in 4 different sizes. I use mine to pack contents of my travel trailer when I plan to leave it vacant for an extended period. The clear view makes it so convenient when unpacking or if I need something out of them while they are stored in my garage at home. I have had them about 3 years now and they still look brand new. No discoloration or broken lids or hinges.

I have many storage containers around my house, but this purchase was by far the best for storage. I have always had a problem with lids cracking in half or not quite fitting properly. These are great. No signs of breakage yet, even when I stack them on top of each other. I like the clear because you can see at a glance what is inside, and grab the right container the first time.

I am a Teacher,wife, mother and grandmother How does anyone survive without this product. Years of accumulating have made it necessary to organize with storage bins. Label makers only go so far! Seeing what you need in a rubber maid tote is incredibly helpful when you have ten storage bins of Christmas decorations or ten storage boxes of books. Thanks Rubbermaid!!

The worst lids even made

Customer review by CaroW

Like in a previous review, the lids are completely useless on these containers. They always come right off when you put anything in the container, which renders the container essentially useless for storing things. I can't believe I paid for these and now I can't return them for a more durable and useful product.

There is so much you can fit into these great totes. Shoes, clothing, books. I have had my tote between two apartments and not yet have they faltered. I love Rubbermaid and I will continue to buy Rubbermaid for years and years to come. Thank you for providing such great products.

Very durable I can fill this tote completely, and it is strong enough to move with the handles! Even with a full tote of clothes. The lid fits and snaps securely in place I recommend this product. It is worth the money!

I love my clear Rubbermaid storage boxes because I can see what's inside without having to use a label. Rubbermaid is better than others and the ones that I have bought have not cracked or broken.
