A pull-down side that allows access into the bin's contents and complete visibility into the bin is brilliant. Now the bins can be stacked up and the items in the bottom can be gotten to with ease. The pull-down side has a lip that catches on the top so it will stay closed, but it's easy to open. The top lid is still removable, which makes it easy to load. Because the bin contents are visible, it's easier to remember what is in the bins - although a category label is still a good thing to add. These bins are perfect for storing the occasionally accessed item. I've used them in large storage closets to help seasonal decorating items, craft supplies, personal mementos, and the "spring-cleaning" supplies. I've used them in garages to store flowerpots, garden chemicals (fertilizer, insecticide, herbicide, etc), and garden decorations (gnomes anyone?). They are wonderful for storing camping supplies. Seasonal clothes storage is simplified since a sweater can be retrieved easily when the temperature dips during the spring. All in all, the All-Access bin is useful, tough and it makes getting to your stuff easy.
