Customer Reviews of Lifetime Deluxe 130-gallon Deck Storage Box
We bought this storage box to replace one damaged in a storm. We were looking for a storage box that was heavier and better made than what we found in the local stores. This box is a heavier plastic which should help it withstand the wind. It takes a little longer to put together with the screws and the hinges, but that contributes to the durability and safety of this storage box.
Purchased it because of the piston hinges11/22/2012
Most of these boxes have plain hinges with a plastic strap to keep the top at 90 degrees. The strap breaks and then you need to substitute string or cord. Worse is since there is nothing holding it up other than its own weight leaning back, if you have a child going in the box and a strong breeze comes along it can slam on tiny hands not that adult hands or wrists like it any better. With the pistons holding this up, its easier for little ones to open and keep open.
purchased the Lifetime Deck Box last summer and have been extremely pleased so I decided to write a review. I bought this to replace a Rubbermaid model that warped and would not stay together. Assembly of this product was relatively smooth. There is hardware included to hold the storage box together so it took a bit longer than my last box, maybe 20 minutes or so. The highlights of this unit are the hardware that I mentioned has kept the box sturdy and water tight. The shock hinges hold the lid open while you are getting your things and keep the lid from smashing little fingers. The deck box allows for a padlock to secure the storage. Lastly but most important, IT IS HUGE! I believe it is 130 gallons which I believe is one of the biggest out there.
