The case that holds all 28 little boxes is well made and feels fairly tough. The text printed on it seems durable, and there are round holes under each box that make it easy to pop them out of the container with a finger tip. The compartments stay put pretty well in the container when you open them, which is good.
The individual boxes aren't quite as sturdy, probably about average for this sort of container. They're at least half again larger than the usual 7 sticks of four compartment version. The one flaw in the quality is that the printing on the individual boxes comes off *very* easily. On the other hand, I don't like all that printing on the boxes anyway, so I just scrubbed all the text off with a kitchen sponge.
Each compartment's internal dimensions are 5/8" x 1" x 1.5" tall (15mm x 26mm x 38mm tall) and the storage box with all the boxes inside is 4 1/4" x 9 5/8" x 1 3/4" tall (10.8cm x 24.4cm x 4.4cm tall.) The individual boxes hold 4 to 6 horse pills, or 10-16 smallish capsules, or 60-70 baby aspirin (don't take them all at once kids.)
So, it's very easy to use and seems like it will hold up well, but if you want the text on the boxes to stay nice and pretty, or if you want rounded corners, this one isn't for you. But it's more convenient for what I need than anything else out there, and believe you me, I did too much googling.
I needed a set up with larger compartments since I take plenty of pills, especially when you figure in my supplements (some of which are pretty large). I've also had experience with the pill trays that the four periods per day are one plastic tray, but:
A. Those never seem to stay in their "larger tray" -- which necessitated rubber bands whenever I went anywhere!
B. The individual tray seemed to get bent out of shape, which meant I had pills falling out from time to time.
This stays securely closed and securely in the larger tray. I've also found myself popping one box into my pocket, which would have been more difficult with the other style tray.
Overall, very nice product and woud highly recommend.
I actually customized this one for myself since I only take meds twice a day. I removed all the printing on the boxes and used a label maker to make my own as 2 weeks worth, which wasn't too hard. The lettering on the boxes comes off easily enough. I'd recommend it to people that travel a lot with their medications and often need to take a dose with them when they leave the house. I really like the depth of the boxes so they are big enough to hold several large capsules, but not bulky. I already bought another one for someone else.
1. The text rubs off. I tried lightly coating with clear nail polish, but that comes off, too. A Sharpie rubs off with time as well. The text is not really necessary with 4 color-coordinated by time of day containers. But it would be better if this could be fixed.
2.. Don't forget you can pop each container out for taking, filling or traveling by pushing your fingertip through the hole on the bottom of the tray under the pill container where it says Push Here To Remove. See photo.
3. Tray lays flat or stands horizontally if space is an issue. See photos.
4. I use all 4 daily compartments in my tray so I have purchased 3 more to be able to fill a month's worth.
5. Plastic sides of tray are smooth to use stickers or write name with Sharpie. It comes with one large impractical sticker to list info for 1 pill and 1 pharmacy. I just write my name on the top with a Sharpie. First responders can look at/see through the containers and presume when I've last taken pills, how many and what shapes. If they need to know what kind, they can go through the cabinet or talk to family. See photo.
6. I've dropped the containers and the lids stayed secure. For travel, I always place individual containers inside a baggy for precaution.
7. To take pills, I pop the container out, open the lid and pour pills onto a tiny dish (my pill plate, lol) instead of my hand.
8. If all containers aren't needed, consider re-purposing them.
9. Well worth the price for peace of mind for myself and family.
10. Containers hold 8 large tablets if filled carefully and tamped down. See photo.
BONUS TIP: Keep the clear plastic package the trays are sold inow if you plan on traveling with filled trays. They will secure your trays preventing the lids from popping if the tray should be dropped or jostled and give you a pseudo carrying handle.

This is working much better than trying to remember which pill is to be taken at what time and how many to take. We just fill up the sections once a week. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Jennifer
