Flimsy and Expensive
on September 9, 2015
This is a great looking box. It looks like something that would be made by Pelican. It's got 4 latches and is a manageable size. Once mine arrived I was immediately surprised at how light weight it was. Too light. The plastic is so thin that it almost makes it unusable for anything more than a few very light weight things. When you open the lid it flops open. Literally. It's like a wet noodle. The sides flex if you touch them. I had purchased this to put all my chainsaw gear in. It worked, size wise, but as soon as it was left in the back of my truck it stared warping in the sun (something I've seen other reviewers complain about). The wheels are basically useless because there is no handle, so in order to use the wheels you have to just hold one end of the trunk (which means someone of average height will be stooped over). If you are only 4 feet tall, or have very long arms, the wheel feature will probably work for you.
There are many other options for trunks this size that are much higher quality. After trying to use it for a while I gave up. It's just too weak. I ended up going with a Husky 25 gallon from Home depot (also available here on Amazon--although significantly more expensive than buying at the Home Depot store). If it had only been 20 bucks I wouldn't have been so disappointed. As it stands a cardboard box would have been more sturdy and a lot less money.
