Works well but I used Velcro to attach it to the post because I wanted to keep water out by not drilling holes. The length of the Velcro furnished was not enough, the first building inspection I had the inspector pulled it off the post. Fortunately I had some extra left over from another project. It has been in the Florida weather for two months now and is still watertight.

I suspect the reason this item is "online only" is because it is so flimsy and few would choose it over an alternative unless it cost much less. (Which it does.) It appears intended to be considered disposable and I doubt it will last long in Florida sunshine. Although it is attractive, the plastic is little better than a Ziploc food container. The attachment screws seem to be an afterthought since they cannot be used without pulling the unit apart, leaving you to rely on velcro strips.

I hate giving a negative review but I feel I have to warn those of you considering this item for purchase. Now I know why this is an online buy only. If I had seen it beforehand I would never have bothered. To sum it up - poorly constructed and really flimsy. I took it out of the box - checked it over, put it back in the packaging and returned it. That bad. There are a number of contractor's clip boards out there - close to the same price and a much better value.

The plan space was not large enough. I would not recommend this to a fellow home builder.

A lot more flimsy than I expected for the price. HD did have the best price on this item compared to other online sellers; the product itself is the problem

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Eric Works fine but pricey for a couple pieces of plastic
I needed an inexpensive permit box. If I'd known this was just a couple cheap pieces of plastic I wouldn't have paid so much for it. Now I understand why the other Doc-Box products are so pricey. It will work, and because as a one-off it's easy to spend too much money for things, I'll just use it. But would never buy another one.

For $25 I thought it would be hard clear plastic with a hinged cover, this is more like a throwaway sandwich container.

You get what you pay for, almost. I had hoped for a document protector that would stand up to plenty of use. This item is quite wimpy. Very light-weight plastic that I expect will fail within a year. We'll see what the sun does to it, but I don't think it will keep the rain and dust out.
