Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dannyboy Durable, strong, seals well
Like most reviews for these my experiences have been positive. These and the large 54 gallon roughneck are the best bins I have used(I am a bit of a bin freak so I have a good variety). They stack well, last forever and the way the lid sits provides the best seal. I have a few that have done probably 150,000 miles in my truck bed which are still going strong and they get tossed around quite a bit. They stay pliable in the cold and have not cracked down to -5.
One huge plus for is that the blue tarp reusable bags that you get at Ikea fit over these things like a glove. While the bags are not seam sealed, the combo of the good seal of the lid and the Ikea bag have proven to be to watertight in my truck bed even in heavy rain for over 300 miles.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bmeisen Great product and outstanding Home Depot experience
I bought 10 sets (tote+lid) of these 18-gallon Rubbermaid totes on sale at Home Depot because of their outstanding durability in a hot attic (other cheaper brands had cracked their lids). When I got home, my wife found that the new lids fit two other Rubbermaid totes (10 gal and 18 gal) that we had filled long ago but were missing the tops. She snapped up 2 lids from the batch of ten totes that I had brought home and put them on the old totes to seal them.
I tried to buy some replacement lids online but found that you had to buy them in packs of 10 and the unit cost was more expensive than what I paid for a full 18-gallon tote at Home Depot. I used chat on the Home Depot website to ask for a price on just a lid and the chat person said that they didn't have a price and suggested that I visit my local Home Depot and ask the manager of the storage container department if he could sell me two lids.
I was shocked when the Home Depot storage department manager said that he couldn't sell them to me….but he gave me 2 lids and walked me out to the store exit. On the way, he explained that many people buy the totes but forget (or don't care about) the lids so they always have extra.
Kudos to Home Depot for such a customer-friendly response! Lowes is closer to where I live but Home Depot will now get more of my business!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Iamemployed great item with great pickup
We ordered these from your store because the price was so much better than our other searches found. Plus, we ordered so that we could just load up when we arrived to get them, and they were neatly stacked, marked and ready to put into our vehicle. Cannot say too many fabulous things about the item, the price and the service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AirMax25 Rubbermaid Quality
I purchased this storage box to use as a litter box. My cat is "messy" and I needed something with full coverage. I cut out a hole for entry. The quality of the rubbermaid storage box felt strong and the handles were secure (which i need when lifting this to change litter).The lid isn't difficult to lock on nor to get off. Once locked on, it does feel secure. When I saw how nice these were, part of me didn't want to cut a hole in them and could see many other purposes for them.

I've been using the 10 gallon ones for years. They have never failed me. I trust them completely. I only wish they were made in more colors, such as red & black.
(they used to make red a long time ago)

I shipped a motorcycle engine (95 lbs.) in one of these. put a board in the bottom and drilled holes to bolt up the top to the bottom and took it to greyhound that way. made it safely cross country. If it's strong enough for that it can do any household storage job I could ask.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LS Ford Lids
I found after they arrived they were the wrong size. BUt the reason for the low mark is that the lids don't connect and stay in place like they should. They are not tight and thus will not keep things out I don't want in.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by woodyk Wonderful Containers, But.....
I use these for many things, they are the perfect size for me. But, they do not hold up to sunlight! I wish they were made in BLACK. I have some other brands that are black, and they last forever outside, but these are only good for a few months in the sun, then they start cracking. I have bought at least 20 of these in the past three years. They are a perfect fit to cover a Honda 2000 generator, by the way!
