The lid does not close properly - very disappointed. Purchased 10 and they were all the same.

When you pick the bin with the lid on, the blue latches in the lid are unlocked by your fingers and the lid comes loose or falls off. Seems impossible to avoid doing this.
I immediately took back to store for refund.

These were on sale, so I bought a few since it seemed like a good deal. The lids do not stay closed tight, and it's not because I have them too full. They are not even close to full and when I move them, the lid pops off. Incredibly frustrating. They seem sturdy enough though. I have them stacked in my basement; I just down plan on moving them...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Villaguna Why won't they reveal plastic thickness?
In looking for bins of this size, it seems reasonable to compare the thickness of the plastic, when assessing sturdiness rather than reading reviews that say "it's really sturdy" or "this is cheap". The dimensions are important but the plastic's thickness is really the be-all and end-all, when it comes to strength.
So, I was surprised to see that this bin does not reveal this information on the Home Depot website under "specifications", nor does it give this info on it's website. I called Home Depot and they could not find the information, either; they did, however, contact this manufacturer for me, and got the details quickly.
I can't fault this company alone. In comparing to comparably sized bins at Lowe's, the Hefty 66-Qt also failed to offer up this information. Interesting. It took far longer to get the details from Lowe's/Hefty, but finally I did.
The answers are baffling but here they are, as I was told:
This bin (the review won't let me write company name) is 1/8" thick or 3.17 mm, per Home Depot.
The comparably sized Hefty Tote at Lowe's, per HMS Products (Hefty), because Lowe's gave me incorrect (bizarre off the charts) information, is: 1.5 mm.
I find it hard to believe that the difference is so great. But this is what I was told. Now I am left to go to each store to FEEL the plastic. Not a very scientific method but it's hard for me to believe that this bin is twice the thickness of it's competitor. Also, I found it funny that the Hefty customer service person asked if I was doing a scientific experiment simply because I wanted to know how thick/sturdy her company's totes are. Nope, I just want to store my stuff, stacked, with confidence that my bins won't fall apart . . silly me . .
Off to use my hands . . .I'll try to report back my subjective findings! ; )

The latches don't latch at all, so don't expect any more seal than what gravity (or stacking) will provide. Given the price I should not have been surprised, but the latch serves no purpose other than providing a little color to the box. Still, it is nicer than cardboard. You would need to spend $25-$30 per box for something more sturdy with a seal.

i have to have organization and neatness. sterlite serves my needs. i have six of their 66-quart latching boxes that fit perfectly under my bed. it's a high-rise handmade wooden bed -- a bit bigger than double-mattress side, and the platform just misses the tops of these terrific bins.
three on each side fit neatly under the bed, creating a huge bedroom due to lack of needing any other furniture in the room. i keep winter pullovers in one, tax returns in another, a frequent-visitor stash in another, and the other three store out of season shoes, old documents and barely-used computer peripherals.
sterlite -- THANK YOU for being like-minded and creative.
