Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by netman86 Not good anymore
A few years ago I bought about 30 of these over the course of a summer, as I had built custom shelving and printed big labels to organize my various projects and generally get my life in order (well, somewhat in order anyway!)
Near the end of the summer, they switched the same UPC barcode to a similar product- made in usa. The new ones do not stack with the old ones, and are made of a thinner plastic. The lids are not reinforced as much, and the hinges tend to break. The old ones were made in canada.
I find myself looking for more of these- but wont buy the ones the depot sells anymore. These cost 10 a pop- but are worth maybe 5. The old ones were easily worth 8 or 9.

These totes are absolutely not commercial grade. I wouldn't stack them more than 3 or 4 high depending on the weight of the items inside. I had one split down the corner and another started bulging with less than 25 pounds on top of it.
If your looking for totes similar to what retailers ship items in, these are not it. Search for "Distribution Tote with hinged lid" and expect to spend around $20 each. THOSE are commercial grade. You can store 100 pounds in each and stack them 4 high.
If you plan on storing light items and going 1 or 2 high, these will probably work ok for you, but you can get totes for $5-6 for that purpose.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by aroyals Not commercial but fine for home use
I would have given this four stars if it wasn't advertised as commercial grade, because it is not. But for general storage in your garage this is just fine. We have one full of Christmas ornaments and I love that the lid is attached and they stack easily and are a nice size. The bigger totes can get too heavy when I fill them up, so this is a nice size for me to be able to lift up onto the garage storage. I feel that there are other totes similar in size though for a little less. I would be happier with the price if it was really commercial grade.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by Mark Not 'commercial' grade
The "commercial" description of the item is not really applicable. It is not a heavy duty type of container as the plastic durability is not that tough. I had planned to use a bunch of these to store and lug tools, paint cans etc., which can still be done but I don't expect the container to last long. If you need a tote that will store things like Christmas decorations, this is fine. Or, if you do not plan on moving/transporting it around a lot, obviously it will hold up better. You have to be careful stacking things on the closed lid, as heavy objects may cause the flip top to sag.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by nickb These are NOT as good as the ones made by Monoflo
I have some made by Monoflo that are very good. Home Depot has replaced those with these, which are very poorly made and don't stay closed. The Monoflo boxes are available on Amazon, but shipping doubles the price. Home Depot used to carry quality stuff, but this is a step backward.
