      Q:Which box is compatible for hanging letter size files
      by|Dec 18, 2022

      Answer This Question

      A:  This size would work perfectly well for hanging file folders. Another good option would be the Sterlite 30 qt latch storage box. The 64 qt latching one could also work, but all of these may need a file folder hanging frame to work effectively. 

      by|Jan 2, 2023

        A:  Hi Lizzie, as of 12/19/2022 the Home Depot offers the Sterilite Portable File Box which accommodates hanging file folders.

          Q:Is the bottom completely flat? wondering if I can use this as a DIY Litterbox. It cannot have any small indentations or ridges in the bottom.

          A:  This size, in my opinion, is to big/tall to use as a litter box. You probably need one no more than 4-6 inches tall, which we've used in the past. Hope this helps!

            A:  I THINK ITS REALLY TALL FOR A LITTER BOX BUT AS TO RIDGES ON THE BOTTOM .. I DON'T BELIEVE SO. MINE ARE ALREADY PACKED AND STORED..

            by|Sep 2, 2020

              A:  Thank you for your question. The Sterilite 56 Qt Storage Box is not completely flat and does have an indentation for stacking purposes. If you are looking for a kitty litter pan we do have a great one available called our Large Cat Little Pan. If you go to our website and click the “Where to Buy” button, this will direct you to the retailer options

                  Disappointed!
                  I have used Sterilite storage boxes for 15+ years in my closets, garage, and vacation home. I'm disappointed that the quality over the years has taken a nose dive. I can never understand why manufacturers keep making their products cheaper and more disposable. Rather than having a storage box last a very long time, the new style is definitely a move in the wrong direction. The shape is more tapered with a smaller footprint at the bottom. The lids are incredibly weak and limits the stacking ability which is a main reason people buy these boxes. I'd love to know why Sterilite made a change for the worse. Wish they'd make a premium line. For people like myself that wants a quality item it's getting harder and harder to find. Ugh

                    Firm lid cover. Good for organizing a few things. Package for toys and small stuff.

                      The sterlite56qt storage box was great. I had to organize my cabinet underneath the kitchen sink and it fit perfectly. Everything I needed to storage fit in the storage box.

                      The right size and see-through for a cat litter pan
                      My need was perhaps a bit unusual. I used this for a cat litter pan. My cat kept peeing over the edge of her 5" high litter pan, so I bought this box, cut out the middle of one end so that my cat could step in, and filled it with a few inches of litter. She adapted quickly, and the 12" side caught her pee which could be easily wiped off. I didn't need the lid but might find another use for it.

                      Tough and easy to use
                      This is my go-to storage for kids supplies / crafts / coloring books. See through, firm seal, easy to shove away, easy to wipe down. Only 4 stars because after a few years, the lid has warped. But it sees a lot of use from little hands who aren't that careful with it.

                        Dual use- as storage and as sneeze guard
                        We use our three Sterlite storage bins as sneeze guard when family comes over for dinner. Since we don’t live together, it is difficult to be sure that none of us is asymptomatic. We can chat at our back yard and enjoy family together. See sample set up. Here I have set up for 2 but we usually use 3 Sterlite bins.

                          Great Container, Terrible Lid
                          I purchased several 56 Qt storage containers for which I primarily use to store clothing.  I move quite a bit, so they are better than moving boxes and the various color lids help to easily identify which container I need. My disappointment is that the lids are not as sturdy as the containers themselves, they lose their shape and they crack easily.   Not only that, but replacement lids are unavailable.  After not being able to find them in the stores, I checked the website with no success.  I don't like the fact that you have to buy a whole new container just to get a new lid. Surely there has to be a better solution to getting replacement lids or better yet making a better quality like Hefty or Rubbermaid. I like the storage containers, but I don't like that replacement lids are not available.

                          Thank you for reviewing the Sterilite 56 Qt Storage Box. We regret the inconvenience experienced with the lids. Unfortunately, Sterilite does not manufacture extra lid. We plan our production one bottom, to one lid. We appreciate you took the time to pass this feedback to us,
