LOVE THIS STORAGE!
This storage tote is the perfect size! We tend to overload bigger totes, which makes it difficult to get them on and off shelves. The 17 gallon totes are manageable no matter what we put in them! They’re also tough enough for our use, and the locking lid is critical for keeping critters out of our stuff! We’re slowly replacing all our other storage totes with these.

Lid cracked after a month
They say they are made for stacking but if you do the lid will crack. Tried to find replacement lid but was told they aren't sold separately. Not going to waste another $30.

      Great storage
      So I recently purchased this storage container to put the ice melt I purchased in ti keep it dry and to make it easier to scoop out of. This container works well and the cover snaps on tight. I would definitely recommend this.

        Good value
        I’ve purchased over 100 of these bins 27 gallons and bigger for all of our storage needs. I like that the lids are recessed into the storage bin and the handles click into place. I use them for... -We haul our own trash to the dump (I use 2 of the largest sizes dedicated for this task and I fit 8 bags of trash in each one). -We have one of the largest sizes for our tractor implements... it keeps them clean. -We have (64) of them at 27 gallon size for dry food and household supplies storage. They add an extra layer of protection because of the heavy duty plastic and recessed lids. -We have (48) of them for 27 gallon size and bigger for Holiday Decor storage. We decorate several outbuildings gates and a house for Christmas and the storage needed is insane. These are perfect. These are the only bins we buy because they stack very well, are heavy duty and they have the recessed lid that is very important for a lot of needs.

            HDX storage tote.
            These things are absolute trash! I bought 4 and they all have cracked or broken completely. I used them in my van so no direct sunlight. If you stack them in a corner and never use them they might be okay.

              Great to catch on sale. The lids fit nicely and the boxes can be stacked. Sides seem firm. The bottom might be a little thin if you have something heavy in the middle that isn’t wide enough to spread the weight out. These are great to organize a garage.

                102L Strong Box Tote in Black/Yellow
                No leaks during outdoor use. The top fits, locks into place perfectly and easily unlocks. The plastic body is strong and heavy duty. And its weight is reasonable.

                The 17 Gallon HDX Tough Tote sold by the Home Depot is a very good product. It is sturdy stackable and locks into place.the black color hides any marks that may occur moving them around. I think it’s a better tote sold by other companies because of the great engineering tight tolerance and durability of the material it is made of. I would highly recommend this product to anyone in need of a a medium sized tote.

                My wife is a quilter and has an ever growing stash of fabric. Well, keeping it stored and separated by colors, type of fabric and so on was getting harder. It looks like the HDX 17 Gallon tough tote is the answer to this dilemma. The tote is well made with a rigid material, unlike the soft sided totes we have tried in the past. The soft totes just did not hold up. The tote is also made to be stackable with the lid being designed to keep the top bin from sliding off. The lid fits securely and you can also lock it if necessary. We will definitely be getting more totes. Making it possible for my wife to add to her stash of fabric...... Yay !!!!!!!!!

                This 17 gallon tough storage tote with red lid meets the test. It is well constructed and will handle any storage job from general storage needs to extreme storage joibs. This 17 gallon container measures 21L x 15W x 16 deep. The lid fits securely on the container. There are slots on this model which make it lockable and secure. The slots can also be used for tie downs making transportation very easy. There are also two larger sizes of ths HDX storage tote if the 17 gallon is not large enough for your needs. This product is made in the US.

                This storage box, the HDX 17 Gallon tough storage tote with red lid, is one of the best storage boxes I’ve ever used. It is tough, it looks great, and you can put more into than would appear when you look at it. The main attraction for me is the incomparable lid cover. As with other bins, you don’t have to use both handles to open it, which is frustrating and time consuming. This lid opens up so easily by just raising one handle. You will notice the difference immediately. I love it.

                I got this HDX 17 gallon tough storage tote red and black to store food grade pellet for my pellet grill and smoker. I am able to put one 30 lb bag plus two 20 lb unopened bags of pellet at once and still put the cover on. I plan on keeping them on the deck under an awning I think they should be rainproof but a little moisture may still get in I'll leave the pellet in bags just in case I'll likely buy a couple more.

                We have a variety of storage totes in our basement. Unfortunately, most of them did not hold up well. It seems that a lot of the totes do not support any weight on them or are so flimsy that any heavy items stored inside tend to push the sides out of shape. We have been changing out all those inferior totes to the HDX totes. First off, you can stack a number of them without any distortion or collapse. The shape of the base allows for more items to be stored in each tote. The cover securely snaps into place keeping any insects or critters out.

                I used to LOVE these bins. I've probably bought 100+ over the years. However, something changed in the last few months since I last bought some. The molding design of the black part has changed slightly but worst of all is THEY ARE BRITTLE. This is not the same plastic that has been used on these bins for years. I am able to crack them to pieces, while empty, using my thumb and index finger. So disappointed. These are going right back to the store.

                  Extremely large, can be used to store away things like toys, holiday decorations or seasonal clothing items. I'm thinking about getting a second to store my artificial Christmas tree (yes it will fit!). Given its size, I would not recommend heavier items if you ever need to pick it up and move it. I also appreciate that it can be easily stacked with other storage totes. The only negative is the lid is not easy to open or shut, but it does fit securely once on.

                  I needed a tote for traveling to the lake and the beach in our minivan and truck. I wanted a tote that I could add more later if we wanted to stack them, that was tough enough to be in the back of the truck, and would not be too large inside the van. I also got a 27 gallon tote and included a comparison picture below. This tote is a very good size for my use, seems to be very sturdy, and will hold a good amount of items for our travels.

                  The HDX 17-gallon Tough Tote is made in the USA and according to the product description the base is made from recycled polypropylene. The slots around the edges are great for bungie cords, pad locks, or zip ties. The top snaps on for a secure fit. Well hand and built withstand lots of use. I really like the size of the 17-gallon totes as they are easy to get in/out of doors and up/down ladders.

                  This is a great medium-sized tote in distinctive red and black. I have a few smaller ones from HDX in the same color scheme but needed a larger one to handle some extra things I wanted to store. The pictures show the length, width, and depth. I also took a picture that show that 15 rolls of toilet tissue would easily fit within the tote with a little room to spare. The tote is very well constructed, is rugged, and is sturdy. Should last for many years to come in my storage area.

                  The HDX 17 Gallon tough storage tote with red lid is a nice addition to our garage. It is a lightweight tote and easy to carry around. There are slots in the top of the tote where the lid can be locked down to the container which is a very nice feature you don't see on a lot of totes.. The tote has a nice look to it and I would recommend this product

                  I might be a little unconventional about using a storage tote to keep my kids hockey training gear in one place but nothing is unconventional about a great storage tote for keeping your backyard organized and clean. When I saw the size of the HDX 55 GAL. TOUGH STORAGE TOTE (HDX which is home depots store brand is absolutely awesome in quality and a fraction of the price of other name brand household companies. This beast is 18x42x19 deep and gives you more than enough space. I'm able to keep all my kids hockey training gear neatly stored away and my backyard tidy and presentable incase guests stop by. I love the size, sturdiness and ability to zip tie or lock the lid down and if I have to spray clean the dust and dirt off I know after a quick rinse the inside will still stay dry. It can be quite cumbersome to move while full but they do have other options with wheels at a hefty price. Other than that this is exactly what I'm looking for and would recommend to anyone with storage needs.

                  This 55 gallon storage tote is huge! After taking it out of the box, I could feel how sturdy this container is. It is big enough to store just about anything. The lid snaps on very tightly, took me a minute to open it. But it gives me confidence and peace of mind that whatever I store inside, will be protected. i would definitely purchase a few more, as it can also be stackable.

                  Need a large sturdy tote to store your stuff, this 55 gallon tote can work for you. It is 21.3"W x 45.8"L x 19.5H, that is stackable and lockable. The snap on lid is a little hard to open, but that means that the top is secure. This product is made in the USA. The lid color is vibrant, and the material used to make this tote is heavy duty. I would suggest filling it after you have placed it where you want to place it, will be heavy when filled.
