Cons: Difficult to Open, Poor Construction, Poor Design

Best Uses: Toddlers, Kitchen/Bathroom, Accident Prevention

I was so excited when I saw this item was on weekly special so I ordered two, as I had previously had my eye on it to help keep my curious toddler out of harm's way. Unfortunately, upon receipt, one of my two boxes was cracked in the bottom corner. I almost didn't exchange it as I didn't want the hassle of repackaging it, but I worried cleaner chemicals would leak out and defeat the purpose of the storage box. Even more unfortunate was that the replacement for the broken item was ALSO broken. This time, it was the safety latch which was broken. Upon receiving a second broken item, I just returned it. It appears the shipment packaging was not protecting this item appropriately from damage caused in the mail. That being said, I realized that if I accidentally dropped this box, it could easily crack or the latch could break. I did keep the original unbroken item and, in general, I'm happy with it - though the latch is a bit clunky and sometimes I struggle getting it open. If I hadn't gotten this item for 50% off, I'd be really disappointed.
