    I like this box. It was easy to assemble within a few minutes. There are optional accessories to divide the inside, but none are included with this box. The assembled box is large enough to fit standard-sized garden tools, such as rakes, hoes, etc.

    It has been in my back yard, under my second-story porch for the two months now. I put all my lawn-care equipment (sprayers, insecticides, tools, etc.) in it. None of them has gotten wet despite a few very heavy downpours. There is a place on the handle to apply a lock if you so choose.

    It is not “airtight” so I imagined insects might make their way inside, but so far that hasn’t happened. Maybe because I don’t keep any food in it, or maybe the platic smell is a repellant.

    It is definitely sturdy enough to sit on.

    You can’t push this box flush with a wall because it needs about three inches of clearance behind it to allow for opening it without scrating the rear of the top.

    All in all, a good purchase. Amazon’s price is also perfect. I compared to my local Lowes, and Amazon’s price is better – and with free shipping and no tax. Can’t beat that!

    I use this box as a dock box at my marina. Huge space inside and only a fraction of the cost of “real” fiberglass dock boxes.
    Very easy to assemble. Took only 5 minutes since all pieces snap together (there are only 6 pieces total). Sturdy and weahther proof.
    One thing is unfortunate. RubberMaid used to include one devider but for some reason does not do this anymore.
