I can't get a picture on with this phone sorry.

These are as awful as the other Keter products unfortunately.
Returning my 2nd one today (1st one was chipped and warped, 2nd one just warped). When I was in store to get the first replacement, the guy brought 3 back. Every one had a major chip/crack!
The problem is they seem to be the only mass market supplier of these and other brands are just Keter builds, unless anyone can suggest a decent one at a reasonable price?

If you've any cracked or broken parts then Keter will send you replacements free without question....

I got 3 from ebay last year for £25 no issues, I got them for the loft to get shut of different boxes and keep stuff dust free. They fit through the hatch and then slot together. Storing xmas gear was easy in January.

These are pretty decent at this price. Got a couple great for kids bits and bobs.

saw someone get one yesterday. looked decent size.

Not too bad, however the top lid clicks on and after a couple years it usually breaks. Plastic and cold weather and that.

Got one also not bad... had it few years and is now being held together by gorilla tape lol....good boxes i keep ours at back door for all the kids wellies and trainers etc..

Not a bad idea for the loft or garage but useless for the garden tried a few different ones and always the same result,few months in plastic becomes warped lid wont fully close leaks water like mad,wouldnt put anything half decent in it

At least you got a few months!! Guy in store was shocked at how bad they were

Had one for a few years. It never did close properly and in no way was waterproof but still great for keeping garden bits & pieces tidy and out of sight

Had one of these for last 12 months in the garden. Not problem with it at all, not cracks or warped plastic, no water ingress at all.

Reserved- thanks.

bought a couple of different ones off tesco the other day, main reason is colour. I have one this colour already and they get pretty dirty pretty quickly....

Great for storage inside, but outside I dont think they're robust enough, you'd be better off with a custom made wooden one. I have a similar one where I had to build a wooden frame inside it so it didn't break apart, can't image this one is any different.

No good for outside they leak

I've had no issues with Keter. Had one shed in garden for several years now which has survived years of wind and rain, and my latest 8x8 shed (also Keter) much newer but still solid. Simple to put together and no cracks or warps.

Been after one if these cheap for ages, heading to homebase tomorrow for wood preservative (buy one get one half price)

Top tip for Homebase:

They do till spit vouchers if you're buying a few things lob the cheap bits thru first and see if you get a voucher, did this last time got a £3 off £30 spend then went bk in & bought the more expensive bits.

Buy one get one half price
15% extra off this weekend
£3 off till spit

Bargain!

like most of this stuff it needs to be on a level base and most people plonk them onto bumpy unlevel ground and wonder why they dont shut properly.

Obviously not big enough to fit all your stuff in. I mean, just look at the image they're using ;-)

Had a few of these Keter boxes. Unless you're lucky, expect to replace them every few years. Mine cracked, and never stopped leaking. Complete rubbish as far as I'm concerned since they can't be repaired, just replaced.
I would suggest saving your money and going for timber boxes which with occasional creosote and repairs will last 10+ years.

put a plastic cover over it. Sorted.

Agree that you need to put these on a solid footing - deck or patio. Compared to many of the cheap-and-nasty boxes you can get around the place I've always found Keter to be good quality and to last well.

Just picked one up from local store, much bigger than expected, we already have one of another make and this one seems much better quality and larger, time will tell I suppose. On first impression, good price and pleased with it.

The bigger stuff is much better quality (IMHO). I have a Store it xl and it is fine, but this is cheap tat, unfortunately.

I hear ya. Will avoid this then! cheers.

Others here seem to find it ok, but if you do a bit of digging (pardon the pun!) their lower end stuff just is that. Says a lot that someone from Keter allegedly said they don't keep spares for their low end products

I have to disagree with some people on this thread. I've had one for these for nearly 3 years now. Granted, it did come with a crack to a side panel which was replaced quickly by Keter by contacting Customer Support. It's been water tight throughout and stores the lawn mower, strimmer and a few other bits and bobs. I stay in Scotland so probably will never get warped due to high temperatures/ direct sunlight

thanks

Aside from the odd cm here and there, does this differ much from the Keter Hollywood that's knocking around for £26 ?

thats because they know how badly manufactured all of their products. Will never buy keter.

so you buy a plastic storage to store things in which is not fit for purpose and then you buy another plastic cover to cover it up to make it fit for purpose? World we live in hey !!

The one I had got taken over by ants. I ended up having to pay them rent to store my lawnmower. Cold from me.

Just need a garden now.

These things not good for storing things in a damp garage, to keep stuff dry and spider proof?

really rubbish.

can easily break

Heat for price.

I've got about 4 of these. Great, but they sure do come apart after a couple of years.

Any alternatives? I'd love something similar just not this brand. Happy to pay a bit more

I would be tempted to fill it with compost and plant some herbs in it
