Rubbermaid Deck Box With Seat
Consumer’s Digest awarded the Rubbermaid Deck Box With Seat a Best Buy award in September 2009, stating “This unit delivers the most storage capacity of any deck box and includes the best warranty of any horizontal shed that we found. A spring hinge keeps the lid from slamming shut–a great feature that’s unique at this price.” Our 130 gallon Lifetime deck box has plenty of room to store all the items that you want to keep in a convenient outdoor location and comes with a strong, lockable, spring-hinged lid which opens to more than 90 degrees for easy access. The versatile design of the Lifetime deck box even allows you to install interior dividers or shelving. This weather-resistant Lifetime deck box is built to withstand the elements with UV-protected high -density polyethylene (HDPE) construction and a water-resistant seal to keep your storage items safe and dry. A great solution for your outdoor storage needs!
The Rubbermaid Deck Box With Seat last summer and have been extremely pleased so I decided to write a review. I bought this to replace a Rubbermaid model that warped and would not stay together. Assembly of this product was relatively smooth. There is hardware included to hold the storage box together so it took a bit longer than my last box, maybe 20 minutes or so. The highlights of this unit are the hardware that I mentioned has kept the box sturdy and water tight. The shock hinges hold the lid open while you are getting your things and keep the lid from smashing little fingers. The deck box allows for a padlock to secure the storage. Lastly but most important, IT IS HUGE! I believe it is 130 gallons which I believe is one of the biggest out there.
I have Rubbermaid Deck Box With Seat to put on our dock at a marina to hold overflow boating stuff — extra life vests, etc. It was delivered right to the marina and was very easy to assemble. The price came in at about half what a true “Rubbermaid Deck Box With Seat” box would have cost. Plus the thing is huge and holds quite a lot of stuff. Fantastic product.
I have a Rubbermaid Deck Box With Seat, which is very high quality so I decided to give them another shot when looking for a deck box. I was not disappointed, it feels much more durable than some of the other brands such as Rubbermade. The box is huge and will fit a lot of backyard toys. The lid hinges work well and keep the lid from slamming shut. Assembly was pretty straight forward and took me about an hour. The one thing that I’d recommend is installing the deck lid bar (the last step) prior to installing the lid. Doing this after the lid had been installed made it much more challenging as you have attach the screws vertically into a movable lid.
All-in-all I’m very pleased with this Rubbermaid Deck Box With Seat and with the Lifetime brand in general; it is nice to get what you pay for.
