Disadvantages

The hinges are not made of stainless steel and have a tendency to rust in humid and wet weather. As the years go by the rusty hinge can break off. The warranty does not cover parts that deteriorate due to rust and other factors that are caused by the weather.

The cover also becomes deformed when heat is intense and causes a gap between the lid and the body; the seal becomes insecure. The box only closes securely if it is used with a padlock. Without it, the product’s lid remains open and is easy enough for children to lift. The lid has to be constantly checked to make sure that it is closed shut.

Verdict

The Lifetime Extra Large Box is versatile and can be used as storage and as a bench. The storage capacity is large at 130 gallons, and can fit equipment and gardening tools. The material of the Lifetime Extra Large Box is HDPE which allows the box to withstand heat, rain, and snow. The lid closes shut with a padlock and the hinges hold well. The product has a long service life but the hinges will rust after a couple of years. The manufacturer offers a warranty but it does not cover replacement of corroded hinges.
