This laundry hamper is exactly what my family of five and I were looking for for our large volume laundry room - and we were excited to see that Overstock was carrying it! It arrived a little later than the estimated delivery time quoted on the website in a large flat box. Initially we thought we had made a mistake purchasing this and would have to send it back. Assembly was challenging because the instructions are not complete nor do they provide good pictures to help guide the process. We have seen reviews on this and similar products note that the holes do not line up allowing for the top and bottom supports to attach to the side rails. We thought this was the case with ours too but there is a "trick" that the instructions do not explain. You MUST attach the top horizontal piece to the side rails BEFORE you attach the bottom piece. Then when attaching the bottom horizontal shelf-like support you may have to pull the sides of the vertical pieces in to line the screw holes up - which really requires two people to accomplish. A hex wrench is included - no additional tools required As far as durability, the liner, metal construction, and industrial wheels all seem very rugged. The liner is definitely more of a yellow-cream or beige/tan color and made of a something that reminds us more of backpack material than canvas. The clips that fold over and attach the liner to the metal frame appear well designed and able to hold up to full loads in the large basket without tearing or separating out of place. Two of the four wheels have a toggle on them that allows you to "lock" them in place. We're very pleased and definitely recommend this item for those that are looking for a product that falls outside standard laundry hampers or sorters, especially if you like an industrial/retro chic look. It looks GREAT in our laundry room!
