Love this box. Someone wrote that the lid only opens 45 degrees. That only happens if you put the two end pieces on the wrong ends. Unfortunately I did that, and I had to switch them out after I put it together and now it opens all the way. Unfortunately, the instructions were not clear about the end pieces or maybe I didn't read them thoroughly. In any case, I love the box. It is nice looking and it has a hydraulic closure. This is a great deal compared to others I have seen on the market.
Exactly as described, easy to assemble, good material , excellent operation. I would recommend this to anyone. Packaging was good, quick delivery . We were looking for a teak storage unit that matched our existing teak furniture and this product was perfect. The lid slowly closes due to the pistons so it is very safe.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Excellent
Please tell us about the quality of the product. High quality easy to assemble
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
The issue is the size. I bought it because it said it was 52" wide. I wanted to store lounge cushions. The top it 52" but not the inside. Less than 48". Somewhat of a letdown. The top also does not open all of the way. A real pain!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was fine - looks good.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not accurate at all.
I would have written a very good review of this product if not for one huge issue. The mechanism that prevents the lid from slamming closed also prevents the lib from opening beyond a 45 degree angle. This makes is impossible to hold the lid open while negotiating the storage of large patio furniture cushions. We were forced to remove the mechanisms. We determined that we needed the ability to open the top fully more than we needed to ensure a slow closure. Very disappointing. However, it wasn't worth returning the product for that reason. It looks really nice on my patio and is the perfect size to store two chaise lounge cushions and six chair cushions. It is also strongly made and will be very useful as both extra seating and extra counter top space when we are entertaining.
Overall, I'm happy enough to keep it but would be leery of recommending it. Price too high for such a problem to exist.
Company should fix the issue.
