At first glance it seemed very narrow and flimsy, but once I had the crop-a-dile tool inserted into the case the correct way, I found the case to be excellent for storage. TIP: (1st) Slide the rubber feet off your crop-a-dile tool and store them inside the case in one of the box squares. (2nd) Make sure that you place the crop-a-dile in the correct direction once you are placing it inside of the case. It will fit only one way. Once you get that part figured out the rest is a breeze. (3rd) Use the remaining provided empty box squares for your eyelets and grommets. (4th) Close and store. The case saves a lot of storage issues and keeps everything together. Now that my crop-a-dile is in the case, I do not think that it is too "narrow & flimsy". It is perfect to lay flat or stand erect.and eliminates the "falling over syndrome and mis-placed eyelets and grommet's. Oh yeah (# 5) Remember to replace the feet back onto your crop-a-dile the next time that you need to use it. I like the case, it's great for storage and travel. I also recommend this purchase!
I've had mine for over 18 months & still like (& USE) it. It is a delicate tool, but when used with care, works well. I do recommend this for organza and thinner, "hard to cut straight" ribbons. If mine broke, I would replace it.
