"Got it in white."

There are plenty of hooks for ties and a couple extra for belts. Love this little case perfect for my electrical tools and testers. We are do-it-yourself people, but this was tougher than we expected. It works perfectly with my decór. They fit perfectly in most dresser drawers or chests.

"Accessibility is key."

Fast shipping and excellent product. Assembly was a little annoying but the end product is lovely. We are do-it-yourself people, but this was tougher than we expected. Will be purchasing more in the future for winter coats. Read the measurements carefully.

"But, not too big a deal."

There was no dust or moisture in the boxes! They are sturdy with a some room for flex. These are seriously heavy duty units. Switch from a portable tool box to a portable bucket. I had these in a small kitchen with minimal storage.

"Cons: None."

It was quick and easy to assemble. It’s surprisingly sturdy and doesn’t look cheap. Super versatile and great quality. I purchased this organizer to store all my GoPro accessories. Won't stop kids from pulling out and dumping.
