I,ve had the miss fortune to own this heap of junk for less than 9 months in that time the hinges on the top box have sheared off, the lids on the two compartment boxes have broken and the bottom storage box has become out of shape so therefore the top box no longer locates as it should making transporting it almost impossible.
pay a bit more and buy the metal box I,m sure you wont be dissapointed

One fatal flaw
This very handy pull along case with some good compartments is let down immensely by the wheel size - the slightest bump or pebble on the ground scratches the bottom as the wheels are too small by about an inch, which is a real shame as I can't see it lasting long. At least the top part will function as a perfectly good toolbox once the base inevitably breaks.

The plastic lid hinges broke after a few weeks of light use.
Good in theory and nicely designed, but pretty useless in practice.

Nice design but.....
I have used one of these for about 12 months now. I am a curtain/blind fitter so, although I need to carry quite a few tools and components but nothing too heavy.
The design is very good but the execution is, as they say, less than perfect:
Wheels dropped out continuously (and always at the most inconvenient time!) - until modified. The clasps drop out - until modified.
When loaded, the bottom scrapes the ground - I had to put spacers in the wheel retainers to give more clearance.
The plastic used is only just about up to the job when new but is getting pretty bent up now.
Despite all the above, the design is pretty much spot on for my work so it's difficult to find a suitable alternative.
Good storage - especially with the circular drawer. I would probably buy another one when this one dies.
More suited to home user than a professional. Stanley would have a real winner if they beefed it up.
