What to look for in a Storage System (cont.)
4. Stackability is paramount. If you are using more than one storage system then it is really important that they can maintain the weight that they are being exposed to in a stack situation. Interlocking stack patterning on the storage chest can help avoid any issues also with allowing a firm footing to place your next storage system on.
5. Easy utilization is also important. The addition of stacking trays in a top shelf can help to itemize smaller things from the larger and helps with ease of finding what you are looking for in a hurry.
6. Heavy duty handles, latches and hinges are a huge consideration in your storage system choice. If you have any weight in your storage box and lift it frequently, you will need the peace of mind of knowing that the handles can take the weight and not put you in an unsafe situation. The same can be said of hinges and latches. With frequent opening and closing some inferior storage chests quickly lose integrity in the said parts and, again, can become unsafe to use.
