130 Gallon Outdoor Storage Box (Desert Sand)


Consumers Digest awarded the Lifetime Deck Box a Best Buy award in September 2009, stating "This unit delivers the most storage capacity of any deck box and includes the best warranty of any horizontal shed that we found." Our 130 gallon Lifetime outdoor storage box has plenty of room to store all of the items that you would like to keep in a convenient outdoor location. Designed with a strong, lockable, spring-hinged lid which opens to more than 90 degrees for easy access and uses a gas assist piston to prevent it from slamming shut. This is a great safety feature, especially if you have small children. The versatile, innovative design of the Lifetime pool storage box even allows you to install interior dividers! This weather-resistant Lifetime deck box is built to withstand the elements with UV-protected high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic construction and a water-resistant seal to keep your storage items safe and dry. A great solution for your outdoor storage needs! Made in the USA from US and imported parts. Assembly required.

Outdoor Storage Box (130 gallon) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from GOOD VALUE I bought mine 9/2011 at[...]. It was a pain in the butt to put together by myself (wife was busy) and even though I followed instructions to the T it seems out of square and lid never easily closed and laid flat. It did keep water out (stored extra propane tank for grill as well as seat cushions) until some "varmits" started chewing on it to get in to get the bird seed my wife kept in it. Now I need a lid and front panel. Not sure if those parts are available or if I have to just buy a new one. I would recommend this to anyone needing outside storage. Just don't keep food or anything that will attract raccoons, squirrels, opossums, etc, as they have sharp teeth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TRIPLE DUTY!!!!!!!!! The first on one we bought fit perfectly on our new deck. We store our patio furniture cushions in it. However, we have more cushions than will fit in just one box. We bought an additional box because they were a great price. Everything fit perfectly. Here is the triple duty part..........because we have two boxes, we have put them side by side and our grandchildren use them as a seat as well as a table. So, a storage box, a seat, and a table. It doesn't get any better than that! Well maybe just for one more thing, my husband thought their durability was so great, that we bought one more to put in the garage for his fishing equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pays to do your homework Bottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. "Prior to purchasing my new Lifetime Deck Box, I researched virtually every other brand available. I spoke with neighbors and looked at their boxes, all of which are only rated 1-3 Stars on various sites. I found a few sites that actually sold and had Customer Reviews for the Lifetime Deck Box, virtually all of which are 5 Stars. Based upon the 5-Star Reviews and product photos, I decided to order the Lifetime Deck Box. There is none that can match the quality and price of this box. Now my neighbors are considering replacing their "Brand Names" with one that is virtually unknown and will eventually be "The Paradigm" of deck boxes. Thank you for a truly quality product. It pays to do your homework prior to making any purchase. Texas"

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Storage box (130 gallon) model 60040 Bought on April 18, 2015 I purchased this for the storage capacity for my front porch. However, the time to put it together was over several hours. Would like to point out the molded bubble to go into the fitted slots on the bottom floor plate needs to be better trimmed to fit into the slots. The holes for the screws should have a starter hole or an inverted dimple on the other side for the screws to go in properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Outdoor Storage Box I have two of these, a 130 Gallon and a 80 Gallon. The 80 gallon sits in the sun all day long and has been there for over 4 years, it still looks new. The 130 gallon does sit in the shade most of the day but I expect it will Imitate its name and last a lifetime. I use the 80 gallon in my garden, where I store all the small tools, connectors, and fertilizers. The 130 gallon I use for storing equipment for a travel trailer that I don't need in the truck when not on the road. Both of these storage boxes are very sturdy, functional, and well built. I especially like the assisted closing device, and the way it holds the door open. I am very pleased with my purchases and would definitely recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful I have outdoor chairs sets with voluminous cushions and this deck box works perfectly to stash the pillows when not needed. The deck box is waterproof, so the cushions don't get wet and it seems to keep insects out, too. It is sturdy and can be used for extra seating. They wipe down easily and are relatively quick to assemble - I have three of them so the first one took the longest, but the other two were faster to put together. The instructions are clear, but you must be detail-oriented when looking at the pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better than the competition 3 suncast deck boxes (all junk) and time for quality. Very pleased with packaging, assembly and overall quality. Install is fast and easy with a few hand tools. Note that there are 4 unused hole along the top drip lip that can let water in. You may want to plug these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality build and assembly Designed for easy installation, sturdy panels, engineered to hold together. The assembly went smoothly with a few additional tools: a rubber mallet - to firmly seat the side panels, a small head steel tapping hammer - to properly align the metal front flange, and a high torque, low speed drill to quickly and easily seat the bolts. All in all assembly went faster than I anticipated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I was searching for a outdoor storage box for our pool deck and looked at different brands of storage units. I read the reviews of different companies and Lifetimes outdoor storage box had the highest rating among consumers. So I ordered one and I was amazed at how well built it was and how simple it was to assemble. I'm very pleased with the purchase. On a side note we have a Lifetime Basket Ball goal I bought 8 years ago that is still in excellent condition. I'm now looking to purchase some additional Lifetime benches for our pool deck. Thanks Lifetime for making a product that's built to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Tough Storage Box I have owned the Lifetime 130 gallon storage box for several years. If you saw it today, you would think it is brand new. This product can take a beating in the heat or cold and perform perfectly every time. My favorite part is the gas assist pistons that hold up the lid and keep it from falling down on my head or hands. A close second favorite feature is a place to lock the lid. I store pesticides, fertilizers and garden tools in this storage box and use a padlock for extra safety and peace of mind. Since the lid can handle up to 900 pounds of weight on it, I don't have to worry if I stand, sit or keep things on the top. Strong, safe, versatile and good looking - definitely worth the price!

My front panel caught lots of water. When I moved the storage unit and turned it sideways the water came pouring out. What could be the cause of that?

Asked by: Shon
We have had this report come in a few times - we have tried re-create the water accumulation and haven't been able to. I would suggest trying a warranty claim. Please call Customer Service at 1-800-225-3865.

One of your reviewers commented that there were 4 unused holes that potentially leak water into the box.  He indicated the holes needed to be plugged.  Has that been fixed by you or how does one "plug" the holes?  I  plan to purchase!

Asked by: Lucky
Hi Lucky, It sounds like you are referring to the side panels that have four holes each. Only 2 of the 4 holes are used for the assembly. The reason there are four holes is that the parts are universal, and it doesn’t matter which panel you use. There is nothing available to plug the other holes.

My storage unit is about 2 years old. All of the fasteners and parts of the operating cylinder have completely rusted out. I have a second one that the fasteners seem to be from a different material (stainless steel?) and have no problem.
