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."

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.

Assembly & Manuals


Outdoor Storage Box (130 gallon) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 113.
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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful Storage Box & Customer Service, Poor Packaging and Shipping!!! Customer Service was super at replacing the dented top to the 130 Gal Storage Box I ordered. Replacing this top could have been alleviated with proper packaging and shipping. There was no packing material around storage box to prevent damage from Fed Ex's poor handling of product. Consequently dents to Storage Box. I would suggest Styrofoam packing around Storage Box. The second top I received seems to be fine but again it was shipped in a box that was at least a foot too long for the top. The top's box was crushed, punctured and dented by Fed Ex. We opened the box and it looks fine but it has not been installed yet.

Are they water tight?

Asked by: Joe W
Yes, if you put it together right! I have two, one leaks but I did not put the four ADW screw in it and it will let water inside. The other one does not allow water in it.

Asked by: RATER
Our deck boxes just have hinges on each corner that use a gas spring to keep the lid from slamming shut or opening too quickly. There is not a hinge that goes along the entire back side of the lid.

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.
