What reviewers didn't like

Lid hinges have been known to break, though not often. Some distortion under heavy load.
Plastic is more prone to cuts and holes from sharp tools. The hardware holding the latches can strip over time. A handcart is required to transport three or more stacked tool chests.
A Little Heavy When Fully Loaded
Some customers complain that the hinges aren’t very durable
Plastic material might deform with heavy loads
There are no internal dividers and the tools can end up in a heap, when on the move
The top compartment could be bigger. It does not span the entire length of the tool box which eliminates extra space I could have had to store more of my drill bits, etc.
It is made of plastic and seems a bit brittle.
