I purchased two of the Stack-On Clear View 12-Bin Organizers to use in my kindergarten classroom for storing small pieces for our phonics center. These are much sturdier and thicker than I thought they would be. I was expecting the thin plastic that the Stack-On drawer organizers are made of. This was a pleasant surprise.
I expected the doors to be attached to each individual bin, but it is one long clear door over each row. It does lock into an open position and is pretty secure when closed, as it sort of snaps into place in the closed position. I'm a little worried that if I snap the door into the closed position that it will eventually break. To remedy this, I am just closing the lid without snapping it into place. I have these organizers hanging on a drywall wall using screws and plastic anchors. Should last for years and years, especially since my kindergarten students are not allowed to get into it. :)
I used some cute scrapbook paper, cut it into the shape of each bin lid, and used Mod Podge to adhere and seal the scrapbook paper onto each door. I then applied alphabet letters and a protective layer of Mod Podge to label each bin with the alphabet letters, with the last two having two letters each since there were only 24 drawers on two of these units. I am using these to keep up with and to keep separated all of these tiny toys and trinkets we use in kindergarten for sound sorting. These bins are going to do the job perfectly and are going to be super cute. See the photo I added for ideas - I have shown the decorated bins with the top lid being open.
