    Chalked, they are or were utter cack though. Very poor fitting and closing of the drawers that would spring open at the slightest hint of a nudge. I had a good mind to send mine back but gave them away instead.

    I'm gonna prove you guys wrong with ya fancy Stanley deep drawers.

    Bond two together back to back (to stiffen) and fit some metal clasps and you'll be soooo jealous of my mega case.

    I will take a pic of mine tomorrow. Maybe they are made poorer quality these days.

    Sorry to hear you've had a bad experience with one of our products. Did you order the units directly from our website? We've never had any complaints regarding our Van Storage Cabinet range so are obviously disappointed to hear of your comments.

    We can assure you that our quality levels have not dropped but sometimes, as with anything, a faulty product may slip through the net (although we always try our best to prevent this from happening). When this does happen, we are always the first to offer a refund/exchange of product (within 30 days of purchase). Do you have any pictures that you could dm us, so we could investigate further?

    Our Installation team use the majority of our van storage ranges themselves and we always ask them for any feedback (as well as customer feedback which is done through Ekomi).

    We just want to clarify that we wouldn't sell something that we wouldn't use ourselves and we would never aim to sell "utter cack"!!

    I no longer own the drawers, I gave them away as I felt they were not fit for purpose. The quality is not the issue but the design is so I suggest you take note of the review left by another of your customers over two years ago as it sums up my experience precisely.

    "Overall it case is of rugged bild the only bit that lets it down are the clips to keep the drawers shut on ruff ground in the back of a 4x4 thy failed and sent the contents everywhere as I had screwed the box in to the wall I have now just hooked a bar over the front"

    The drawer clips/closing mechanisms are indeed not adequate enough especially when loaded with relatively heavy items like copper fittings, fine for haberdashery perhaps not the back of a moving van without modification which I was unprepared to do.

    Boys and girls. I know that this is a massively old thread but I am in need of some more Stanley organisers. Anyone know of anywhere that have them on offer. Don’t feel like getting bent over.
