Reviews for "Hardware Container - Small"


I just bought screws in the new box. After struggling with the lid, I found a way to open the lid. I have a larger box but I think it will work on the small. I place my fingertips on the lid and my thumb on one of the clear corner tabs. With my thumb, I apply pressure to the tab deflecting it toward the box. While it is deflected, I pull the tab up a little and it presses that corner of the lid up. I can hear and feel the lid snap open.

Love the containers, great for wood screw storage and organization.One problem though, I wish you sold replacement labels. I wrote on mine with a Sharpie and now I can't change names. Love all my Kreg products, keep up the good work.

New Kreg boxes

Nice box but I cannot open them. If you are supposed to remove one of the corner tabs then I can get them open, But as an old retired guy these are very hard to open and I need a flat tool to pry them open.

some containers are hard to open

I am changing my original review and adding a star. I think there could be a manufacturing flaw with some of the containers. The first container I tried to open was a 1-1-2". After working on it for several minutes I did finally get it open with a bottle opener. The second container was for 2-1/2". All I had to do to open it was bend one corner tab back and the lid opened easily with my thumb.

Works fine.

This is in reply to Mike's review. I think that's the point. As these are the same containers that they are now selling their screws in, those four tabs on the corners are the "tamper proofing" so people don't open them up in the store and steal things out.

Can't open containers by hand

After I snapped the lid on the first container and tried to open it back up, I was not happy. The only way I could get the lid off was to break the corner off of the container and use a pair of pliers to pull the lid off. I think somebody fumbled the ball on this one. No lip on the lid to open with, no place to even stick a screw driver in.
