• Set up automatically:  When opposing corners are pushed together, the bottom “automatically” folds into place.  Simply press on the floor panel to engage the locking tab.
  • No tape closure:  Packaways are designed for easy in and out access with a no-tape top closure.  Fold the two length panels down and then tuck the locking tabs into the slots.
  • Many Applications:  Packaways can be useful for a number of applications: home organization, back to school, seasonal items, clothing storage, kids toys, the garage, camping, etc.  These are ideal when space is an issue since packaways store knocked down flat for convenient, out of the way storage.
The first thing I noticed about the packaways is how easy it is to set up the boxes.  You simply push the corners in and push the floor panel down.  I was also impressed with how much stuff these boxes can hold.  I recently was consulting for a work from home business, At Home America, and I had a lot of business supplies and inventory that I needed to find a home for.
The small packaways box was perfect for all of my business supplies.  Even though all of the the catalogs, order forms, and other supplies can get pretty heavy once you add it all up, the packaways had no problem holding it all.
The larger box I used for some of the actual product I needed to carry around with me to different events.  It held just about all of my stuff, where previously I had been using a plastic bin and several reusable grocery bags to tote everything.  I now have everything I need in these two boxes, and they are easy to carry with built in handles.  I really couldn’t have found a better solution!
Here are the packaways completely folded down.  You can see they are about as tall as my counters, and not very wide.  These store away easily when not in use.

Once you have the packaways set up by simply pushing the corners together and pushing down the floor, you simply need to fill it and close it.  Here is all the business stuff I packed into my small packaway.

To close it up is simple, you just push down the long sides first.

Then you tuck the short sides into the tabs so that it stays closed!

So far the sides have not come open on me, and I have to say the tab design is really great for ease of use.  Here is my fully closed packaway:

The handles are quite durable as well, and I find makes these really easy to tote around!

Here is the larger sized packaway that holds all of my actual product I carried with me to shows.

Overall I really like these as storage boxes, especially if you have things you need to move around or carry around a lot.  

Pros:  Easy to set-up, folds flat for easy storage, durable, lightweight, holds a lot.

Cons:  Not waterproof (or bug proof), small items may fall out the slits in the bottom so it is really only designed to hold larger things.
