Leg not long enough with my 'Swedish' kitchen units”
by Mrs Green
I don't know if this, well know Swedish company kitchen units are set a bit higher than others but even on it's longest setting the leg wasn't long enough. Fortunately the fabulous Lakeland Customer Service came to the rescue and gave me a full refund, so the stars are for them (although the product itself seems well made & pretty sturdy)!

just a little bit too short”
My plinth is 16cm and so the leg is just about 2cm too short to reach the floor -- I've ordered the bin before the last review was published. However, if pulled out carefully the bin doesn't tip over, so it can be used. I like the dimension, just right for all the bottles and tubs I keep under the sink, and the sturdy construction. Also the fact that the bin glides very smoothly when pulled out or pushed in and the content doesn't topple. I would give it 5 stars if it had a longer leg.

Great but Check Your Cupboard Height”
This really does work but check how high of the ground the bottom of your cupboard is - if it's much more than 16cm the tilt when it rests on the foot is too steep for it to be stable. I also think there's a limit to how many heavy bottles of cleaning fluids you could get in before it becomes unstable. That said I'm using one in cupboard 15cm off the ground for cakes baking bits (cupcake cases and biscuit cutters) and it's absolutely brilliant. I'm buying too more for similar items for another cupboard. 3 stars is because of the lack of warning about cupboard height.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're pleased the bins are so useful. Thank you for your helpful tip. The supporting leg is adjustable from 11cm (4.5") to 16cm (6.25") We do hope this helps other customers.
This product is pure genius. Make sure it fits the cupboard it's meant for (which I did) and it works like a dream. All my lower cupboards are now beautifully organised and I can use every bit, even the deepest parts. Wonderful.

Roll out bin”
I have just received my roll out bin. followed the instructions for fitting the leg but it doesn't reach the floor leg is about 1-2 cm too short. I will be using it tho as all the tubes and tiny bottles of cleaning fluids fit neatly inside and don't get pushed to the very back of the cupboard.It would be useful if the manufacturers could make a slightly longer leg as I have a new kitchen and some of the other reviewers seem to have had the same problem. But still giving it 4 stars.

Roll Out Bin”
by Mrs SMITH
Used the measure before I assembled my bins and discovered that my plinth is about 1/2" too high so the support leg doesn't reach the floor. No maximum height for the plinth is given in the description and as it looks quite high in the picture I presumed mine would be okay. However the weight of the items in the back stops the bin tilting and the support leg does stop it falling out when it eventually reaches the floor.

I've just take delivery of one of these for my under-sink cupboard, to enable me to keep track of the various bottles, jars and gizmos that hide in there. The design is ingenious, and I'd like to buy a couple for my pan cupboards too, but would prefer the larger size, as detailed on the manufacturer's website.

This is such a great cupboard helper! Easy to set up, but unfortunately at it's highest setting the pop out leg does not reach the floor and the whole thing tipped the first time I tried it. I have to be very mindful when I use it not to pull it too far out. This does defeat the object a bit, so I was thinking of a way of glueing something to the foot to make it touch the floor and keep it stable when in use as this is such a great idea. Even though it doesn't adapt to the height of my cupboard which looks normal to me, I am still giving it five stars :O)

Absolutely brilliant - why has no one ever thought of this before. A great product that really works.

I have been watching for these to come back into stock without success. on Saturday I visited the Solihull branch and there they were!! I bought 5 and left them in the car boot at our hotel. they are now in use and are even better than I hoped.Thanks Lakeland, yet another wonderful product, perfect for older folk and probably ideal for pregnant ladies as the bulge grows. I am currently deciding if I need more.

This review is for an older version of this product
The idea is brilliant, and just what I was looking for to find things in my under sink cupboard. However, I have them on the highest setting and they are not quite high enough for my kitchen cupboards like a few other reviewers. It is enough to stop them tipping up, so long as the heavy stuff isn't at the front, so they do work. Very well made, strong boxes though, so as the title says, almost perfect!

superb design but....”
I bought two of these. Loved the idea and design. However, they do not live up to expectations. I adjusted the support according to very clear instructions using the measure provided. My cupboard is at the top limit of the height on measure. When the support is attached in the correct position for this height, the basket pivots close to its centre. The basket is not level when pulled out & the foot is 2cm above the floor, so the basket and its contents could tip if not very carefully loaded. I have attached the foot in the wrong position, which improves them enough to use with care.

Roll Out Bin is a winner”
Just like Mari, I bought one last week just to see if it worked - it did, and I`m also going to get more! So much better than having to crouch down all the time. It takes a bit of getting used to because you think it will tip over - but it doesn`t, and slides back so smoothly as well. Very pleased.

For the arthritically challenged!”
Having bought one of these roll-out bins last week, just to see if it would be the answer to my problems, I'm now buying three more. For the last couple of years I'd almost given up hope of being able to reach anything in the back of my cupboard-under-the-sink ... until now. All those fiddly little bits of metal polish, kitchen brushes, cleaning liquids, sponges, dusters, shoe cleaning stuff - they're all instantly accessible in this brilliant little pull-out box. And, once it's out, it stays level without spilling the contents all over the floor. Can't I give it six stars?

Amazing piece of engineering!”
These roll out bins are fantastic! I inwardly groaned when I saw that I might have to adjust the height of the spring-loaded step, (I'm a D.I.Y. disaster area) but it was as easy as ABC - I even got it right first time! Excellent idea, and brilliant design. As the little furry creatures say: "SIMPLES"!! Well done (again), Lakeland!
