          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I would have liked it enough to keep it had it arrived unbroken. The eyes are made sort of like some toy stuffed animal eyes. They are a black disk with a clear bubble that snaps over them. Mine arrived with one of the eye covers in 3 pieces loose in the box. I had to dig through the packaging to find all the fragments. The other eye is also missing a rather small piece of the plastic "bubble" but it is still attached. I would have been willing to overlook that defect had it been the only thing wrong. But the one in pieces is not something I can overlook. As a result I am taking it back to the store.

But the one in pieces is not something I can overlook. As a result I am taking it back to the store. The design clearly would have been better if it just had painted eyes since these were not even durable enough to survive shipping. Disappointing to never even get to set it out. I'll have to find something else to go where I was going to put it. I don't think the bubble that is still attached but has a small piece missing was done in shipping. I think that was a factory defect. I don't see how it could have happened in shipping. But the one that is in pieces was probably done in shipping and not at the factory. Too bad they don't have these in the store or I would get one there and inspect it before leaving with it to assure I got a good one. It's just one light out of 50,000 here but I was looking forward to the addition nonetheless. Too bad it did not arrive in better shape. I did not expect problems with this. I figured it was a pretty safe thing to have shipped. But be aware of the hazard. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Assemble
          Cons: Easily Damaged, arrived damaged, design could be better

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I can't really recommend this mainly due to the price. If you can use tools at all you can make one that works as well for a lot less. I found some containers about the same size (and solid black) and took a drill and utility knife and made 5 for what the one I bought like this costs. Mind you this one works fine and I'm satisfied with how well it works although it could be heavier duty given the price. But the 5 I made for the price of this one have worked every bit as well and look just as good. And they have all been through a very very wet season so far with a lot of hard rain.

So they have been put to the test. All kept the outlet strips and cords I have in them as dry as can be - including this one. So this one is fine if you really don't want to do any work on it other than set it out. But since I needed a lot of them I saved a lot of money going the other route and the ones I made stack better than these. The ones I made also catch water on the top due to a recessed lid but so do these. That is one thing that could be improved in the design. It seems pretty silly to have a water shedding container that stores a pool on top of the lid. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Use, Easy Installation, works well - stays dry inside

          I've used these before and just ordered some of these in both genders but these are too late to help me this year. I'm finished with my lights for this year. But I did order some of each male and female to have for next year since I end up doing some new things each year and these are a good deal compared to other sources I have used (and I shopped around a lot for them). Had HD not waited so long to stock them I'd have bought the ones I used this year here also (another 600 or so). I've also tried the heavier SPT2 ones from other places and I've come back to SPT1 just because it is so much easier to work with. It saves a lot of time when you are doing hundreds of ends.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Easy to Install, good value/price
          Cons: stocked too late in the year

          I agree whole heartedly with the other reviewer about it being a mistake to not have these now. I've been buying hundreds of each for several years. I'd been watching for them to come in stock this year for some time. I used a lot of them this year too (about 600 total of male&female) . I just bought them from someone other than HD for a little more money. It's a shame they no longer have these. After this year I won't even be looking here for them. I need a reliable source I can order from well before the holiday to allow me plenty of prep and build time for Christmas. I'd have bought more while they had them and stockpiled if I knew they were going away.
          Pros: good value
          Cons: no longer available here

          A heavy duty wreath/garland storage bag with handles. The 48 in. by 48 in. by 4 in. dimensions can easily fit any 9 ft. garland strand and it can store any decorated wreath up to 48 in. in size. Zips open for easy access and the handles make this a convenient way to store your product year after year.

          I've had this bag for 3 years now. Still in good shape and holding up well this year when I pulled it out. Stores a large heavy wreath well. I have mine stored in a storage building with a/c so it's not in a harsh environment so I can't say how it would hold up to that but I keep it hanging by the handles on a large S-Hook on the back of a Gladiator shelf unit and I see no issues. The wreath in it is pretty heavy with a 100 ct string of C9 lights on it (don't take them off). Just put it up for the year and it stored well. I had some issues in the building with high humidity earlier in the year but this thing seems to have protected the wreath from that and there are no issues from that. If I Read More

          Does it come in other sizes ? I've been using the 12 inch one for about 6 months now and am very happy with the way it cooks and how well it is holding up to practically daily use. I would not mind buying a couple smaller ones as well like say a 10 inch and an 8 inch.

          I don't really have much of a question just an amusing observation to pass along and since you can't modify reviews here it is.
          I put this up a week ago and it is indeed really nice - large, solid, well finished and easy to open and close. Piece of cake to mount.
          Today I had a post-it note left in the box with the days mail from the mail carrier lady. It said she loves this box !
          It was kind of funny to see and I'm glad she likes it too. Obviously she appreciates a smooth opening and closing box.
          I guess if you have to open and close them all day that would not go unnoticed. some certainly require more effort.

          To make this a question and thus kosher to put here I ask the populace...
          Has anyone else had a compliment from the mail carrier ?
          I'm just curious.
