Slide Lid Shed

  

Now it is easier than ever to store bikes, mowers and other garden tools out of site. The Rubbermaid Slide Lid Shed is short enough to fit under standard fence heights yet has ample room to hold everything from long-handled tools to riding or push lawn mowers. Rollers on the roof make it easy to slide the lid back to access all the items stored in the shed. Included Wall Anchors allow you to easily organize your belongings inside the shed.

  • Low profile designed to meet standard fence height requirements
  • Great for mowers, large power equipment, bicycles, trash cans and other hard to store items
  • Rollers allow lid to easily slide back for access to items in the back of the shed
  • Unique cane bolt locking mechanism secures doors and roof
  • Lockable (lock not included)
  • Durable double wall construction allows the use of shelving, pegboard or storage hooks on back wall using included wall anchors (shelving, pegboard and storage hooks not included)
  • Leak, dent and weather resistant
  • Easy to assemble

Slide Lid Shed is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good shed Just assembled mine yesterday. Picked it up at Lowes around 11am and by 3pm I finished the assembly. Not a problem, did it all by myself. I did use a No 9 VIX-Bit Self Centering drill bit to pre-drill all the holes. This made the sheet metal screws included with the product much easier to screw into the plastic and keep them centered. Also, be sure not to over tighten. If using an electric power driver be very careful!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Practical but with some flaws.... I've used this shed for about a year to store different items in it through out the year. I have a structural shed but it is located in another section of the backyard, this is kept on the cement patio close to the house. So it gets plenty of use...however there are several flaws with some of the way it is put the together. For example, I am also having the same issue as many where the roof does not slide, looks like the plastic roof is bent or something is bent so it prevents it from sliding correctly. I need to force the roof up a little and push to get it to slide. I'm about to order my second set of "hinges" for the door (left side) for some reason the locking pole on the inside doesn't seem to have a hole to secure into and therefore the door has swung out several times and the hinges have broken off (plastic inserts snap). If you can live with some of these deficiencies it is worth it if you will use it and like I said can live with having to open it a special way and may need to order replacement parts once a year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Leftover "parts" The storage shed too 2 people over 4 hours. Not easy to assemble. I have "hooks" left over but product description said storage hooks do not come with and the instruction mention "accessory hooks" but do not say when they might go. I wish I had read the reviews on Rubbermaid site before I purchased. I will call customer service to see if they have a clue about where the accessory hooks go. Hopefully they were left out of the major assembly instructions meaning the shed would not be structurally sound.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lid won't slide I just received and assembled the shed. The lid has stuck when pushed back from the very beginning. It is installed on a level concrete foundaion. I have tried to adjust he kidnaps but it is making the problem worse!!!! I am hopeful Rubbermaid will assist me but I wish I had avoided this shed altogether.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish I had read reviews before buying this I wish I had read reviews before I bought this shed. It looks like I'm having the same problem as many others, a roof that wont slide open. So frustrating that I own a shed that doesnt properly work and I cant return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NICE SHED, BUT NON-FUNCTIONAL SLIDING ROOF I just bought this shed a few days ago and it looks great once assembled. Nice shed for my purposes. Holds a lawn mower, gas cans and some gardening tools. Solid construction - except the sliding front roof is difficult to operate. It keeps getting caught on the stationary back roof. Needs more clearance space. I'm sure that the reason for the non-functional sliding roof is due to the fact that I have the shed on a dirt foundation - rather than a solid (concrete or asphalt) foundation - but it is after all a shed for the backyard. The designers should have taken that into consideration. Seems to be a consistent issue based upon the other reviews.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Perfect size, imperfect design Great storage shed for our purposes. Height is lower than our fence, so there's no HOA issue. Holds a good amount of items - lawn mower, snow blower, fertilizer spreader, trimmer, bean-bag-toss boards, and smaller miscellaneous things. The design on this shed needs some serious attention. I came here looking for replacement parts for the lid, but ended up reading all these reviews and was kind of shocked that there were so many of the same issues. The lid warps. The support on the inside is lacking. The screws strip the plastic so they won't grip. The lid won't open as it should, it gets caught on the back roof panel. To top it all off, you can't take it back and exchange it. The warranty period is pointless. Now I've got a shed that I can't get into, and I'm out $300 with no way to improve or modify the shed. Steer clear!
