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)

Slide Lid Shed is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hinges and Slide Roof are Terrible After 1 week a hinge has broke and the roof has sagged to where I can't open it unless I drag it from the back. Really disappointed in this product had high hopes due to rubbermaid reputation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good thought, poor design I have had this shed for a year and the roof has never slide correctly. It bows in the middle and the hinges have broken.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice thought - poor design I bouth this at this beginning of spring last year. The good: It looks NICE in the yard - doesn't look cheap or plastic, "hides" or blends in well. I like the IDEA of the roof sliding back to be able to easily access things in the back. It was fairly easy to assemble with some help to hold the pieces together tightly and properly aligned while I placed the screws. It seems to keep rain and snow out well. The bad - It has now been approximately 6 months of ownership: The doors no longer align with the hook to ensure it stays shut without quite a bit of finagling and playing with the sides. And yes I have this on a level surface. I could put up with this knowing that it is plastic, but... The UGLY: And I mean ugly. Within approximately two weeks of ownership, the roof of this shed was visibly sagging which...prevents the front piece from sliding backwards. I knew that this had been a reviewed problem and so read through the intended solution on the website first, that the two pieces had to be aligned a certain way or the sagging would occur. I'm sorry, but I followed these directions to a T when assembled to make sure there were no gaps and that it made the correct angle -- and this sagging issue still occurs and blocks me from using one of the main listed features of this product and one of my main reasons for purchasing this shed over a tin/metal one. I should have listened to the others on this site. I wouldn't purchase until they've redesigned the roof issue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Roof bows, doors bust off hinges I purchased 3 sheds in May, 2016. All 3 have the same issues. The hinges have broken on all three. I replaced the hinges on one of the sheds within a week of being assembled. The roofs of all 3 are bowed down from the weight of the roof. It's a 2-person job to slide roof back. Someone needs to be inside and push up on the front section while the other person pushes that section back over the back section. Absolutely made sure ground was level. One is on asphalt. The other two sit on blocks that were dug into the ground, rocks put down, then leveling sand used. The leveling took some time valuable time. I'm disappointed in the product. I chose the Rubbermaid shed over two other brands because of the reputation of quality. The quality isn't the on this product. This product needs to be discontinued. Why hasn't it been redesigned. It is a great concept that was apparently put on the market without real world testing. I gotta put a positive in here. The shed looks good. Everything goes together without much hassle. As long as everything is level, all parts fit nicely. Directions are clear. Most the shed is solid except for the doors, does hinges, and sliding roof - oh, those are all the working parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Another broken hinge Same problem as everyone else. Bought the shed in 2012, and I'm about to buy my 3rd hinge. Wish it were a steal hinge. Roof doesn't work correctly. It'd be nice to have a door handle too. Not a bad shed for the price and the size, but I wish it were better quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like the Shed. But... I just bought three of these and put them together, with a helper ( my brother :) ). Let me start with the weak/negative(s), and progress to the positives, then some recommended homeowner tech. suggestions. Weak: 1. Door Hinge System. little torque / stress bearing. One has failed me within minutes of assembly. The top hinge brackets are a very rigid plastic, non forgiving with temperature ( 38 deg. F.). A gust of wind came, and the way the door system is designed, the door put pressure on the hinge bracket system itself ( top piece and door jamb-plastic was molded very thin on this particular door), snapped the hinge and the hollow part of the door itself where the "hinge" inserts, and door went flying. There is very little bearing surface between the doors and the body of the shed. Door is now unusable, and hinge is broken.( See manual for parts description). Positives: 1. Once assembled properly , extant the hinge system, the shed is solid. Very solid. Take your time. Torque low. Then re torque plastic connections till screws are snug and bottomed. Metal to metal: Same procedure, AND several days later, re-snug and all should be good . I believe this procedure will alleviate any roof problems mentioned in previous posts. I repeat , the shed is solid, except for the hinge system. Suggestions: 1. DEFINITELY need a solid, and, level left to right base. I used P.T. 2x4's, bracketed on joists, double perimeter frame and corners w/ 3/4 inch P.T. plywood floor base glued and nailed. Solid, with the weight and longevity to keep the shed(s) going strong for a long time. 2. MUST install some type of door stop. Either para cord tied to fixed middle roof bracket/truss - then through the lock system hole of the doors, and / or some type of physical stop on the exterior , driven into the ground to keep the doors from "slamming" open in the wind. The doors only open about 60 degrees from the closed position, and then pressure is applied to the small hinge bearing area. Put exterior stop / set cord at 55 degrees of door opening. I will update once I can reach customer service concerning the hinge system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken hinge and jammed roof I bought this over the summer. First sign of a slight cold day (45 deg) and the lower left hinge pin broke. Also after I assembled the shed, all things worked great. The next week I tried to push back the roof and it jammed against the rear roof. Very disappointed to see all of the reviews with the exact same problems I'm having with my unit. I suggest a redesign of the unit to correct these issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Storage Shed Bought in 2015. The top sliding roof has never operated well. You have to shake it and jiggle it to get it to slide. The left top door hinge broke after 15 months. Door hinges should be metal.
