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 2.5 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flimsy, Poor Design Poor quality. From day 1, the top sliding roof was non-functional, and after a year one hinge broke. As with every other reviewer, the top hinges are brittle hard plastic and one (3T17 8) snapped easily with normal use. Planning on ordering replacements and spares as I doubt the replacements will last any longer. The upper (sliding) roof portion sags and doesn't slide smoothly onto the rear lower roof section. There's a metal plate positioned perfectly to prevent normal operation. The metal plate digs into the plastic rear roof section and prevents opening without climbing into the shed and lifting the rear portion or wedging a tool (screwdriver, prybar, etc.) to lift the section from the outside. The plate being slightly recessed (1/8") would easily prevent this issue, but clearly the product was never even given a cursory test before being released. I bought this product in 2016, and seeing so many reviews from 4-5 years ago with the exact same complaints is a good indicator of the lack of quality control and effort the company puts towards rectifying a clearly poorly designed product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Roof is warping I have had this for a few years now. Over time the corners of the roof have begun to warp upwards. This places downpressure on the middle of the rear of the sliding roof, making it very difficult to push the roof back. I had been able to push down on the corners which would allow the roof to slide, but it is beyond that point now. Shed is level.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yet to see how it holds up To an earlier review, the picture of the shed shows a lock on the front, obviously the best way to secure the doors from blowing open. So far I like this shed, I have made the ground a leveled area to set it on. I do have to lift the back end of the front sliding roof to open it. Also if Rubbermaid would send me door hinges,I would appreciate it. From reading these reviews they obviously break easy as I will be in and out of the shed often for my yard equipment. I was also curious as to what I could do to mount shelving (possibly peg board hooks) or something to put my shovels, rakes, weed eater, and cutters up high for more room and easier access without ruining the integrity of the side walls and keep the shelving from sagging over time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Design flaws I bought this product last spring to store bikes and yard tools. Size and shape are great. However, with the first storm, the doors that were properly shut blew open and then the hinges broke. Thing is, I think had there been a lock on they wouldn't have blown open, thus the hinges wouldn't have broken, as now when I physically place the doors on and place a lock through the provided metal loop, they don't blow open. Wish the company would say something about this in their manual - would have put a lock on from the very beginning to prevent the breakage. Also the roof sags, impossible to slide back by myself and rainwater leaks in through between the two parts of the roof.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor door hinge design I bought the slide lid shed last Fall to store my self-propelled lawn mower and the future purchase of a small riding lawn mover. I noticed the top left door hinge broke last week. I specifically installed the shed on a concrete pad, under my deck backed up to my three seasons room. I thought these added precautions would protect the shed from the elements. Hinge is just a poor design at a major stress point.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Door broke... We've had for a couple years - it is flimsy...door doesn't close properly, pushed shut with my foot, and it broke the hinge on top How do I order a new door??

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality Bought last year, but never left review. Both hinges for the door broke after the first night. The roof sags and making it difficult to open. It does store my lawn equipment nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1/3 Quality of the last slide roof model Right hinge broke first week, and now roof is sagging and won't slide open. I have two rubbermaid slide roof sheds that have lasted 10 years and counting. These new ones are as flimsy as they can possibly make them. No quality compared to their previous model I owned.
