Think Inside the Box

smoker 1.jpgWe love getting feedback from our customers. We have had all kinds of interesting topics sent in to us. This one was no exception. Although we can’t officially promote use of our products for anything other than their intended use, I thought this one was pretty clever.

Stan wrote in telling us how much he loves his Lifetime Outdoor Storage Box. Stan likes to cook meat using a smoker and needed a place to store his smoker on his deck and protect it from the elements. He devised a cleaver way to do this with his Lifetime Storage Box. First, he secured the box standing on one end. Then, he built a sliding shelf in it. Now, whenever he wants to smoke his meat he opens the “door” of the box and slides out the shelf. Voila, the smoker is ready to go. When he is done with it, and the smoker has cooled, he slides it back into the box shuts the door. His smoker is out of sight and protected from the elements.smoker 2.jpgsmoker 3.jpg

Again, we don’t officially sanction this type of use of our product, but think this was certainly a pretty clever idea.smoker 4.jpg

The Lifetime Outdoor Storage Box is a great product. I use mine as a giant toy box big enough to hold even the bigger toys. My parents use theirs to store pool supplies, and have installed boards to divide it into compartments for pool toys, too.

If you don’t have one of our deck storage boxes, you can check them out in the USA at Lowe’s. They come in two sizes (80-gallon and 130-gallon), and in two different color schemes. You can also find them in the Lifetime Store Online.

Thanks so much for sharing, Stan.  If you have a creative way you use your Lifetime product like Stan did, drop us a line on this blog, our Facebook page, or via email to pr@lifetime.com.  We'd love to hear how you think outside - or inside - the box!

I think we can use it to store jewellery and other accessories. It can be used to store sport equipments and other accessories.

Hello.

Sorry we don't make covers for them. That's a good idea however.

Lifetime Acquires Kayak Company
We've been pretty busy at Lifetime this week and can finally tell you what all the commotion is about. Lifetime is expanding into another new sporting goods industrywater sports! Fun, huh? Just this week, Lifetime acquired the assets of San Bernardino, CA-based Dragonfly Innovation, Corp. and its kayak products. It's a move that just makes good sense for Lifetime. Kayaks you say? Yep, that's right. It's a great way to complement our other sporting goods lineup, which already includes basketball systems, soccer goals, and a tetherball set. And, the kayaks work well with our plastics manufacturing expertise, since they are a blow-molded product. Lifetime will manufacture the blow-molded kayaks in its Utah facility, which means the creation of more manufacturing jobs! Plus, with Lifetime manufacturing kayaks, it's good news fo...
Governor Herbert Visits Lifetime Factory
Well, the election is over! Now, the real work begins. Here in Utah, Governor Herbert was re-elected to a second term. And during his acceptance speech, he mentioned empowering the private sector to grow the economy and how Utah is doing better than about any place in America. To learn more about the manufacturing private sector, Governor Herbert actually toured our factory here in the Freeport Center last week. He first met briefly with our president, Richard Hendrickson, to gain insight on how government can better help Utah manufacturing companies and then he addressed a small group of Lifetime employees saying, Lifetime Products is a great example of a homegrown Utah business competing successfully in a global marketplace. Their commitment to innovation and providing quality products keeps hundreds of Utahns employed and ...
Paddling Vacations
These days, taking a family on a vacation is no easy feat. Not financially and not logistically. It requires money, planning, and time! But it is totally worth it! Times are changing and so are vacation options. You dont need to go to Disney Land to have a great family experience. Why not plan a vacation around kayaking? Almost anywhere there is water, there is someone who rents kayaks. But, if you have your own, that is great! There are so many great paddling destinations in the United States it would take forever to list them all. The best part about a kayaking vacation is that you often get to experience a new place or situation that so many others dont get to! Kayaking out to a secret cove, or down a calm moving river in a desolate canyon are all great ways to bond with your friends and family, get exercise and have a fa...
