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.

"Bestest Yard Cart Ever in the Whole Wide World"
Over the past few months, Ive been sharing my personal reviews of the Lifetime Yard Cart. Ive come to the conclusion its an awesome product with lots of cool and unique features. So far, the only drawback Ive discovered is that it is difficult to dump multiple small loads because when the load shifts it is hard to tip the cart back down, both in wheelbarrow and trailer modes. Ironically though, this negative turned into a huge positive for us when we were spreading our compost. At first, I thought Lifetime had thought of everything with this product... cup holders, tool holders, trailer mode conversion, slats for building up the sides, and more. However, after using the Yard Cart for a while, I now have a few more ideas that I think would truly make the Lifetime Yard Cart the bestest Yard Cart ever in the whole wide world. ...
Basketball Polar Bear
I took a trip to San Diego this past weekend for theInternational PRSA conference.Awesome information and great speakers. But, four daysofworkshops, exhibitions, and keynote speakers-- needless to say, it's healthy to take a break! What better place to dojust thatthan the San Diego Zoo!For me, the highlight of the zoo is watching the polar bears. I was so excited to get to the exhibit, only to find him spread out on his belly, fast asleep. After a few minutes of debatingwether or notI should move on,suddenly, heopened his eyes and lumbered over to the pool. Kids and adults alike ran toward the glass, watching with excitement. This polar bear knew exactly what he wanted to do. He swam to one side of the water, grabbed his ball withone humongous paw, and swamto the other side right in front of agroup of children. What happ...
