I don't believe any Sterilite storage product contains latex. If you are allergic to latex, I would contact the company directly in order to make sure.

answer 3
Latex (to me) means stretchable or able to give. I would say these do not. They are rigid and thus I would not expect them to give and take to accommodate as in clothing. If I am misunderstanding your terminology, read all of the specifications under the tabs for their answers.

Latex would give me the impression they are stretchable, which these are not. If I am misunderstanding your terminology - I apologize. There is no "give" like in clothing and under garments, which contains latex.

Each item would have the color of which the item will be. In the description it says clear - which is no "Blue Eclipse" - and the "Blue Eclipse" would be on the list of the items that are offered in that color. I would pay attention to the color options prior to being ordered. (to me the colored ones seem more stable and sturdy).

If they are giving you a choice take the color/clear you wish. If it is defaulting to a certain color, evidently that is what they have and perhaps you will need to pick a different color. I would go to the store and see what they have, write the ups number or product number like what they offer online, and see what they are talking about then go home and see if they are offering that specific color on the product page; or ask the sales person to look with you to get specifics.

I would go to the store and purchase one, as the statement on the listing says "set of six" - which means they come in six. It also would not be hard to move a single one, where if you buy several with lids, it turns into a tug of war - and these are all boxed up and no struggle.

They have areas to pick them up, are able to visualize what is in them - as cardboard does not have hand grips or the ability to see what is inside - boxes would be cheaper, generally do not break) where these would if the person moving them is not considerate and would pitch them to the next person. I always preferred the plastic - you can label them and remove the labels and if you write on cardboard, you will need to pitch them when done, as you generally cannot remove labels.

We are moving from NJ to OH, and is the reason why we purchased these containers. They are perfect for so many items, and I love being able to see through them. I anticipate it will be so much easier to unpack in our new home without having to open box after box in order to find what I am after. And it will be easier when we move because I can see what is in each box and place it in the correct room. I would definitely recommend these!!! I started with two sets of six, but will be ordering more as I need them.

only if you put light items in. it can hold a lot, so it gets heavy real fast. i loaded it with towels and it's pretty heavy. you also can't fill it up all the way because the lid will lift up. you'd want to make sure you don't put super heavy stuff on top of it either (like books). so, if you're using it to move a pillow and a few towels (it won't hold more than one pillow) that's fine, but I wouldn't use it to move books and heavier objects

Better because they're transparent, unlike cardboard boxes, and they keep stuff dry if the environment is damp.

I would go to the store and take a small package of file folders to see if it accommodates your needs. I would assume they would, but then I am not looking at one at the moment to give concrete advice. You also would be able to see if the stands that hold the files upright would fit, if you are wanting to add those, too.

answer 3
I haven't opened the box yet, but anything I have seen made in plastic generally has an indentation on the outside bottom areas, which I would assume is to add strength by making them form fitting. These would not be appropriate for cat litter boxes - they seem too tall to accommodate a cat getting in and out. Have you considered getting the cat litter boxes that have the partial top that keeps the litter in and not allowing it to be kicked out the way it can be in a cardboard box?

The bottom of the container has a slight indentation. Plus, the sides of the 66-quart are way too high. I would recommend you do NOT purchase these to be used as a litter box.
