For years, I've been driving around with a couple plastic milk crates in my trunk. They held a toolkit, emergency lamp, some cloth towels and one of those air pumps you power via the car's cigarette lighter. This arrangement suited me just fine until I bought a hatchback; every time I hit a bump or took a curve at speed I'd hear those crates sliding around, bumping into each other and whatever else I've got stowed back there, including my subwoofer. So, I figured it was time for a more modern storage solution.This one was a fine choice. It's roomier than you might guess -- about 12" x 12" x 21", assembled. It comes in 4 sections; stretch out the main body to full length, then place the stiff bottom liner inside that. The other two pieces are optional, forming up to 3 compartments. Goes together in just a few minutes with no tools, but given there are no instructions assembly is trickier than you might guess. If you accidentally flip around the center divider, then the flexible third section can't be attached (see my photos).So far, so good. No more noises under the hatch and it holds everything I had in the crates. Seems very secure, too; I can easily lift the whole organizer and pull it out using the attached handle-straps. Tho' this is not exactly what I'd call a sparkling example of budget engineering -- that stiff middle divider section is very slightly misaligned, relative to dead-center -- but overall, I think it's a great deal for the money. Only time will tell the story on durability, but for most use-cases you can't go wrong at this price.
Before I purchased this car trunk organizer, my grocery bags would always topple over while driving home from the store. Now that I have this organizer, I've had no issues with grocery bags falling over during transit.Some notes:1) I do not use the dividers because they make it more difficult to place the bags in my car, and without the dividers, I can fit four grocery bags instead of three.2) As a non-hatchback car owner, it is still a little bit tricky to place grocery bags in the trunk of my car, even with this organizer. I still need to pull the wall of the organizer towards me in order to temporarily enlarge the gap between the organizer and the top of the trunk, but this minor inconvenience pails in comparison to not using an organizer at all.With all of that being said, this product has been phenomenal, and if your groceries constantly topple over in the car, I'd highly recommend this product!
This product went in the trunk of my wife's car. She wanted an organizer but thought many of them looked "cheap." I said, "It's in the trunk of your car. What does it matter?" Well, it matters and this product looks goo and does the job.The rating are based on its abilities to handle groceries, detergent, wine, ballet dance bags, shopping bags, grandkid toys. I wouldn't use it to contain concrete blocks or bags of river rock or mulch but it wasn't designed for those purposes. For the quality and price this is hard to beat. The anti-slip velcro on the bottom is a bonus if you have a carpeted trunk liner.
