Stack-On Step N Stor Industrial Step Stool/Toolbox - 20in., Model# SS-20
Stack-on tool box not the same quality
I bought one of these boxes in 1994 it has been incredibly durable. Others on my crew have asked where they could get one like it. I found this on line and purchased 8 of them, one for myself and each of my crew. After just 3 weeks 2 have broken legs and one had the entire bottom of tool storage area fall out. This has been quite discouraging since my original box has been through much rougher treatment, all four legs are still intact. The only complaint with my original is that the latch has worn out from 18 years of repeated use. So the bottom line is that what ever changes in the manufacturing of this little tool box were, from my experience they didn't work. I am a High Voltage Cable splicer and the original version of this box has been the envy of my peers because of it size, use as a step and use as a seat for working in manholes. I wish that the new version had performed as well. My crew was so happy to get these boxes until the started breaking.

Good toolbox / step
I already had one of these and bought another one. The slightly spread make it a very stable step, which is how I mostly use it. Being able to store tools is an additional benefit.

STEP-N-STORE Mdl SS-20
Purchased as an on the go step and storage for electrical wiring repair on trucks and trailers. One unit has led to three for pneumatic repairs and hydraulic repairs. We have misused this item to the point we should have crushed them, not a deformity in any unit. Much tougher and handier than originally thought. Often tortured and not a failure in 5 years, looking at two more.

This item is very well built and stable. It is the right height as a stepstool to reach items just out of my reach and the right height as a seat to work on knee high or waist high projects.

Stack-On Step N Stor Industrial Stepstool/Toolbox
The Stack-On Step N Stor Industrial Stepstool/Toolbox is a great product for work or for home. Its great for reaching the back of those top shelves that are hard to reach. The Stack-On Step N Stor also has a deep compartment that holds everything you need for cor cleaning around the house(it can fit a full size windex bottle thats how deep it is). I have not found any problems with mine and am thinking about getting another one.

Don't be home without it!
I use one of these stools for work and in my home... One stays in the kitchen and is used by myself to sit on for deep cleaning low and reaching the top shelf in my cabinets, also handy for hanging holiday decore outside. My 10-yr old uses it to step up to put away dishes and watch me cook, and my cat uses it to post up...ready for food!! I also use it at work, and provide it for all my staff. We are in-store merchandisers and have to work low and high, and also have different tools, cleaning supplies, keys, cell phones, money, etc. that is secure in this stool. It is so sturdy and doesn't slip on flooors. The only drawback for this stool is if you happen to leave the handle in the upward position and sit on it! I have to question the user, not the stool though...however, as far as I know, the handle is not available anywhere as a replacement part and you suddenly lose a lot of it's worth by not having it, along with a sore backside!

Store & Step
This item is the best! I have ordered several over the years for our Merchandisers to utilize during cosmetic resets! They are durable, lightweight, priced right and very user friendly! I would recommend them to everyone!
We used to order this similar item from Rubber Maid however they discontinued theirs. Please do not discontinue this item!

We use this step stool for our horse business. We store many of the items needed for a horse show in the storage area. We use the step for a mounting block for our taller horses. It is very handy both at shows and at home. The step is very tough and holds up well to being banged around a little by working with animals.

Great Step Up!
Bought this to replace old (and broken) cheaper step up. Was thrilled with the quality and tough heavy-duty construction for a heavy-duty guy. Solid legs and non-slip top. Perfect step up for those jobs that need just a little lift up without getting out the ladder. Easily stores items including spray bottles upright--no more leakage. Everyone should own one. Shipped fast from Northern Tool. Highly recommended.
