                I found it prudent to set aside a certain category for those things that reach so deeply and so successfully into first principals that one's trust in them is absolute. Among them are Renzetti vises, Swarovski optics, brown trout, the Grateful Dead...and Blue-wing Olives... -Ted Leeson

                    Thanks, WCbad!!

                    Yeah, those locks, I feared they would be problematic, which is why they've been eliminated in the new design.

                    Even with the ones I've been checking with a lock, it's really just as easy to put on a glove and reach in from the top. Wish we really woulda known that before we went with those locks. Oh well, live and learn!!

                    Thanks! Keep those reports coming!!

                          Thanks for checking my bins, Steve. I planned to get to them this weekend. Did you have any problem with the lock at #5? It was sticking in mid-July but finally closed.

                            I've just resorted to the old " shove your arm down in there" routine for those bins. That one at 5 is a bit of a challenge, but if one takes his fishing bucket over there and turns it upside down to stand on, it works out.

                            Most of the time, it's just as easy to get the stuff out from the top. Gloves are a must!!
