Foldable Storage

These robust, collapsible storage containers slim down to a thin, foldable layer. CleverMade’s durable baskets, crates, and coolers are sneaky helpers—taking up minimal space when they’re empty. Functional and space saving, CleverMade crates can hold lots of weight and give you a good hold on anything from bulk shopping to sports gear. Their baskets pop up to hold your groceries and don’t spill or tear like reusable bags. And their clever cooler keeps your drinks cold up to 36 hours then flattens into a three-inch sheet you can slip in anywhere. Load them up with groceries, pack for a tailgate, or prep for a trip to the park—then collapse and lock. Keep them in the car or closet and they’ll stay undercover.

    I noticed on the video that you have a wheeled base that the crates were stacked on in the garage scene. Is this something you will be offering for sale?

    @Mary You're ahead of your time! Collapsible crates have been extremely popular in Europe for many years. Our goal has been to expand and improve the category and make it more readily available to American consumers.

    Hi Mary, then you must know more than most how great they are. There are collapsible crates on the market, but CleverMade is making them more accessible and funtional. Many of our products are taking an idea that has existed and improving it. CleverMade falls into that category and with their collapsible cooler and basket, creating categories of their own.

    @Danielle : Yes - The crates stack when open and when collapsed. There is not a lid option however when stacked, the bottom of the top crate can serve as the lid / top for the bottom crate.

    Is there a solid, firm bottom in the basket and the cooler? If yes, what is it made of?

    Hi Janet, yes it does and the material is a hard but slightly flexible plastic.
