How do you store items safely and tidily when someone else shares your space? The Locking Storage Unit allows you to close your shelves like a book, lock it if you like, and move it to an unobtrusive corner. Or it can stay in place and serve as a table or counter.

  • 28" high units won’t block windows or obscure visibility. 
  • 2" heavy-duty swivel casters are hidden behind the trim, ready to roll when you need more space.
  • Clear, Mirror, or Chalkboard Covers (sold separately) attach to the shelf backing. The Clear Cover covers entire back, the Mirror Cover covers ⅘ of the back, and the Chalkboard Cover covers ½ of the back surface.
  • Connected shelves open into one 96" long unit, then close when playtime is over. 
  • Locking clasps keep everything securely inside. Use any standard padlock.
  • Does not connect to Roomscapes.
