Two years ago, I posted an article about the importance of hanging bookshelf. Aside from the convenience of looking for books in the shelf, it could also save you space in your room. This time, I’d like to share with you another hanging thing, ‘the hanging bin’.
Unlike the hanging bookshelf, the hanging bin is an enclosed fixture similar to a cabinet but with lock where one could secure their valuables like money or gadgets. The other name of the hanging bin is an overhead bin since it is usually located in the upper part of an office cubicle, and its lid is usually being moved upward to open the bin.
In my case, we have that overhead bin in our office and like I mentioned, we put our valuables there. However, I just notice a problem with the lid of the bin. Since it could only be opened by pulling it upwardly, the tendency is that, you need to hold it for quite sometime to let you see what’s inside the bin because it doesn’t have a support to just leave a small opening for you to take a peek.
Although, you could completely open the lid of the bin by pushing it upward and sliding it fully on top of the bin but this will widely open the overhead bin. What if you have something confidential inside your bin, I bet you wouldn’t want your officemate to even have a glimpse of it, right? So the best way to address that one is to install a customized lid stay as this will let you control the opening of the lid of the bin.
This will not only prevent accident caused by the lid of the overhead bin but it could also put the handiness of the bin for its user. (AAP)
