      Comments about Matthews Half Apple Box:

      These are quality items that are solidly built. We considered having our own UCLA facilities department construct these items, but were happy to find these items at B&H. They would have likely cost us more to have them constructed. These look like they'll last us a long, long time.

      It's support a truck - and because it'll support a truck don't expect it to be light weight. And, yes - it's easy to use.

              Mostly for studio setup, to build anything, lighter than a brick, as reliable as a basic tool.

              We beat the heck out of these Apple boxes. If you are in the industry then you know that Matthews is the name in the business. Why buy anything else when it comes to solid grip gear that you know will hold up.

                  These are wonderfully constructed and I'm sure will last for a very long time. Glad I ordered the Matthews.

                      well built - unfinished though, so you may want to stain it if you use it outdoors or in messy locations

                        An Apple Box is a simple thing - either it's well made and works, or it's not - these are the real deal, I own half a dozen or more, they do they're supposed to.
