I bought the Argos larder in the end. Seems quite sturdy. There is no door, as was previously stated, but I might add one with some velcro. The bars across the bottom are a bit of a pain -especially as mine wouldn't fit as the screw hole was twisted- however, it seems perfectly secure without the bars. Just as well as screwing them in is a pain!!

Put the screws in loose at both ends , once they have started tighten them up. The Allen key stays in the plastic bag & lives in one of the side pockets, not lost it yet in 3 years. Only thing we changed was 2 pieces of 1/4" MDF to replace the shelves.

Thanks for the advice but the bar welded to the legs is not straight so the screws won't engage with the separate bar. I could probably take it back but I think they are now out of stock locally. As I said, the bars don't seem necessary anyway.

How would you suggest to add the door with velcro - might try too?

I hadn't really thought it through yet but I have a couple of ideas.

You could cut a piece of fabric big enought to cover the hole and a bit more all round. This piece of fabric could be stitched across the top so it hangs down and covers the hole. Some ties could be stitched in too so it could be rolled up out of the way when in use. I would then put Velcro round the other three sides. Either stitched on or self adhesive. Thinking about it, you might only need smaller strips of Velcro to hold it in place. However, I suppose it wouldn't be insect proof unless the Velcro went all the way round.

Other thought is to use the fly screens you can buy for windows. These are basically netting that you cut to size and lots of Velcro. The netting sticks directly to the Velcro. This would be quick, easy and fly proof! And I have some in my garage!!

Maybe best of all would be a combination of both. The fly screen and fabric flap stitched across the top, Velcro round the edge to hold the fly screen and maybe smaller spots of Velcro to hold down the fabric flap.

That was off the top of my head! Any refinements gratefully accepted.

Just run a drill through the holes in the bar & gently lift the drill to make the holes into slots so the screws will line up
