The roof and door slip in connections are falling apart. This model has no metal fasteners similar to later models.

    Idk, my mom has one of those too, but so far it's had no problems. I don't know how you could fix something like that.

    If they made metal fasteners for later models, try calling Rubbermaid to see if they can send you a set of them

    easy fix cut a piece of rubber hose and slide it in the holes and put a screww through the hose to hold it in place on top of the door.

      Cool - that worked. Not sure I followed your directions exactly, but so far, so good. I drilled a hole in the "peg" of the door and put a big screw in it. Then I took some landscape tubing and put it over the screw and secured it in place to the roof.

    call the manufacturer. We put cinder blocks either side and them a heavy timber on the roof when ours was failing. a couple years later a friend suggested we could call and get help

    We have a 2 x 4 6 ft tall shed. Our doors, roof & walls came loose and bent a bit by a storm. We had to take the shed apart and put back together however this time we used screws to secure the walls to the floor then roof. The way these are put together it was tricky at times but it worked. Our doors are secure and close tightly. To keep future damage from happening we used watched straps over the top & sides and anchored to the ground.

    Our Rubber maid storage shed is coming apart on the back left seam and the back left corner roof. We are trying to figure out how to fix it.
