Have milkcrates gotten smaller?

Because the last couple I managed to find were way too narrow to fit my records.

Can anyone suggest some other (inexpensive, preferably free) means of storing vinyl? Right now I have a ton just leaning against a wall - very bad!

No, milk crate haven't gotten smaller, and your vinyl hasn't gotten bigger.

It's just a mystery, up there with the Lock Ness monster, and other whatnot stuff.

i've known about this for a while, but i think its hilarious that they started making narrower milk crates a few years ago to curb the DJ thievery.
smart cookies down there at the milk company!

but yes, they are 2% smaller

is this true for only some milk crates, or is the change homogenized across the milk crate industry?

I believe it was actually back in the 70s they started making them smaller. The only ones that fit records these days are ancient (or recently re-made ala Play De).
