"Does NOT snap together"
I noticed that it says under the description that they changed this item and its now a different one, and I don't know if its because of that, but this definitely does not snap together. In fact, we had quite a struggle getting it to go together, but after that it was fine. We will see how it holds up.
"Works great for me"
I haven't had trouble with mine cracking. I've left mine out for extended periods of time. The plastic is faded, but not cracked. I like this one better than the top fillers.
After about 2 months of UV rays the plastic starts to break down, becomes brittle & starts cracking. The same thing occurred with the ones used indoors, but it took close to a year for those to break down enough to crack.
