If you’re weighing tool box options for your pickup, Dee Zee has a feature-packed proposition you won’t be able to pass up.
Well known for manufacturing a wide variety of truck accessories, including bed rails, running boards, bed mats, grille guards, mud flaps, and more, Dee Zee also produces a lineup of tough, good-looking tool boxes. With its new Padlock Tool Box, Dee Zee is offering a veritable fortress for your truck bed.
Made from a single sheet of aluminum with full seam welds, the Padlock Tool Box features 20% thicker aluminum—you’ll see and feel the difference immediately.
Inside, a patented security mechanism nests a padlock into the side of the box, making it impossible to reach the shackle with bolt cutters. You can choose your own 1” shackle lock or even use your own truck key with a BOLT Padlock. This sophisticated mechanism learns the pattern of your truck’s ignition key—which now opens your tool box! (Padlocks sold separately.)
How does this make this box more secure? By requiring 2.5 times more pry force to open the lid compared to standard tool box latches. The patented slide surrounds heavy-duty striker bolts to keep the lid closed with a single moving part. The lid strikers are integrated into the lid to avoid weakened weld points. No more parts wearing out—and most importantly, no more intruders into your tool box, including rain.
- Internal bends add superior body strength.
- Automotive-grade rubber bulb seal resists the elements.
- Dampened gas shocks hold the lid open 90 degrees.
- Full-length hidden hinge.
- Double V-pan lid stiffener creates strength and rigidity.
- Customizable metal tool tray keeps smaller items organized.
- Available in Deep and Wide models for extra storage space.
- Made in the USA.
- Backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
