truck tool box

What do you carry in your truck tool box?  If you’re like most working professionals, the tools you transport are not only expensive, but also essential to your day-to-day activities.  Because your cargo is so vital to your livelihood, you must choose a tool box with care.

Truck tool boxes go wherever you do, so they must be durable enough to withstand harsh weather conditions, secure to protect your valuables, and long-lasting to keep up with you.

What’s Your Tool Box Made Of?

The construction of your truck box will reveal whether it’s quality or not.  If your box is made from inexpensive plastic, it may not last as long, or be able to endure as much, as one that’s made from aluminum.  Plastic is easily damaged from weather conditions as well as the tools inside the box.

Adrian Steel’s tool boxes are fully welded, to ensure rigidity, durability, and strength.  These truck boxes work as hard as you do! Adrian Steel tool box lids are made from heavy-duty .080” diamond tread aluminum, and the baskets are .063” diamond tread aluminum.

Is Your Tool Box Weatherproof?

Your tool box holds your tools and other equipment, so it must be weatherproof.  If it’s not, your tools could be damaged by water and rust.  Protect your tools from changing weather conditions, with a tool box that has a seal around the lid.

Adrian Steel tool boxes feature a reinforced “U” channel edge that adds structural strength to the box, as well as more lid seating surface.  A unique bulb weather seal keeps out water and dirt.

Can You Open It with Your Hands Full?

You need a tool box that is secure, yet convenient and easy to operate.

If your hands are full, Adrian Steel’s double-sided key makes it easier for you to unlock the toolbox. Our tool boxes also have push-button rotary latches that allow for quick and convenient access to the toolbox.

What is the Cargo Carrying Capacity?

Adrian Steel cross boxes are designed with a wide 20” basket for increased cargo capacity.
