Adrian Steel Double Lid Tool BoxIn the market for a truck tool box?  We’ve put together a Truck Tool Boxes Buying Guide to get you started.

What Type of Lid are You Buying?

The lid on your truck box may warp if you’re not careful.  Unlike lower-grade models, Adrian Steel boxes feature an extra 45-degree bend and double channel reinforcement to add strength and stiffness to the lid.  This prevents warping and assures a snug closure.

Also check to see if your view is obstructed before purchasing.  The low profile on Adrian Steel truck tool boxes allows the driver a less-obstructed rear view.

Is it Easy to Open, yet Secure?

Adrian Steel boxes are equipped with automotive push button rotary latches that open the lids conveniently when your hands are full, while providing increased security when locked.  The push button design has been cycle tested over 25,000 times, ensuring years of trouble free operation.  Heavy-duty gas struts assist in lid operation, and provide years of maintenance-free operation.  A linkage guard protects against linkage damage – no bending, no jamming. The full adjustable intrusion striker keeps the lid closed tight and contents more secure. And the double-sided keys allow for quicker and easier access.

Consider Installation.

Does your truck tool box require drilling into your truck to install it?  Adrian Steel toolboxes are designed to mount to your truck bed with the provided no-drill brackets.  Also included is a closed cell foam tape with an adhesive back for the underside of the toolbox overhang to protect the truck bedrails from scratches.

Are You Getting Any Extras?

Adrian Steel boxes come standard with a sliding, divided tray that can be accessible from both sides of the truck.  It provides convenient storage for smaller items.  Adrian Steel truck boxes also come with a full length rubber liner for the bottom of the box, to keep your tools from sliding around when the vehicle is in motion.

Is There a Warranty?

Will you receive a 3-year, 36,000 mile warranty, professional installation, or exceptional customer service from truck equipment professionals?  Adrian Steel distributors have Certified Technicians and Sales people on staff to help you with all of your truck equipment needs.  If you ever have a problem or question about your Adrian Steel products, they have the experience and knowledge to get the answers you need. Don’t forget:  every Adrian Steel product that is installed by an authorized Adrian Steel distributor comes with a 3-year, 36,000 mile warranty.  You can’t get that just anywhere.
