Quality: Chandler Truck Accessories' attention to detail starts with the box that contains the "box". Before they are packaged each Chandler Equipment toolbox is wrapped in a self-stick film to reduce the possibility of scratching while being packaged. Then, a 1" thick, high-density, foam block is placed at each corner to protect the highly vulnerable corners. At the same time, those blocks create a 1" space between the toolbox and the shipping box which helps reduce damage from a light bump or the sharp corner of another package shipped on the same truck. While it is virtually impossible to protect a package from being damaged through carelessness in shipping, Chandler's packaging addresses the most common damage-prone areas
Durable: Chandler Equipment's Toolboxes are designed with input from professionals that use under-bed toolboxes, every day, in the roughest environment - oil fields - Chandler Equipment used that input to produce the toughest underbody toolbox you can buy without breaking the budget. Start with robotically welded, .125 thick aluminum for the box, the steps, and the door. Robot welding ensures a consistent weld and the jig mounting keeps the box perfectly square.
Weather Resistant: The design features don't stop with the box itself, though. Instead of inset doors, Chandler Truck Accessories mount the treadplate aluminum doors for an external closure that enables them to build a 360 degree, full perimeter, 1" wide rain gutter so the water washes down and away. Any overflow is kept out by a full perimeter, commercial-grade, replaceable, bulb seal and water-resistance is enhanced further by the twist-to-lock T-Handle latch that pulls the door tightly against the seal. That T-Handle latch is adjustable so it will always pull the door tightly shut even after years of use.
Secure: The T-Handle latch is a heavy-duty, polished stainless steel body with a die-cast, twist-to-open, "T" and a built-in lock cylinder. Its design makes it easy to open with gloves and twisting it closed creates a tight seal between the door and the commercial grade-seal. Rather than weld the handle to the door it is bolted in place with 4 industrial "hucks". Each huck has a pull strength of 3,000 lbs, so you have 12,000 lbs. of protection against any attempt to pry the door open. The position of the hucks is not visible from the outside so drilling, externally, to gain access is virtually impossible.
Convenient: By using hucks for securing the latch and hinges means they are replaceable without cutting and re-welding. If the door should get damaged you just drill out the hucks and replace the door or the hinge in the field and without removing the toolbox. That's a very important feature if your boxes are welded in place. Inside the box, you'll see two 1" holes for draining that spilled oil or hydraulic fluid. Two snap-in plugs are included for easy access and sealing after draining.
