Expert Answers about Trailer Tool Box


  • Weight of DeeZee Specialty Series Underbody Tool Box DZ75
  • The weight is 40 lbs for the DeeZee toolbox you asked about, which is the following part number: - DeeZee Specialty Series Underbody Tool Box # DZ75 This is a smart choice for a tool box as its underbody design allows for out of the way mounting, it locks for security, and is water tight so your cargo is safe from the elements. The only other thing you will need for this tool box is a mounting kit: - DeeZee Mounting Kit for Underbody and Side-Step Toolboxes # DZDB-2502

  • Is Plastic Lock Knob on Thule Force XT XL Flimsy
  • Let's start with the locks, and the locking mechanism isn't flimsy, and keys are definitely not more likely to break in the Thule Force XT XL Rooftop Cargo Box # TH6358B. As for the Yakima box, the mounting procedure will essentially be the same as with the Force XT XL # TH6358B (with the exception of the Force not using the tool to tighten the clamps). Assuming you have some height with the use of something like a step stool # TE97FR, you won't have to go to both sides to tighten the...

  • What to do About Lost Keys for a Delta Pro Tool Box
  • I do have an option for you. But we do not carry any replacement keys for your Delta Pro Tool Box. You would need to change out the lock cylinders with new ones that include new keys. The Camco Cam Lock Set # CAM44340 will likely work, you will just want to verify the dimensions of your lock. The cam lock measures 5/8 inch thick.

  • Is the UWS Truck Bed Chest # UWS01048 Available with a Higher Gauge Aluminum?
  • I have a possible solution for you. Unfortunately, I confirmed with my contact at Curt (the maker of UWS boxes) that the UWS Truck Bed Chest - Wedge Series - Offset Lid - Notched Box # UWS01048 is not available in a gauge higher than 0.63. This particular tool box is the strongest-gauge box we carry for a 2021 Ford F-350 with an 8-foot bed.

  • Is DeeZee # DZ91716 Trailer A-Frame Mounted Toolbox Strong Enough to Stand On
  • The DeeZee # DZ91716 is constructed of .056 aluminum tread plate. Due to the fact that the box isn't very large, the box is pretty rigid but I wouldn't recommend standing on it. We offer another similar box from RC Industries, part # 350970 that's constructed of thicker aluminum tread plate (.072), but they don't recommend standing on it either. We do indeed ship to Canada. If you'd care to see a product description video for either box, click the provided links.

  • Should Junction Box be Used For Adding 7-Way & Wiring to Trailer
  • For adding wiring and a 7-way to your trailer, a junction box and 7-way connector is absolutely the way to go, because it is the easiest way to connect your wiring. The best option for that is the following: - Junction Box - 7 Terminal # 3375601100 - 7-Way RV Style Connector - Trailer End 6 ' Long # HM20086 or 8' Long # H20046 If you need added components for install such as a wire tool, zip ties, circuit tester, butt connectors and more, you may want to consider getting that in one...

  • What Color Will the UWS Badge Be On Their Black Tool Boxes
  • I spoke with UWS and all their black boxes, like the Truck Bed Toolbox - Crossover Style - Low Profile Series - 8.6 cu ft - Gloss Black # UWS00373, will come with the black badge to match the color of the box. Their silver boxes can come with either blue or black badges, but again, black will always be black.

  • Is Access Toolbox Edition # 834532000821 Tonneau Cover Waterproof
  • When installed, the DeeZee # DZ8170DB tool box will sit flush against the front of the truck bed, but will not overhang the front of the bed. There will be a very small gap there that could admit water in a torrential downpour. I'm assuming you're speaking of the Access # 834532000821 Toolbox Edition Tonneau Cover. The cover will fit pretty snug up against the toolbox, but none of the tonneau covers we offer are billed as being waterproof. Even the tightest fitting tonneau can allow water...

  • Recommendations to Assist with Aligning a 5th Wheel Hitch and Trailer King Pin
  • The # KSC088 K-Source backup mirror would work for aligning your fifth-wheel hitch and king pin, but this mirror will only allow you to see a field up to 6' behind the mirror. If your truck has a long bed, you would not be able to see the king pin until you backed up enough to get it into the field of vision for the mirror. The Swift Hitch wireless backup camera # 04928 would work great for aligning your trailer and fifth-wheel hitch. You can mount the camera on any metal surface in...

  • How Many Handles Are on The DeeZee Specialty Series Underbody Toolbox # DZ76
  • I checked with my contact at DeeZee and the Specialty Series Underbody Toolbox # DZ76 that you referenced has two handles, one on each of the shorter sides. This rustproof Brite-Tread aluminum tool box features a locking stainless steel T-handle latch and two keys and a water-tight C-channel seal to protect your belongings. It is USA-made and carries a limited lifetime warranty. Installation requires their universal mounting kit, part # DZDB-2502.

  • Using Thule Insta-Gater Pro on Ford F250 with Tool Box in Bed
  • The Thule Insta-Gater Pro # TH93VR will need to be installed square to the tailgate, but if the back wheel of the bike is shifted to the left or right by a few inches before the hook on the Insta-Gater is ratcheted down, the bike will stay upright for you and should fit just fine. To see a demonstration video featuring the Insta-Gater, click on the provided link.

  • Is DeeZee Combo Auxiliary Tank # DZ92740X Approved For Commercial Use
  • The DeeZee Combo Auxiliary Tank # DZ92740X meets the Federal Department Of Transportation requirements for UN31A and UN31B tanks and meets the Federal Motor carrier Safety Administration Requirements for diesel auxiliary tanks. I did some research online and found that there are several requirements to get the UN31A or UN31B certification. You may want to check with the Department Of Transportation to see if these certifications are good for commercial hauling.

  • Installing a Reese RP30051 On a Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Diesel
  • Reese part # 30051 is a 16,000 pound capacity slider hitch. The slider unit allows 10 inches travel to allow more turn clearance. Fifth wheel hitches are not particularly difficult to install for someone with average mechanical tools and ability. Thanks to custom fit install kits, fifth wheel installation is even easier now than in years passed. If you write back with the model year of your truck, I can help you find a custom fit install kit. These kits include the brackets that attach...

  • Tongue Weight Ratings and Bumps In the Road
  • Yes, when hitch manufacturers set the weight capacities for a trailer hitch they take into account that the load will be on roads where there will be bumps and turns. Tongue weight rating is not a purely static figure. As long as the roads you are traveling on aren't extremely bumpy you would be just fine. If you haven't already you need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine what the manufacturer sets as the max tongue weight. If this figure is lower than the hitch capacity...

  • How Safe is the Steel Strap on the TorkLift Lock and Load Maximum Security Cargo Tray # TLA7752
  • My contact at TorkLift advised that the two-piece adjustable steel security strap on their Lock and Load Maximum Security Cargo Tray # TLA7752 cannot be removed once the straps are adjusted properly to suit the load size and secured with the include lock. Items with a flat top surface, such as a tool box or generator, will rest right underneath the steel strap and so there will be little to no play at all in the straps. This protects the contents from curious hands. Please refer to the...

  • What is the Track System on a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado
  • The track system for Chevrolet is called their Cargo Management System. It is a track system that can be installed as an option from the dealer. The tracks sit just below the truck bed rails on the inside of the truck bed and can support different accessories such as ladder racks and tool boxes. If you do not have any type of rails in the bed of your truck, then you probably do not have a track system. The Access Tonneau Cover, # A22020299, that you referenced can be used with or without...

  • Tool used to Remove the Rivets that Hold the Taillight Assembly on a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • That handy-dandy tool you see in the videos is a trim panel tool. We have # PT73HJ as an option that you could use. I advise against using vice grips as it will tear up the pins. You could use a smaller claw hammer if available. A very small pry bar (crow bar) could work as well. I suppose you could wedge two spoons under it and pry it out that way. Depending on how tight they are you might bend the spoons. If you had a very flat wrench it might work the same as the trim panel tool.

  • Tools Required to Install EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2018 BMW i3
  • The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7277 does rate a 10 out of 10 on our difficulty rating as it is a very in depth installation. It requires removal of the rear bumper cover and trimming of bumper cover, underbody panel and wire harness holder to properly install the receiver. There are several different tools such as a hack saw, coping saw, reciprocating saw, and a jig saw that would allow you to accomplish the cutting required. You will also need a basic set of hand tools...
