Weather Guard has introduced 38 new Saddle and Lo-Side Boxes with an updated appearance and technology to enhance the user experience, the company noted. The new truck tool boxes include one-key simplicity, a high-security locking system, a modernized sloped lid and PowerSync Technology compatibility.
The new Weather Guard Saddle and Lo-Side Boxes incorporate a new push lock, and the 1Key Ultralock combines break-in protection with one key simplicity allowing one key to work across all truck boxes. The new 1Key Ultralock will also enable distributors to serve customers faster with no extended lead times for special fleet orders. The Weather Guard 1Key Ultralock includes a six-plate tumbler that prevents picking and bumping and a large cylinder for added defense. The automotive-grade, weather-resistant shutter helps protect the lock against damage from the elements, the company noted.
The new Saddle and Lo-Side Boxes feature a sleek design with a sloped lid reinforced with a 0.9 aluminum channel, which increases security by fortifying the box and helps prevent break-ins through lid damage. The lid is easier to use, featuring optimized latching systems and requiring less force to close, according to Weather Guard. In addition, all Saddle and Lo-Side truck tool boxes now feature enhanced tie-down buckles offering larger clearance for universal or multiple straps. And, all Weather Guard boxes arrive pre-drilled, simplifying installation for distributors and end-users.
Weather Guard uses a powder coat finish, and the boxes are available in a new color: Gunmetal gray. This is in addition to the current range of colors, including white, gloss black, clear (silver) and textured matte black.
