Installed on company work vehicle and I like the boxes. They were light weight and easy to install. They have decent space for storing all my hardware and tools. And the overall look of the setup looks great. But the issue is I have been locked out more than once with them.
The first issue I have dealt with is there is a slide bar the acts as the locking mechanism for the handles. They are exposed so tools or material can and will get wedged on them. Luckily I am either on a gated construction site or home so I've gotten into the habit of not locking them so I avoid this issue, but leave myself vulnerable to theft.
Next issue is same thing, but for the twist latch for the doors. It's also exposed and can become blocked or wedged by tools or hardware that may shift. This issue is mostly for the upper top box where the handles twist down to shut. I've had a couple different hand tools shift and block the lever enough that I had to get creative to gain entry without damaging the box or my tools.
Both issues could be solved with a decent moulded cover, and I was suprised I couldn't find something already in production as the T-handle component is fairly common.
Third issue was the top locks are angled inward so water was able to seep in and freeze over. Luckily a heat gun and an apprentice was all it took to fix this issue, but a decent flip cover over the locking cylinder would go a long way to prevent this.
And all these issues have only happened to the uppers; lowers seem to be the least problematic handles/lock as the items I have in there I installed with these issues in mind.
