Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomeness This gang box is perfect for holding all my tools and gear at home. Love knowing all my tools are fully secured and keeping the robbers out! Plenty of room, love the net storage also! Highly recommend

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Latches hit locks and feet are not level The latches for the locks are too far forward and hit the locks. I had to pry out 2 brand new locks to get the box open. That was the first box I returned. The second box I returned because it did not sit even close to level. The third box I got, which is the box I settled with, still doesn't sit level and the latches still hit the locks. I'm very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like orange I like the color and this truck or job site box is doing a good job for me. I bought this box fron Home Depot and requested that they fit it with a set of Master locks while it was still in the store. It took three tries to get a set of locks that worked. If this box is what is needed, let the selling store fit it with a set of locks before you commit to buy. I don’t understand why Ridgid does not provide a set of locks with the box. If they did, it would elliminate the hassle of having to do it yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best box I’ve ever owned Box fit the description on Home Depot’s website to a tee!! Great box my only regret is that y’all don’t put the flexi shelf in them anymore! So I built one of my own! Box is well built but I wish the craftsmanship in the QC was better have a few pieces of buckshot from the welders leftover under the paint. Overall still a great box

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and easy to use I love this job site tool box. It has a net in the lid which helps hold items well. it also has a removable small tool tray. It comes in handy holding everyday items as well. I would recommend this item to anyone looking for a job site tool box. My only problem with it is the locks can take extra time to lock from time to time. Future models could come with built in locks and work much easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly for what I needed I was in search of a lockbox for my business for UPS, FedEx, etc could drop packages in when I'm not onsite. Everything I found either cost too much or had way too many features for what I needed. Finding this was a God send. Not only was the price fair but it was perfect for what I needed it for. It's very heavy duty and so far it seems to keep the weather out. My only issue with this box is with the lock(s). For it to work smoothly I've had to do some grinding on the lock and the latch. Finding a combination lock that fit properly was a little bit of a challenage but I think that would be the same with any lockbox. It would be nice if they offered a version that had the lock(s) built-in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so so much stronger and more room than traditional truck tool boxes. Steel construction makes it so much better than the traditional aluminum truck box. Love that the legs came with pre-drilled square (carriage bolt) holes for easily mounting to my truck bed. Can't beat the lock system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks in the rain and no support for missing parts I wrote customer service last week because I'm missing the tray inside and received no response. It also leaks when it rains which I was told it wouldn't do. The locks are a little funky but work well once adjusted just right. I own other Ridgid tools that I like very much so this is disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This box is very roomy. I have this gangbox mounted in the back of my truck in place of a tool box. It has out done my expectations. It's subjected to water/rain I've had no leaks or I'll effects. The 2048 has been in my truck just over a year now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be a great product, can easily go from job site to the back of your truck for quick transit. I like how weather tight the lid closes. This 2048 size box is my primary choice for quick jobs. I use the #5 style combo locks on all job boxes so none of my workers have to worry about keeping up with keys. I installed 2 battend powered bright LED lights with notion sensors so you can see your tools in low light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great box. The box is a little tall for a small pickup but just right for a full size pickup. This would be a great solution for someone that the over the bed typical toolbox just doesn't cut it. Loads in and out easily and could be left at the jobsite for safe tool storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jobsite box and does the job. Love this box. Plenty of room and great storage. The eels look like quality compared to all the boxes I looked at. The only think I wish is that there was another tray other than the plastic one. Maybe a metal one that sits a little lower. Other than that, thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great box. Needs more tray space. I love the box but it either could use a bigger tray or more than one. The plastic sliding tray that is.
Date published: 2016-11-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for securing more than just tools This box is a good alternative to storing valuable items. Since most gun safes, even top name brand, take 5 minutes or less to get into, why spend $1000 dollars for the same volume of storage. Also since storage is horizontal instead of vertical, it is a more efficient use of this space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Built A much better unit than the Kobalt version. Well constructed. Has a punch-out for an electrical cord for dehumidifier or heater element if desired. Great weatherstripping and seal around the lid. Full width tray to hold tools or whatever above what is stored below. No weight capacity limit for chest. The other brand does not have these features. I use it for secure storage inside my garage. I wanted a top sliding tray, but Ridgid had metal stops on the side ledges to prevent the tray from sliding during movement. No problem. I inserted some metal spacers on the ledges and then glued an aluminum angle bar on top, so now the tray slides smoothly front to back, so I can access items in the bottom rear without lifting out the tray. The dual padlock recesses offer enhanced security. Easy-open lid. Great product for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small issue with lock Lock size reccomended should say 1 inch and nothing smaller I had to tear my box up trying to get it unstuck with a lock I got which was the minimum size recommend. I only got the size because they didn't have the 1 inch master lock I wanted. Other than that my box is great I would definitely recommend it to others, but will definitely advise them to buy the 1 inch lock so it clears when opening the box once unlocked.

I could not find casters with the proper bolt pattern so I purchased and installed heavy duty casters but was only able to bolt two bolts per caster.

Has anyone only used two bolts per caster and if so did it ever become a problem?
Asked by: RichSKi
Knaack casters are designed for the Ridgid boxes. We have not tested any other casters.

What are the specs for a lock? Size? Shackle length? Model?

I am currently using Knaack boxes and their locking mechanism is a PITA, so I'm switching to RIDGID. I hope the lock install and use is easier.
Asked by: TinMan4300
We recommend either a Master Lock #5 or an American Lock #50 with a 1" shackle height.

How do you bolt on casters through the solid skids on older versions of this box?

I have an older version of this box and need to put some caster wheels on. I can see the holes but can't get to the inside of the skids, as they are welded shut. What's the best way to fix the caster wheels to the skids?
