Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t buy I bought this box because I have known a few folks who have used them over the years and they never had any problems. The one I bought fills up with water while it’s shut soaking everything in it. I spent a lot of money on this box to keep my expensive tools dry and if can’t even hold up to a little rain shower. Also it took 2 hours of adjustments to make the recommended “Master Lock no. 5” to lock properly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use the OS Box as a tool box it is great but wish there were accessories to organize your tools. I love everything about the box just wish I didn’t have to make my own dividers, shelves, hangers etc...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly constructed Receiving area for locking hook on one side was welded too low. Hook did not engage properly to receive padlock. Weather stripping was mounted in properly also preventing lid from closing properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good design and construction The storage box I purchased looks good and is well built. Everything fits like it's supposed to, and works well. The welds look good and the steel is relatively heavy duty. I like the gasket around the lid, the locking arrangement, and the gas spring. The spring doesn't do much to help lift the lid when you first open it, but as it gets a little higher the gas spring does seem to help. The locking arrangement looks very secure and takes up very little storage space inside the box. Overall it's a very nice, lockable storage box.

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.

Can I get an additional orange flexi shelf for the 2048-OS JOB BOX?

Asked by: wrldltravler
The part number is 7650 but please take note that a 2048-OS cannot accommodate 2 Flexi-Shelf’s as the box is designed that way. Thanks, RIDGID

Where can I purchase the 2048-OS?

I can't find anywhere that has the 2048-OS, Home Depot shows it as unavailable, but they only have the 48R-OS, which does not have the rear tray.
Asked by: Rodrigo
Unfortunately the 2048-OS has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase.
