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.

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.

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.

Internal dimensions?

I assume the listed dimensions (48" x 24" x 28") are the external measurements. What are the internal dimensions of this storage chest?
