Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water Tight I am using as an outside tool box in the back bed of pick up truck. I purchased the box a couple weeks ago and so far no leaks, and the paint is holding up. More room in this box compared to conventional truck tool boxes.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great job box. Instructions are lacking a little. Great job box. Reasonable price. Instructions are lacking in one tiny place. When assembling u shaped braces for your lock do not tighten, only snug. The lock needs some wiggle room. This may be common sense but this was my first job box & I almost locked myself out of my own box. Other than that, the directions could be better. Great box.

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
