Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sparky18 Great So Far
I've had this tool box for about a month now and it has been great so far. I have not had any problems with the locking mechanism or the key. The mounting equipment provided isn't the best, but it gets the job done, I haven't had any problems with it moving or anything. I have this on a Chevy s10 and it fits great. Overall it's a great tool box, only downfall is that it's pretty small, so if you plan on carrying a lot of tools or material in there, get a bigger box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by honolulu Great Box and great value!
I don't know what everyone is saying about the poor quality of this box. The lock works great. the box is double-walled on the top. nice sliding tool tray. locks on drivers side (you dont have to lock both sides). Only suggestion is to use wider washers when installing the j-bolts (which I did). Foam is high quality and helps keep the lid snug. Don't let anyone sit/stand on the lid - if you misalign it you will have lock alignment issues. This box is A+ . By the way I have a 2016 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab 5ft bed. Fits like a charm!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cthorn Box quality is 5 but locking mechanism is just a 1
There was no way to lock the box. First of all I had to adjust the latches to hold the lid shut. I could shut the lid but lift it without touching the handle. I called for Technical support thinking they would have the info online they did not. The first picture show how the locking mechanism came, the U-shaped part that is turned by the key could not swing up to lock the box. As you can see there is another part in the way keeping it from working. I called and got customer service and she was wonderful but she could get no help from the technical department, so I figured it out the next day after no one called me back. She said someone would call me back and it has been 9 days. I have been working and unable to call back till today and had to leave a voice mail about my problem. I have a temporary work around but can only open the box from the passenger side unless I hand manipulate the locking mechanism on the driver (locking) side of the box. The second picture shows how I had to bend the locking mechanism to allow it to lock. It also shows the part that does not return after opening that will not allow me to unlatch from the driver side. The box I purchased could not have gone through a final inspection process or if it did no one was checking it.
Lid would not firmly latch
Lock could not physicals move to locking position.
Customer support did return my call this morning and suggested I return the box for a replacement. My closest Home Depot is over an hour away and would require me to take time away from work, money out of my pocket, so I said I would just make do.
The size, quality of the box is perfect and gets a 5. The lock and technical service gets only a 1.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mww567uu Needs to perform properly right out of the box.
I knew this was a lower end box, but wow the locks and latches should at least work. Lid did not want to stay closed, I could pop it open with just a lite push. I had to adjust latches so the lid would stay closed. Waiting to see if it will pop open while driving. I use my truck for work and I get in the tool box often and I need to know that its secure when I walk away. But because the locks are so poorly made I'm afraid that it will fail and I won't be able to unlock it like the box this one was supposed to replace. Which is a different brand sold by a different big box store.

Some peopke have complained about the mounting hardware that comes with the box, and i admit, the mounting hardware does suck. EASY FIX: line up your box till you are satisfied it is centered, then simply drill 2 or 3 self tapping screws on each side of the box, down into the sides of the bed walls that are supporting the box. I used this same box in my 2008, and 2016 tacoma. 3 minutes install time.

Great toolbox for the money, fit perfectly in my little Nissan pick up truck. Didn't like the J hooks it came with. Went a head and drill two holes and put bolts to hold it down. The locking mechanism is OK, it's not professional but it will do the job. Put some graphite in the lock works nice and smooth. Anybody can pop the lock just be smart and take your tools in at night.

I purchased this box about two months ago. I went to open the box with the key and discovered the box was already open. Upon further investigation I discovered that the screw holding the locking mechanism to the lock was very loose. I tried to tighten the screw but it fell off. Only 1/4 inch screw and should be longer. I tried putting the locking arm back on but with no avail. Nothing seems to line up properly. In my opinion it's a poor locking mechanism. No help on line or from HD.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scooter Good choice for the money.
Strong lid, installed easily. I lubricated the locking mechanism after the install. It comes dry and needs this. I don't regret purchasing this.
