Where can I get the wheels that would fit this box ?

Asked by: Neyup
They are a special 3"x3" that is recommended so you have to go with them and buy about $40 in hardware. I made HD supply it free.

48 in. x 24 in. Universal Storage Chest is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 58.
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 bought this box because it showed a nice tray laying length ways in the box. I picked it up at the store and got it home to find a cheap plastic tray that lays the short way in the box. If you show a picture of the product that how it should be when you get it home. Other than that, its fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a good box but. I bought this box to keep my tools on a CA prison project safe. After purchasing set of 2" locks that were to long when I bought the box,(store employees had no idea what they handed me.) I went back after reading the insert and could only find locks in 1", 1 1/2 ", or 2" non of them fit. So to make it the 1-1/2 fit, without having to pry it open like I did with the 1" I had to reshape the one side with a hammer to be able to make it close...somewhat I can still yank it open. This might not be suck a big deal but I'm not able to easily go and come from the prison as I please to go chasing locks around not to mention the prison is in the middle of nowhere. So now my tools are only as secure as the inmates because I've got no way to lock it until I find the magic locks needed what is it? 1-3/16? Where do they sell that?

It will not come with inside tray. Deceiving. If you buy the recommended wheels they will also NOT WORK. Self threading bolt will not work in "too large of" holes. Cost me $40 extra for additional bolts. When I went bad to the store they were aware of the issues but did nothing to correct the web site or raise internal questions on the wheels. Disappointed in quality of services.

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.

I brought a Ridig storage for a project I was in charge of a few years and I loved it. After reading the reviews on this box I decided to get it. Was not happy with HD because they had no price on line and said I had to order it but when I went to the store there were over 20 in the store. Made the purchase took it to the job site and love it. It's heavy without tools in it and was real heavy after we loaded up the tools. I tried breaking into it which find it to be almost impossible for that to happen. Felt much more comfortable leaving my tools on the work site.

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.
