Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Maxdigits 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?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Milwaukeefan Not bad for the price
Wanted a box that matched my Milwaukee tool chest, unfortunately, I could not find one. I saw this box and read the reviews, decided to buy when price dropped. Painted it red and found a decal on eBay, very pleased with price paid but overall finish of this box is poor. Locks used are M5, I find that not completely tightening the u-bolts works best because sometimes the locks stick and need to be wiggled to unlock. Noticeable spot welds on all panels and the HD associate that I asked to un-box it, so I could check for dents, ended up cutting the lid with knife(so I got another 10% off)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debbie Good box, good value, needs a better description of what lock fits.
Good job box for the money, but we experienced the same issue as others getting a lock to fit. Home Depot should carry the proper fitting lock NEXT TO the product. After buying two sets that didn't fit I made Home Depot open a carton, find a lock, and install it to prove it would work. They don't carry a Master Lock #5 as the directions call for. Some people had good luck with the Master Lock MIXT but not all Home Depots carry that model. Don't leave the store until you know the lock you choose will fit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PinballBob2085 Ideal Ammo storage box
If you need a secure large ammo storage box, this is for you. I use GI type steel .50 cal and .30 cal boxes and put them into this box for a highly secure safe enclosure. The weight of a dozen ammo boxes or more will keep anyone from dragging this away and loading into the back of a pickup truck, but you could bolt it down for extra security. The shrouded locks will keep the non-professional thief from getting in, and the steel container will contain any burning ammo from causing injury in case of a catastrophic house/garage fire.
The 48" box will hold 2 rows by 7 boxes of .50 cal boxes, stacked 3 high, less 2 slots due to the lock mechanism intrusion. So, 40 boxes, if you remove the shelf, or some other combination of .30 cal and other types of ammo or guns, gives you very good spacious security. This box is not as good as a good gun safe, and I would not rely on it for outdoor storage, although it has a a water seal, and in dry desert climates might be fine. You will not be disappointed in the quality. Be sure to check the box for dents under the cardboard while in the store, as I bought one that had a serious dent, (returned it) and almost bought one with a small dent, and bought one with a significant scratch on its side.

I bought this box for two reasons. 1. I'm a carpenter and my boss was running out of room for me in his box. No way I was going to leave my livelihood laying around inviting a thief. 2. Guys were using my stuff without asking. I don't need to be tracking my tools all over the job and if someone loses it, misplaces it, or damages it I don't have to be wasting my time looking for it or guessing who did it. The quality of this box is very good and has a handy tray with inserts for smaller tools. Very nice.The paint is excellent and looks like it will last awhile. My only gripe is that it only has 1 hinge. Otherwise I'm satisfied with this purchase. Some people like employers use combination locks for convenience so that multiple people have access but that could end up a 2 edged sword if someone rips you off. And personally my experience with combinations is that they have too many moving parts and are a hassle to unlock some times. I use the Master Lock M5XKAD matched keys one inch space. It has a ball bearing mechanism that's as smooth as silk and fits perfect, with a lifetime warranty. I left out the fact that when you lock it, the shackles are not exposed to cutting, the only exposed part is the key entry, love it. Is it thief proof? Of course not. But it keeps honest people honest. And if someone tries to steel my tools it will make it much harder. Convenient and relatively safe!
