OK. I read ALL the reviews. Didn't take a chance with the recommended Master Locks. Went with the Master Lock M1XT - Home Depot SKU: # 144-883 $15.48 for two. PERFECT fit. Be sure to attach the locks with the two small U-Bolts that come zip-tied to the inside tray. And no one talked about anchoring the box ... You can use 3/8" x 3" Galvanized Carriage Bolts or 1/2" x 3" Galvanized Carriage Bolts - there are holes for both. I used 1/2" and put a single bolt in each of the 4 legs welded to the bottom. I was impressed with the thickness (gauge) of the metal - excellent. This is a great box for the money, and it's been recently reduced to $249 - an even better deal. AND you can get the military discount if you qualify. NOTE: with the lid fully open it requires about 49" from floor to top of lid (that's pretty close, if not exact). I put mine in the back of my old pickup with a camper shell. I'm going to use treated 4x6s to raise the camper shell 5.5" so I can get the lid all the way open. Easier than using a stick to prop it open each time, and more head room in my camper. Mine didn't have any dents, but come on guys - it's a TOOL box - it's meant to get banged around.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GoodDeal Really good product
I bought this box and mounted it in concrete. The steel body is strong, particularly the lid. I was worried about that because many of the other brands I looked at were kind of cheap. The mechanism holds the lid up well when open, and the weather stripping is perfect. The paint finish is thick. The suggestion for the M1XT Masterlock was great. This lock really needs to be 1 inch when closed to work. The M1XT fills the recess for the latch well. I really wanted a 4 pack, but I found two packages with the same key code number giving me 4 altogether. I comparison shop, probably too much. Under $300 for this box is a bargain. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Well.... Took me a whole day and 3 stores to find one that wasn't dented. I found one finally, took it home and affixed the recommended #5 master locks. Guess what? Yep one of the locking hooks is out of spec and it absolutely will not open. One side was sticky without the locks but now it's useless as I cannot get inside. 2 stars is generous being that it is of no use to me at all and considering how much time I've put into what should be a simple purchase. I like it better than the Klein but this is really aggravating!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SuperHoun if the upper shelf only came with more deviders.
I like the upper self, just like to have more deviders other than that this is a good box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToolAddiction Was an obvious choice for quality, size, reputation, and affordability!
Only thing I can say to people looking to buy is; before you pay for box inspect it first for dents! Not fun getting a 150 pound job box home only to bring it back for replacement. Luckily I listened to another's revue so it didn't happen to me but did see allot that were damaged. Hence the reason for a good rating on durability rather than excellent. However Not the fault of the manufacturer but by the stores employees stocking them with forklifts 25 feet up on a shelf!
Though I listen to reviews, I also listen to the manufacturers recommendations and used #5 Master locks. They worked just fine with no problems experienced.
I was however missing the parts bag to secure locks to the box, so make sure you check for it when purchasing. I do have to acknowledge the manufacturers customer relations department it is like no other! I expressed my issues and I had parts in my hand the next day! Amazing!
In contacting them I did find that the boxes are manufactured by Knack for Ridgid. A leading company in manufacturing quality jobsite storage boxes! Double win as far as I'm concerned!!
Overall I'm very pleased with everything I came away with and would highly recommend this to everyone without hesitation.
