Better Built
I bought better built products in the past, they were made in the USA. This box is made in Mexico which ok that's fine, but it's welds were burned through creating through holes. I called better built. They said just take it back to the store. Poor quality, poor customer service for better built.

    I am only beginning to weld and my welds are better than the ones on this box. Clearly It is clear that they did not have the temperature high enough when the did the inner seams, than way too high when they did the actuator bracket as it all but through the metal. I'll keep it, as it not worth the hassle to send it back, but I will be grinding, welding, and reinforcing this thing to get it to where I need it to be. If you're looking for a little do it yourself project this is the box for you. If not go elsewhere.

      In the words of some others; this thing is smaller than I imagined. Nevertheless, I was going to be okay with that, until I went to place it on the A-frame. Despite my measurements from the website, as well as the A-frame, I was wrong. The angle of the box barely aligns with the inside edge of the A-frame. Only one bolt could possibly engage; leaving the flanks and front, unsupported. If you have the right size of a frame; then you'll be good. I'm planning on returning mine to the local Home Depot store.

        Nice aluminum trailer box.
        Very good product for the price, was delivered on time. Fit trailer well. Was one of very few lower profile boxes available.

        Great purchase. Very happy with the box.
        The toolbox is light grade aluminum but definitely worth buying if you don't need the heavier gage metal. I'm using it on my trailer for storage and as long as no one sits on it, it should work out great. Didn't want to spend $400 or more just to store the straps & misc. gear.

        Excellent
        Box fits my trailer nicely. Excellent price and easy to attach. I used two pieces of 2" channel iron cut to fit under the upper lip of the trailer frame rails (side to side). I drilled two bolt holes thru each piece (4 total) and bolted the box to the channel iron thru those holes. That basically clamped the box to the upper lip of the frame rail so I didn't have to drill or weld on the trailer frame. Had to put some temporary washers under the trailer jack to improve the clearance of the jack handle over the top of box. It missed it without the washers but not by much. I plan to install a spacer plate to replace the washers. I drilled 1/4" holes in each bottom corner of the box to drain any water that may accidentally get inside it. Shouldn't happen but you never know.

        Just what I was looking for
        I needed an aluminum tool box for my utility trailer that would not interfere with the tongue handle. I liked the diamond plate construction that matches my trailer. The opening shock rod is another plus I was not expecting. Also, the price was much better than others I was looking at. If you need a storage/tool box for your utility trailer, I don't think you will find a better value.

            The box is fairly nice overall, but a little flimsy feeling when you open and close the lid. Also, the lock feels like a cheap lock (I'm sure it is) and the key is difficult to insert into the slot.

            It should work for what I need, could be built with a little heavier material.

            Thin , very thin.
            I purchased it evenbknowingvthere was alot of bad reviews as I didn't have many options for my intended use. The thickness of the aluminum is extremely thin , on the one I received the welds were better than I was expecting compared to some reviews. The is definitely blemishes on the sirface. It was the cheapest one i could find from many seller. The lid does shut nice and is adjustable. All in all for what I paid it was the best choice I could take a chance on. It should not be called BETTER BUILT cause it's not , if they would actually use decent material to start with it would be of decent quality. I feel fortunate I received something decent compared to alot of reviews I read before purchasing it. Buyer be ware , if your expecting top quality and finish you should not purchase this box and look at us if money is not an issue.

              The box was perfect size. It was installed on a 83"X14' utility trailer. Only thing I would like to have seen in this product is a more gradual slope of the sides that follow tounge frame. This box is sloped a like too much and comes inside the frame at front, but is perfect fit to frame at the back.

              Having a name better built is kind of funny because it could be better built. My only complaint is that they should use thicker gauge aluminum in the construction of it. Sure it would cost a little more but it would be much sturdier for throwing heavy duty chains and binders into for the trailer.

              The product arrived on time. The exterior package was damaged. However, the secondary packaging was intact. The tool box would have received 5 stars but the material is extremely thin. I installed the tool box and had to add a plywood to prevent denting the bottom.
