    Q:Is this thing weatherproof as far as rain is concerned if I leave it outdoors
    by|Nov 8, 2022

    Answer This Question

    A:  My company owns three of these boxes and we are very happy with the performance. They are weathertight.

    by|Nov 10, 2022

      A:  This box does not come with a weather strip, as the overlapping lid design is specifically engineered for weather resistance and prevents rain, sleet, snow, etc. from entering the storage box.

        A:  There is a rubber seal but not sure if windy rain would stay dry?

        by|Nov 9, 2022

          A:  Yes, it is weatherproof

          by|Nov 14, 2022

            A:  Yes it has a rubber seal around the lid. I leave mine in my truck at most jobsites

            by|Nov 13, 2022

              A:  The tools will be protected but the hinges of the toolbox rusted within 3 months while being kept outdoors. Also, some of the welding tacks broke off where the hinges are.

                    Hold all my saws
                    I needed a box I could put in the back of my trouble truck that would hold all of my saws. This works great. The box is built well but I’m still not entirely satisfied with the locking system. Disappointed it didn’t come with the tray though.

                      Home Depot needs to have a long talk with Ridgid/Knaack about these boxes
                      When I finally saw that these were in stock at a HD an hour away..I thought..."Why not?"...They had plenty in stock. Easy to load and the price was right. That's about all that went right was the service. First off, it looks like Knaack(they make these boxes in Mexico BTW) uses "learning welders". There's no way any company lets a product ship with the kind of issues this box had and not know it. The welds are a little over done. Spatter isn't that terrible. The welds are the real issue with this box. The right lock bar that hold the lock in place when its locked were welded onto the wrong place. One was bent to the right and a 1/4 inch in the wrong direction. The hook part that locks the Lock in place hits the lock box where the padlock goes. Easy to tell cause you can see where it takes the paint right off. The left side Lock Box was welded into the right place but "forward" of where it needed to be...The hook part scrubs the front of the Lock Box and just takes the paint right off of both. With time I imagine it will wear itself down to a non-issue. You'd think these welders would have a template to go by. Tape it to the metal...mark it with a sharpie then remove the template and go from there. I guess not. The right Lock Box was welded crooked. Both were too "long" for both locks to lock correctly. I fixed that issue with using Paclock locks for Ridgid boxes and some high density plastic to shore them up. 1/16 inch pieces to be exact...I had to put the plastic behind the lock hasp and then tighten them down for the locks to lock correctly. It did work though and have had 0 issues since. In the middle of the box...on the outside there are 2 points that are very sharp...I mean sharp....Even with paint on them. Be careful with that. Paint job is good....no issues with the vanity of the box. There is spatter but they just paint right over it...inside there's some sorta liquid that dried in the creases and they just painted over that to..not a big deal though. My dilemna at the time was do I spend $300 on this Ridgid box or spend $550 on a Knaack. That was an EZ answer cause I didn't have the extra $250 to spend. Would I do it again? Yeah...because I can take the time to fix the issues this box gave me without having to break the bank. I can't tell you how close I was to driving this box back and trying to find one at HD to replace it....we're talking 120+ miles there and back...but I didn't...I tried masterlock 5 series locks and the just wouldn't fit right. I did a little research and found these Paclock's and it really saved me time and stress of having to deal with a long drive and hassle of a return. I'm a staunch Ridgid tool customer and love the tool line and the LSA. I've had no issues with any of my Ridgid power tools....but...Read the negative reviews in here and heed the warnings on this box. It's a crap shoot you'll get an acceptable one. Either that or just rig it up like I did and move on with life. pictures attached

                        Poor design
                        DO NOT BUY RECOMMEND LOCK!!! The size they recommend is 38mm. The box clearly states 30mm or smaller. Made the mistake of buying the recommended size lock and it did not work. The size 27mm ended up fitting the locking mechanism but is flush with the outside of the box so I had to put a wire around it so I could get it back open once I locked it. Its terribly designed and welds look like an apprentice did them. I could of welded it better myself. Very disappointed for how much I paid for it. The hooks for the locking mechanism were also twisted/ bent so I had to straighten them out.

                            Wouldn’t buy it again
                            The welds are really bad and theres a lot of welding spatter that they didn’t cleaned and in some spots I can see the color of the metal like if it needed another painting coat

                              i like the box. i lucked out in the fact that mine was not damaged in any way. there seems to be some confusion on what lock fits, so i took a picture of the exact lock that worked for me!

                                I already sent in a review of this product. The quality control of the orange powder coating, packaging and Home Depot delivery to me was totally unacceptable. This is my third survey request I have received. Home Depot and Rigid have not addressed the issue and I will not be recommending this product to anyone.

                                5pts for forklift damage.
                                how do you deform the job box along a welded seam by an inch and not damage the cardboard packing? hope the cardboard is not stronger than the steel box. i was so impressed by the full gasket on the lid compared to the other brands that I bought this.

                                  I have been eyeing one of these boxes for a long time and finally pulled the trigger. I originally was going to purchase the 48in, but after looking over what I needed to put in there, I decided to spend the extra cash to go with the 60". No regrets. When I got it home it already had some dings which was a bummer but I was prepared for because of previous reviews I have read. That said, they are not super noticeable. For all of you trying to figure out what lock to use, I went with a pair of MasterLock 5SST 2" locks that came packaged together and only requires one key for both locks, which is handy. I originally wanted to go with combination locks so I could ensure that I always have access, but I couldn't find one that fit right. The only problem with the 2" 5SST is that when you bolt the box's shackle to the lock's shackle, it tends to move and then becomes a hassle to lock. To ensure a smooth locking movement every time, I cut a couple of small wood blocks and placed them under the lock's shackle and kept them from moving with some double sided tape. This keeps the lock's shackle aligned with the lock's hole (I will add a pic as a reference). I feel like this setup was built for a bigger lock with a bigger shackle, but locks that size are just too tight. I'm happy with the direction I went. Lastly, I live in an ocean-salt environment, so the solid weather proofing on this box was another selling point for me, but just in case I also leave a small bucket of DampRid in there as a back up. This box comes with the tray only and no netting for the lid. I am thinking about mounting a magnetic cargo net for more functionality. Overall, this box is tough, well built and sexy. I'm really happy with my purchase. A tall version of this would be on my wish list.
