With a large, easy-to-use blue release button on the outside, Dee Zee’s Blue Label series represents thicker, heavier gauge aluminum construction that will stand up to heavy duty use. With a polished metal finish, the Blue Label Brite Diamond-Tread Side Mount Tool Box is designed to mount atop either side bed rail and hang down partially into the side of the bed area. Because it’s a Blue Label box, it is built to take remain undamaged after heavy impacts from large equipment, rubble, or materials inevitably occur inside the bed area. It’s also designed to make your life easier when you’re on the job, because Dee Zee knows there is no time to waste dealing with fussy tool box lids that do not open or close easily. Blue Label series boxes are built with a lid that is so rigid it does not need reinforcement brackets to prevent flexing or bending in your hands. Dee Zee eliminates the headache of folding hinges that snag and bind when pulling the lid from one side of your vehicle with an integrated hinge that spans the entire width of the lid. Not only will the lid open evenly, gas struts on both sides allow it to glide open with dampened, jewel-like smoothness. So when you want the lid open, it stays open. And when you want the lid shut, it stays shut without loosening because you can adjust the level of tightness it maintains. Your tool box will remain sealed without allowing moisture and dust to creep in.
Dee Zee’s Blue Label Brite Diamond-Tread Side Mount Tool Box is built as one open box with a single lid. The smaller section beneath the top area is deep enough to provide excellent room for storage inside, but not so deep that it prevents loading of panels or lumber on the bed floor beneath it. A removable plastic tray keeps small items secure in sectioned areas. Because Dee Zee believes a tool box that’s corrosion-free and strong enough to remain functional for a long time should also continue to look good, the textured diamond tread aluminum surfaces are finished with a protective layer of clear powder coat to prevent scratches, chips, and tarnishing. And since the top of the side mount tool box provides a flat hard surface, it makes a convenient work area. Dee Zee proudly manufactures all tool boxes in the United States and back them with a limited lifetime warranty on the aluminum construction against manufacturing defects and corrosion.
