With an easy-to-use release handle, the HARDware Series Utility Chest tool boxes mirror Dee Zee’s Blue Label commercial grade aluminum versions, but substitute 20-gauge powder coated traditional steel to offer value for the customer that needs a lockable box without the greater cost of heavy-duty aluminum construction. And like all Dee Zee boxes, they eliminate the headache of hinges that bind when lids are pulled from one side. Instead of two separate ones, an integrated hinge spans the entire width of the lid. Not only does it allow the lid to open evenly, gas struts on both sides allow it to glide up with dampened, jewel-like smoothness. So when you want the lid open, it stays open without falling on your fingers. 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. For added storage convenience, a removable plastic tray keeps small items secure in sectioned areas.
For added convenience, 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, aluminum surfaces are protected with a layer of powder coat to enhance style while preventing scratches, chips, and tarnishing. Dee Zee proudly manufactures HARDware Series Utility Chest Tool Boxes in the United States and backs them with a 3-year warranty on the aluminum construction against manufacturing defects and corrosion.
