How to lock a truck toolbox

We all know how important it is to keep your tools secure and how frequently toolboxes in vans, and trucks are targeted by thieves, so ensuring your tools are safe and secure is vital for your peace of mind, as well as keeping all essential equipment safe and secure. It is important to be aware that different toolboxes lock in different ways.

The Black Dog range features an enhanced level of security, with two keys for one lock. These toolboxes are produced via rotational moulding. This gives the toolbox a constant thickness, providing an impressive structural advantage. The Black Dog range comes in a selection of different sizes, making it suitable for a range of vehicles and specifications.

The Origin truck/trailer toolbox features a traditional “t- locking handle” which helps to secure the contents of your toolbox. We believe security should be treated as a priority as it ensures your tools are safe and protected from thieves, so making sure your toolbox is secure is highly important!

Another range which utilizes magnetic locking is the Mother Trucker range, which boasts a magnet activated locking lever.  With an enveloping door and double release lever locking system, this black toolbox for a truck offers greater security and reliability.
