Frequently Asked Questions

Will this truck box fit my truck?
Use this Truck Fit Guide to help decide which boxes will fit in the vehicle.
Can I purchase a replacement key online?
Yes. WEATHER GUARD® has formed a partnership with Simpley Keys to enable our customers to easily and conveniently purchase replacement keys online! Please remember, in order to purchase replacement keys you must know your key code and which type of box do you have (Saddle, Cross, Lo-Side, Hi-Side, or Pork Chop Box or All-Purpose Chest). Without a key code it may be necessary to replace the lock. One of the benefits of registering your products with us is that we can have your key codes ready when you need them and save you the expense of replacing your locks due to lost keys.

Can I get my boxes keyed the same?
Yes, your WEATHER GUARD® Truck Boxes can be keyed all the same. If you currently own boxes, you can purchase replacement lock cylinders from your local WEATHER GUARD® Distributor. If you are purchasing new boxes, just ask your local WEATHER GUARD® Distributor to order your boxes keyed alike.
All I have is my serial number. Can you tell me what box I have?
No. The serial number only tells us when your box was manufactured. The model number is on a decal located on the outside of the equipment or in some cases on the inside cover of the equipment.
Can your truck boxes be repainted?
Yes. The powder coating on our truck tool boxes and ladder racks makes an excellent undercoating.
Are WEATHER GUARD® truck boxes fireproof?
WEATHER GUARD® truck boxes are not fire rated.
Can I have boxes made to my specific dimensions?
Probably not. We do not custom make equipment unless there are some large (20+?) quantities involved.
Are there replacement parts available for WEATHER GUARD® Products?
Replacement parts can be ordered through your local WEATHER GUARD® Distributor.

Yes. Simply create an account or log-in to our Owners' Club and enter your product details to register your WEATHER GUARD product. Our product registration tool provides an easy way to manage all of your product and warranty information.
Can I register my key code?
Yes. WEATHER GUARD® recommends registering all your key codes in order to keep them secure and prevent the expense of replacing a lock due to lost keys.

What is the warranty on WEATHER GUARD® Truck Boxes?
