The next advancements in truck box security include the 2024 Saddle and Lo-Side Boxes that feature 1Key Ultralock that combines maximum security protection, ability to manage keys to multiple boxes and new visual locking cues. One-key coding provides the best in fleet truck box key syncing while a new, bold red push button lock mechanism lets end-users know at a glance if the box is locked or not.

Advancements in Truck Box Security: Saddle and Lo-Side Boxes
The 2024 WEATHER GUARD Saddle and Lo-Side truck boxes feature 1Key Ultralock. The premium locking and latching system combines top security protection with fleet management versatility. The ultra-secure lock-and-latch system guards against theft and the ultra-versatile key allows users to manage one truck or an entire fleet of truck boxes by easily coding every truck box to the single 1Key. Another productive new feature is the ability to quickly see at a glance if the truck box is locked or not with the highly visible, pop-up red lock. No more squinting at each truck box lock to check if it’s unlocked. Now if you see the red push-button is popped up, it’s unlocked.

  • Long-Haul Durability: The new truck boxes provide ARMOR Tuf® powder coat for long-lasting performance and to keep the boxes looking good for a lifetime.
