Better Built? I don't think so.

" I loved the idea of a wheel well or "porkchop" toolbox, I use my tool boxes quite often, My last pickup I had side mount Weather Guard tool boxes and loved them, they were very durable and the latch system was first rate, however I disliked the limited vision I experienced when looking to the passenger side during lane changes and right turns. This is why I was drawn to these lower profile tool boxes, so I went ahead and bought these wheel well boxes, when they arrived, I was pleasantly suprised with the quality of the drawers which I thought would be my biggest concern, It was the latches that ended up being "Horrible" the company must of got them at the local dollar store. I hope Better Built reads these reviews, they have a great idea, with the most worthless latches and door mechanisms, the one review was generous stating the latches would last a few hundred tries. my stopped working well at about 20 tries. Sorry, I really hoped they would be better. Better Built, put a little more money into this design and you will have something worth buying "

Wheel well tool box

" The box itself is nicely built. Drawers have slides not rollers. Top pops vertically from end. Issues: Does not fit cab-top camper shell well. Locks come with mis-matched keys. Lock mechanisms are made from substandard materials. Bottom lock is plastic. Top lock is aluminum pot metal (not good alloy/rough castings). Do not expect either lock to work more than 500 cycles before it won't work anymore. Case of good box with terrible lock system. "
