Semi truck tarp and chain underbody tool boxes by Highway Products.

Highway Products Inc., established in 1980, built its reputation on manufacturing the toughest semi truck and trailer underbody tool boxes on the planet. This unique line of tool boxes features no-sag doors and is constructed of the thickest grade of aluminum stock utilized in the industry: 1/8" marine grade aluminum.

 

Note: Underbody tool boxes are often overlooked when ordering truck and trailers.

What to look for: Metal thickness - if it's not 1/8th inch thick it will not last! Road conditions are just too tough. Hinge. Does it look oversized? If not, it's not tough enough. Are theystainless steel? How is it fastened. Rivets often work loose after time. Can you easily replace a damaged door or lock?

Take a Look at our Locks. We have several different styles.

This is our custom built single point Tee-Lock we use on small to mid-size single door side and top open tool boxes. We use a two or three point Tee- Lock system for double door or bigger single door tool boxes. Notice when the Tee handle is inset, it keeps the lock from accidently opening from vibration. Our double Tee locks are spring loaded to keep the lock closed. Keys that work either direction for easy open at night. (2) keys. Comes polished.

 

Similar to rear semi-trailer doors, above is our Stainless Steel Bar-Lock system which requires owner padlock but once bar lock is set, the tang will keep it bolted shut. A great option if you use your own locks. Comes polished and nice looking.

 

 

How about the inside construction of the tool box. Is it fully gusseted? Does it look like you could build a house on top of it? Are the locks super tough? They better be. If you're putting heavy or awkward items in the tool box, do the doors open to the sides? If not you will be leaning over the drop door to load and unload. Not a back saving feature.

Highway Products tool boxes are reinforced and reinforced again. That's why they last for millions of miles. We didn't get our reputation from skimping.

If the hinge isn't this big, its not big enough.

Stainless steel Torx™ screws are the toughest fastener there is. They don't loosen and allow the door to be replaced without special rivet guns. Also notice the beefy size of our 3/8 knuckle, stainless steel hinge.

One of the weak points of underbody truck tool boxes is the bottom corners. There is so much road stress from carrying heavy tarps, chains, tools, and other equipment, the corners sometimes break. Highway Products has eliminated this problem with reinforced angle bracing welded in the corners. (larger tool boxes only) This also gives a double thickness to bolt through when using a cradle type mounting system.

Road vibrations may rattle doors open allowing expensive tie-down equipment or tools to fall out on the highway. Not good! Highway Products spring loaded locking rods keep the doors from opening. In fact, the more vibration you get, the more they try to close.   (double door tool boxes only)

And, they look GOOD!

Want to add powerful looks to your truck or trailer?

Drivers will be using their tool boxes every day to access tarps, chains, straps, tools, and other equipment. So make sure to take a second look at the tool boxes before you buy.

Like all equipment, there can be a lot of difference time savings, which is cost.

How many times have you seen tool box doors being held shut with bunji cords or flapping open in the wind. This in not cost savings.

Highway Products underbody truck tool boxes have 40 years of design features that make them extra tough: 1) the larger semi truck tool boxes have extra reinforcement in the bottoms.2) Oversized continuous stainless steel piano hinge are the biggest in the industry. 1/4 inch stainless Torx™ screws (no rivets). Torx screws also allow you to replace a damaged tool box door without special tools and expense. 3) The same Heavy-duty "T-handle" stainless steel locks and mechanisms we have been using for 40 years. Keeps your valuables secure. Plus, a five year "no-nonsense" warranty for that warm fuzzy feeling.

Doors that will never sag and don't need bunji cords to keep them closed.

The doors of our double-door, side open underbody tool boxes close into the frame of the box. The frame style underbody tool box keep the doors protected from road debris, bottoming, or a high center situation.

We've seen trailers high-centered on railroad tracks trailer wheels off the ground. After dragging it to safety, minimal damage done to the box and the doors still worked fine. We've seen where the trailer was dropped, fully loaded, without the landing gear down. The doors still worked fine.

Our customers have been transferring Highway Products tool boxes from their old trucks and trailers to their new ones for over 20 years, because they last. This means millions of miles! They are truly the toughest tool boxes on the market.

Remember, you will be using these boxes for a long time.

Need custom sizes? No Problem!

Under bed tool boxes made from aluminum for semi trailers and trucks built by Highway Products.  Our Full Faced (shown on left) underbody tool boxes are equipped with an internal rain gutter. This makes for a very water tight underbody tool box. Highway Products developed this style of internal rain gutter in the early 80's and since has been copied by most other manufactures because of it's ease of manufacturing . We use this style of underbody tool box where it performs best for the situation. Still a great tool box.

Sturdy mounting systems

To properly support underbody tool boxes and their contents, we always recommend mounting them in a cradle type of mounting system that does not allow side-shifting. We call side-shifting the travel the tool box moves when stopping and starting. This undesirable travel tries to tweak the tool box which works hardest on the corners. In fact, our experience shows most of the problems with underbody tool boxes are due to an inadequate mounting system.

Because of cost and circumstances it is often more desirable to mount from the sides of the tool box. So we offer two mounting systems: Please visit our mounting bracket page.
