Trailer Toolbox

I looked at trailer tool boxes and could not find one that would work on my trailer, got tired of the box inside the trailer and having to move move crap to get to it, or taking to much stuff out and having to toss it into the truck....so this is what I came up with....

brace

The brace comes down the center, and I was told a tongue box would not work, so for $15.00 did it this way...

I would turn it around. Over time, wind will wear that plastic latch out and nex thing you know the lid will fly open going down the road.

What about water? Like I said I want to do the same, but won't it get wet or stuff get stolen out of it at night? Or does it come off? Not giving you a hard time, just curious.

latch

It has two metal latches, plus a location to lock it, the best part was the cutting to fit.....notice what I used as bracing so it will never blow off......
