Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for RIDGID 48 in. x 24 in. Universal Storage Chest. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.30 stars, and the price range is $255.00-$319.

RIDGID 48 in. x 24 in. Universal Storage Chest is made to stand against the harsh environment of construction. Many reviewers used this storage chest as their tool box for their job site. Tools ranged from simple hand tools, to heavy duty power tools like welding equipment. Some reviewers even stored their guns in this RIDGID Storage Chest. Happy reviewers appreciated how secure their tools were. This tool box is made from heavy steel protecting its contents from the inevitable work accident.  The RIDGID Storage Chest will also keep its contents secure when traveling from job site to job site. Even if the chest falls out of your truck, your tools will remain safe inside. 

Not everyone agreed on the quality of RIDGID's Storage Chest. One reviewer noted that the welding job for the chest's seams could have been better. This reviewer must have been a welder by trade because nobody reported the box falling apart on them. Instead, most gripes were focused on the locking mechanism. RIDGID may have thought letting the consumer install their own lock may have been a nice customizable feature. However, many reviewers had trouble finding the right lock that fits as well as securely installing the lock. Some reviewers thought it would preferable if RIDGID installed a lock when originally manufactured.

Many of the reviews give some helpful tips on the type of lock that works best for this tool chest. All in all, reviewers were pleased with the security and durability. Truly this seems to be the ideal tool case with high quality materials for a surprisingly low price.

As far as the locks go, Master Lock N5XT two lock set works perfect, just leave the lock slightly loose when tightening the U bolts, and they'll work perfectly!
