The item was slightly larger than the holes that they fit in. I drilled the holes slightly larger and now every thing works perfectly. Now I can open the tool box from one handle instead of two. 146284


The parts fit and now I have both latches opening when I open either latch. Now I dont have to climb into the bed of the truck to open both latches at the same time.

Well the product is exactly what I expected, that's not the impressive part. The attention etrailer pays to it's costumers. They have excellent service and customer comunication. Which to me is more important than anything else when doing business these days. Plus they shipped the product right out. I hate when you order something and the people take for ever to ship and ship it cheaply knowing USPS takes forever. Etrailer got it right to me, so thank you for that. I would do business again. 134888

I had a really hard time finding this replacement part for my truck tool box latch! No one who sold the tool boxes sold the part or knew how or where to order it. It was taking two people at the same time, every time we opened the tool box, or either having to climb up in the bed of the truck. I was VERY Happy when this arrived in the mail! I will definitely visit and purchase from this site in the future! Thanks Again! 107449

Easy and simple ordering process. Shipped within 24 hours of ordering. The UWS rod connector fits perfectly. Use a small allen wrench to tighten the connector onto the rod. A word of advice: at least for my toolbox, if you only have the connector rod, but no connectors, make sure you order 2 connectors. You need a connector to attach each latch/handle to the connector rod. 109132

Exactly what the description said it would be! Well made, Great quality! Outstanding customer service. When I first ordered this, it was out of stock. Suzanne T., the wonderful lady that she is, emailed me when the product was in stock. I ordered it the same day, and shipping was fast as usual. Overall an outstanding job! Thanks again! 102876

The Rod Connector on my pickup tool box snapped, causing me to have to lift both handles in order to open the box. These Rod Connectors fit perfect and installed easily, and now my tool box works correct again. No more climbing in the back of the truck to open my tool box! 140809


by: Trina04/07/2014

This product was rather hard to locate at the hardware stores. Luckily I came across eTrailer in my online search. This is exactly the part that was needed for the rod in our tool box on the back of the truck. Just as described, prompt and courteous service. Thank you. 124164


by: Tom E.08/10/2014

This is great. The right part came and now I can open my tool box with one hand, and it only cost $10 including shipping. The estimated delivery was three days after the actual delivery. I was so ecstatic that I know I will order from these folks again. thanks 145573


by: Tom02/28/2013

I found this product hard to find at local truck parts store especially if you don't know the mfg of your tool box. After having found a box similiar to mine I located etrailer on line and they had this product in stock. Well done. 68233


by: Rìchard C.08/17/2015

Connector worked great and glad I ordered 2 because when I went to replace broken 1 the 2nd 1 broke also. Thanks for getting them to me so quickly. It was a pain having to hold both handles up at the same time to get in the toolbox. 219820

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?

  • Dimensions of Part # UWSRODCONNECTOR
  • The # UWSRODCONNECTOR is the only rod connector we carry. I did include a link to replacement parts for toolboxes that we do carry. For the rod connector, I pulled one from the warehouse to take some measurements. Take a look at the photo I produced showing the dimensions.

  • Rod Recommendation for a UWS Tool Box
  • I should be able to help you. However, stopped carrying UWS products so we no longer stock the rod you are looking for. We just happen to have some stock of the # UWSRODCONNECTOR left over so it's still on our site. Based on the dimensions of the # UWSRODCONNECTOR if you could find a rod that is 1/4 of an inch it would work for you. You will just need to cut the rod down to the length you need.
