by: Ron B.08/12/2014

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.

Still good!

I had spent hours trying to rig stuff up for these rod connectors, clamos, little U-bolts, etc, because I couldn't find replacement parts...Finally, I found them on your site and they work perfect!! 5 minute repair! Love it! Don't have to walk all the way around my truck any more to open both sides! 268276


Still works great! Tool box opens first pull every time from either side!

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


by: Curtiss B06/06/2016

This product was exactly what I needed to repair the used tool box we just bought. The website was was very easy to use and the shipment fast. I was extremely pleased with this transaction and would be happy and confident in recommending to all my friends. I was not able to mark excellent above in the rating section on this page, however, that is my rating - EXCELLENT 258030


by: RH12/04/2013

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


by: kim h04/03/2017

Very easy to place order, notifications of order placed and order shipped quality replacement parts appear to be better than Factory parts they put a name to who checked the quality and of accuracy of my order along with all the contact information unlike another company where you have to contact customer service to find out who you even purchased it from thanks etrailer 362202

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


by: Cabinet Guy02/09/2017

This is one of several items I have purchased from "e trailer". There service is great and the shipping is fast as well. I ordered Two boat trailer axles three years ago and they were great quality and still performing well. The pricing is competitive for this industry too. Good company to do business with!! 340177


by: Mike E.09/20/2016

I bought a used toolbox. Had to lift both handles to get it to open. The rod was still in the box. Ordered 2 of these and now I can just lift one handle at a time like it should be. Thank you for carrying such a helpful product. This is not my 1st purchase from and it won't be my last. 296925


by: Bryan & John S. (humor)08/28/2016

able to use internet search to find this product at your company, made it easy. Once contacted, ordering was easy. Product shipped out fast. I have already replaced the old connector with one I ordered from you. this is a small item, but you do keep it in stock. That is appreciated. 288592


by: Luckey10/04/2016

received today appears to be of good quality. I ordered several since this is a part that is not at a local store. should the other original break it could be quickly repaired to maintain a secure area for my tools and equipment. Thanks for being so fast in getting the parts to me. 303234


by: Dylan M01/21/2017

I bought my tool box off Craigslist and it was missing a couple of things. One was the rod connectors for the locks. I ordered these from etrailer and they fit great. I installed and adjusted the locks in about 2 minutes and haven't had any trouble with them slipping at all. 334217


by: Greg H.07/11/2014

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: Paul G.04/30/2017

Excellent Plus. Ordering was easy, communication regarding the order and shipping status was prompt and thorough. The product was great. Lots of service for small order (including freight). Great all around--look forward to doing business with etrailer again. 374405


by: Tucker D.03/28/2017

Perfect for the truck box i got with my used truck. Now I can open the top from ether side. All the hardware was gone, so I replaced the latches and got a 4' piece of 1/4 inch metal rod from Home Depot. Trimmed it to length and tightened it down. Works great. 359709


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


by: RACHEL02/18/2013

I had search for this item for a hour, then I checked out site and exactly what I was needing. There was no doubt because of the clear picture that was posted . The ordering was easy and the shipping was quick. 66799


by: Keith Little11/19/2013

I am very pleased with my transaction. From the website to the last detail of the order. The product arrived on my desk in about four days. I am happy to recommend etrailer for all your trailer or tool box needs. Thanks! 107798


by: Eric R03/16/2015

Exactly as described, exactly what I needed, not able to find any place else, except one auction site for way more money. Transaction was painless, shipping prompt, a pleasure to do business with a reliable merchant. 178631


by: Bill08/09/2015

I had been looking for this part for about three years and couldn't find it. I stumbled upon etrailer. The part was original equipment and was reasonably priced. Shipping was also reasonably priced and was fast. 217970


by: Rodney C.08/16/2017

very satisfied with product and customer tool box Is now secure with this replacement part that I thought would be impossible to replace without spending big bucks. 130277


by: Ralph H.05/05/2011

I overtightened the rod connector and it broke, so I order 2 from and the price is fair and so was the shipping. I ordered an extra one in case I break another. 12943

Did the trick for fixing the toolbox on my son's truck. Was not an exact fit though. Had to drill out the holes on the toolbox just a hair to get the parts to fit. 216495

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?

  • 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.
    view full answer...

  • 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.
