Video Transcript for Review of UWS Truck Toolbox Rod Connector - UWSRODCONNECTOR

Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a quick look at the UWS rod connector. This rod connector is going to connect your toolbox latch handle to the rod inside the toolbox that operates that latch. It will work with any UWS box with two handles and it is going to allow that lid to be opened from either the driver's side or the passenger side of your vehicle. Give you a few pictures here to show you how that's going to connect to that rod.

You can see it's going to allow the rod to pass through and then we can easily tighten down this bolt up here with a eighth of an inch hex wrench and that will hold that rod in place and allow us to get everything connected.Do want to give you a few measurements, but they are pretty small measurements so you can see on the diagram there, the head is right about 0.62 inches. It is in total about 0.7 inches tall. The overall width of the lower part there is 0.439 of an inch, and the opening of our hole is about 0.27. I did independently verify those measurements with my own digital calipers, so I can tell you that they are accurate and this is going to be a great option for you if you need to reconnect those latches on your toolbox. That's going to complete our look at the UWS rod connector, again I'm Michael with etrailer.com.

Thanks for watching.

This little connector was exactly what I needed to repair the broken/missing parts on my truck tool box. It was priced at $xx.xx-$xx.xx elsewhere which is a ridiculous price! I got two and a spare for under$xx.xx. Great deal for me and delivery was prompt.


Comments
This part is working fine after a year. I am very pleased I could obtain it and it was perfect for my job.

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!


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

When replacing paddle handles on truck tool box you need these to connect cross-over rod that operates second latch on the other side of tool box. They are made well, work perfectly and cost very little. It does not pay to mess around trying to create a connector with tie wire, hose clamps or such when these UWSRODCONNECTORS are available from etrailer.com and shipped quickly at very low cost.
