Video Transcript for UWS 48 Inch Cargo Box for Cargo Carrier Review

Today we are going to show you the 48 inch standard chest for UWS Cargo Carrier, part number UWS01022. UWS’s 48 inch standard chest is a lockable box that is designed to fit inside their cargo carrier, part number UWS03511. Both the carrier and the chest are also available in a powder coat black finish. The black aluminum cargo carrier is UWS03517 and the black chest is part number UWS01062. 0:32

The box measures 48 inches long, 20 inches wide and 20 inches deep for a total storage space of 11.1 cubic feet. The box is constructed of polished aluminum tread plate and, because it is aluminum, it is guaranteed not to rust. The box is made in the USA and features a one year warranty. Here you can see UWS using full length welds along the panels of the box. There are two lift latches on the front to release the lid. The one of the left side of the box has the lock cylinder. The heavy duty gas shocks, again, help you open the lid and hold it upright at a full 90 degrees to make accessing the box easy. The inside of the lid is insulated and filled with foam. And there is a film stripping around the edge to help keep some moisture out of the box. Along the back side of the box is a piano hinge that runs the full length of the box. 1:27

Now we will show you what the box looks like when used in conjunction with the UWS cargo carrier. The box s right into place inside the carrier. Because of its aluminum construction, it is very lightweight. Even one person can handle it easily. The box fits nicely into place on the carrier. And, as you can see, there is plenty of storage room. Inside is an actuating arm that connects one hinge to the other, so that one hinge will open the box. When locked, the cylinder prevents the left hinge from opening and, because the two hinges are connected with the actuating arm, neither hinge can open. There is plenty of space inside for safely carrying whatever cargo you need to. And because the box is made of aluminum, it is going to hold up better than a steel box would again road salt and the elements. Though the box fits nicely in the carrier, you should still use a set of tie-downs to secure it. And there you have it for the 48 inch standard chest for UWS cargo carrier, part number UWS01022.

  • Storage Cargo Box Similar to DeeZee Toolbox # DZ75 That Has Lid on Top of Box
    The lid seal of the DeeZee Specialty Series Underbody Toolbox # DZ75 would work really well with the lid on the top of the box. It arguably would seal better in this orientation. The chain is also long enough to allow the lid to open up beyond totally vertical too so it wouldn't want to fall down and shut as soon as you let it go. It doesn't have any shocks or struts to hold open though. We have a similar dimension UWS box part # UWS01022 that was designed to open up like you are wanting...
