Expert Answers about UWS

  • Replacement 10-Inch Gas Strut for Lid of Husky Tool Box
  • We offer a replacement heavy-duty gas strut with a 10-inch dimension between its ball/socket mounts, part # UWSLIFTCYLIND from UWS which is the item you referenced. This item has a weight capacity of 45-lbs. I could not find a cross reference for the part numbers you provided (thank you) but since the dimensions match up exactly, so long as your tool box lid does not weigh more than 45-lbs (unlikely since it is aluminum) you should be fine using this item in your Husky tool box.

  • Latch Will Not Open Lid on UWS Tool Box
  • I contacted UWS, and they gave me a couple of solutions to get your tool box to open. UWS suggested to first try to push down on the top of the lid to make sure the lid is close all the way and latch. Then turn the key to the unlock position and then pull both paddle handles to open lid. If this does not open the tool box lid, then there might be something in the box that that could be interfering with the connecting rod between the latch and the handle. They suggested parking on...

  • Replacement Keys & Locks for UWS Truck Toolbox
  • Key codes for UWS toolboxes usually include the letter prefix CH. Please refer to the photo that shows where to find this on the face of the lock. This photo happens to show a lock code CH510. I tried both of the codes you gave but neither seems to return a valid result. You may prefer to just order a whole lock with new keys. We offer several options for different types of tool boxes. For example, part # UWSLOCKCH510 is a lock with two keys that fits toolboxes with square paddles,...

  • Replacement Lock and Keys for UWS Toolboxes
  • There are several different lock and key replacements for UWS toolboxes and each one is different from the next. There is a chance you could end up with the same lock and key that you already have on the box but you would just need to order a different number than what is printed on the lock face or key to get a completely different set. For example, if you ordered # UWSLOCKCH503 you would get a lock and keys for CH503. I have included part links to all of the replacements we have for...

  • How Does UWS Replacement Lift Cylinder Install to Toolbox
  • I contacted our representative at Thule and she informed me that the Replacement Lift Cylinder for UWS Toolboxes, part # UWSLIFTCYLIND, mounts to a ball stud on the toolbox. The replacement lift cylinder snaps or pops on to the ball stud and does not use a tab or clip. If you have a UWS Toolbox and need a replacement lift cylinder, it is recommended to use the UWS replacement parts. The other parts sound like different brand replacement parts.

  • Replacement CH502 Lock Set for Delta Truck Tool Box
  • While there's a very good chance that the UWS Replacement Lock Cylinder - CH502 # UWSLOCKCH502 referenced in your question is what you need for your Delta Truck Box, the two manufacturers aren't related to each other. We do not currently carry Delta products so I can't confirm that the UWS lock and key set will work on your box, but since the numbers are exactly the same it's likely that the two companies simply obtain their latches from the same source. If this lock set looks like what...

  • Installing UWS Replacement Lock Cylinder on Toolbox
  • As you mentioned, the existing lock barrel is held in place by the retaining nut on the inside of the box. Try giving the nut a good shot of a spray penetrant and letting it soak for awhile. Apply a wrench to the nut, and use a crescent wrench to hold the flats on the lock barrel (be careful not to damage the threads on the barrel.) This should allow you to apply enough torque to the nut to get it to loosen.

  • How Do I Know What Key Number I Need for my UWS Truck Toolbox

The code should start with CH and followed by 3 numbers. To order, just put KEY in front of your lock code. EX. For lock code CH503 you will want to order # KEYCH503.
