Can Key Be Removed with Latch Unlocked on MaxxTow MaxxHaul Toolbox # MT80349


I have read reviews of some trailer tongue toolboxes that state the keys are not removable unless the latch is locked. Is it possible with this toolbox to have the keys removed but the latch is unlocked? I want to be able to close the lid with the key out and the latch unlocked. Thanks in advance.

On the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Trailer Tongue Toolbox # MT80349 the key cannot be removed unless the latch is in the lock position, as you mentioned seeing for other units. The box can open AND close with it in the unlocked position, but you won't be able to take the key out until you lock it.

This type of design is utilized on most trailer toolboxes like this and it's really just a way to prevent the key from getting lost. It's all too easy to unlock the toolbox, remove the key, and find yourself wondering where you placed the key by the time you're closing it back up.

I have attached a full video review on this unit that you can also check out.
