Crystal Lake, IL ­ May 4, 2010 ­ In an effort to continuously meet the needs of professional contractors, the WEATHER GUARD brand is introducing its new, all-steel, low-profile saddle box. Secure, durable and convenient to use, the saddle box is designed to maximize visibility and enhance safety.

³The all-steel box fits just above a truck¹s bed rail which keeps rear sightlines intact,² said Mike Sover, Senior Product Manager. ³This provides the contractor with more visibility through the rear window especially on newer pick-up truck designs that feature higher bed rails.²

The all-steel box comes in two sizes to fit both full-sized and compact pick-up trucks. The box¹s heavy-duty steel construction is topped off with a powder coat finish and comes in either a black or white finish. Another important quality about this product is that installation is quick and easy with crimp-free/drill-free mounting brackets.

For security, the saddle box features an EXTREME PROTECTIONTM lock. A full weather seal keeps out moisture even in extreme conditions and a weatherproof power cord pass-through permits easy access for down-time tool recharging.

The saddle box also features gas shocks that ease the lid open at the push of a button. The box¹s cover, when fully open, sits at a 90° angle providing unhindered access to the inside.

"This all-steel low-profile saddle box is backed up with the WEATHER GUARD brand reputation in the form of a Limited Lifetime Warranty on materials and workmanship," said Sover. "It will fill the needs of many types of contractors for years to come."
