Model 2048 KNAACK® CLASSIC™ Chest, 16 cu ft is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pride and Joy I have a KNAACK model 42 which I have had since I started as a Ironworker helper, since then its always kept my tools safe, dry, organized, plus my work wear. Its been through many seasons over the years but I've always kept it clean, was always asked if id get a new one but I'd say no because its my pride and joy, Because sure its old and wearing slowly but nothing comes close to its strength. I don't want to win a new toolbox, just to say that I have a KNAACK and its the best equipment I've ever owned.

I need a box for the bed of my work pickup

I'm looking for a box that will fit the back of my work pickup. The current box we have has been great for 30 some years. But as we all know time takes its toll. The lid has bit the dust and their is a hole in the bottom. Just from having it in all the elements. I need a box that is 30 in tall x 30 in wide x 48 in long if I could get one that size that would be great. If not to that exact size. I need it to remain 30 in wide and 48 inches long. Along with double front facing locks ONLY.
Asked by: Aaron
Please contact Customer Care Monday thru Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm with the make/model/year/bed length of your work pickup. We can provide part numbers for those boxes that will fit your truck.

What is the part number for the locking assembly on the 2048

The 2048 has a dual locking system. I have one assembly on one side but I am missing the assembly on the other. What is the model or part number for the locking assembly so that I may order a new one. I have tried to research but all I get is the U-bolt lock but it doesn't look remotely to the locking assembly that is within the box.
Asked by: Munchies143
You would need the watchman IV lock system which is part number 7286-1PK.
