I'd like to get a couple jobsite security boxes.

My friend has a Ridgid one that's pretty nice. The locks are

enclosed, but the lid lifts a little even when it's locked. I

think it could be pried open rather easily.

Does anybody know of a better secure, safe, hard to get in

box.

Thanks in advance
Adam

I own a few Knack boxes, but you can get into any of them with a cordless grinder in a rather short amount of time.

I forgot about them. I do have a small box they made. It's very nice.

I imagine there's probably nothing a grinder can't get past. Those

cordless grinders keep me up at night.

Mostly stupid teenage kids go around breaking into stuff here. Not

many carry grinders into houses usually.

Throw some "radio active material Dangerous" stickers on it. (Or high voltage stickers)

Weld on or wrap one of those really heavy duty scoutter (cycle) chains... a cordless will need 5 batteries and 5 cutoff disc's to get thru it.)

Just make it the least desirable target... people who try to steal nominal value chit are not the smartest.

There is a guy who drives around here in an unlettered cube van that says 'live bees' on the back door. Not sure what he does.

I own 6) 2x2x5 Greenlee boxes, ordered from HD. I love them. I have welded about 3' of chain to each to lock ladders, air compressors, or whatever to.

I recommend the Greenlee ones too. Every trade in the building I am working in has at least one or two of them. I had to move the one the builder I am working with owns and I have to say it feels quite solid and there wasn't much inside. I am just not sure how much they can hold inside.
