CRYSTAL LAKE, IL ­ -­ Knaack L.L.C. and WEATHER GUARD Products announced the introduction of the new E-Line Model 143 Saddle Box at the Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association (STAFDA) annual tradeshow in Atlanta. The truck box is the first product in a new series offering WEATHER GUARD quality and reputation at an exceptional value.

The E-Line Saddle Box Model 143 is secure, durable and convenient to use. It is protected against break-ins with a secure locking system and a tamper-resistant, full-length, piano-style hinge. The 143 also features ³Easy Find² organization with a removable tool box and lift-out tote tray.

The saddle box¹s sturdy, heavy-duty construction features a reinforced aluminum diamond-plate body with an automotive-grade, baked-on powder-coat finish for years of attractive appearance.

³The development of the E-Line Saddle Box fills a niche in the market,² said Bill Zbylut, VP Marketing. ³It provides the high quality on which our customers rely and at the same time offers a remarkable value with a 10-year warranty.² 

Automotive-style latches, with a paddle handle mechanism, make single-handed opening easy, even when wearing bulky work gloves. When fully open the cover sits at a 90° angle providing unhindered access to the inside of the box.

Installation on the user¹s vehicle is designed to be quick and easy. Drill-free, heavy duty J-bolt mounting brackets are simple to attach and ensure complete security. Mounting pads prevent bed rail scratches and also dampen vibration when the vehicle is in motion.

³The E-Line Saddle Box is the latest addition to our family of products,² said Zbylut. ³During these economic times, we are making sure to reach contractors and remodelers of all sizes who want to step up to WEATHER GUARD quality. This product allows them to do that.²
