Thanks BMW_BIKER_KEITH!!

Progress is a little slower with the moto show looming but the key lock with the cover is definitely going to be one option. A good less expensive option is amazingly tough?! I don't really know if it's needed though as the cover for the key lock should take care of any concerns (even though there have been no problems). I was thinking of the cover over the coin slot too...who would even look

The cover will be retro fitted too older tool boxes too Mike. C

Keyed alike to the BMW key. That would be big $$$ and we might have BMW knocking at the door.

You bloody ripper, but if the new box is a bit bigger I might be tempted to upgrade.

Hey thanks Motoriley!

If you get a Tool Box too then we'll have to try to make "submersible waterproof"! What depth do you need...10ft.?
I've seen you're videos! (entertaining!)
Maybe we'll have to delay the one for you until some of the Spring melt can go away!!

So we are back and catching up after the Vancouver Moto Show and we should have some more news on the Tool Boxes soon.

Thanks!

Dave

Tool box

3 feet will be plenty. ... Actually I don't mind as nothing that water will harm is going in there.

both at deepest points

They will be black powder coated and we MAY offer naked which is what I've shown above so it's easy to see everything.

Door is hinged at the bottom with a stainless steel piano hinge.

There are two 1/4" carriage bolt (square) holes in the back. They are positioned roughly 36mm from the bottom and 125mm apart. We supply the mounting hardware which is 1/4" carriage bolts, washers and Nyloc nuts...all stainless. This bolts right up to our skid plate through the small slots we have in the front near the top. The carriage bolts mount in through the back so there's no removing it from the outside.

The hardware can all be flipped around to be mounted on other skid plates or other areas...i.e. inside the rear rack. That had been done with the previous iteration as well.

Waterproofness should be pretty good...maybe not 100% but close. At least as good as before but we will hopefully refine the gasketing even more.

Sorry we won't be doing a group buy.

I don't think Torx is an option but I should know more tomorrow. There is a Philips under the seat but I guess hex would be choice #2 then. It'll be pretty easy to put one under there too. Just don't lose it or you'll be chasing down a cyclist.

Hmmm any more votes?

Thanks everybody so far!!

Dave

Nice job.

I'd like to be on the list for a black toolbox with a key.
I'd also like one of your bash plates.

I wonder if it would fit on the inside of my wolfman rack and still clear the tire and tank? I really like the idea of the tool box, but am not entirely thrilled with hanging it off my skidplate.

If I remember right the wolfman hoop is 11.25x6.25, but i wonder the clearance depth?

Thanks for the conversion!

I'll get more info up and some pics of this soon.

It should fit inside the rack but it'll depend on the rack too of course. I don't think it'll be a problem for most of the symmetrical ones.

As mentioned before too chances are it will fit on many other skid plates as long as they have a flat front. So that rules out the BMW/Touratech one because it's pointed profile takes too much space away.

More to come...

Thanks very much for the responses too you're all on the list.

Dave
