High manufacturing standards help the On Box to provide excellent stability and lightness which is aided by the use of a square aluminium frame and legs.

No wood has been used in the construction of the On Box which avoids the problems of water damage, drawer swelling etc.

A nice touch is that the additional footplate slides neatly underneath the box when not in use.

There are two versions of the On Box available the 5-drawer and 4 drawer.

The 5 Drawer provides three shallow side drawers and two deeper front drawers while the 4 Drawer version has two shallow side drawers and two deeper front drawers.

You can make your choice according to your storage needs. A nice feature is that all the On Box’s feature integrated drawer dividers to keep spools of line, hook boxes etc. neat and tidy. In fact the design process led to the dividers being spaced to accommodate the standard sizes of line spools and accessory boxes. The drawers also feature frost resistant handles for ease of use on those cold winter days.

TROLLEY
A specially designed On Box Trolley can be fitted to an On Box in seconds and without the legs on the On Box having to be removed. Once in use the weight of the box is balanced over the two air filled wheels for easy transportation.
