CRYSTAL LAKE, ILL. - November 2008 - The new aluminum WEATHER GUARD®
Low-Profile side boxes are now available from Knaack LLC. The new Low-Profile side boxes combine massive storage space with maximum rear-window visibility.

The innovative Low-Profile design of the side boxes sits just above the bed rail to keep rear sightlines intact but the extra-wide design allows for the utmost storage space.

The new Low-Profile side boxes come with an Extreme Protection(TM) Lock, protecting each box against break-ins. An automotive style latch provides smooth "one-touch" opening. The boxes are built to take on years of hard work, with heavy-gauge diamond plate aluminum construction and durable clear or black finishes.
