FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CORTEZ, Colo. – Tuffy Security Products, a leading manufacturer of secure storage for serious gear, offers three under-seat security boxes specifically for late model Ford F-Series trucks with Extended or Crew Cabs. These boxes are designed to accept long guns or other long items of sensitive tactical security gear used by law enforcement personnel.
Built to the same very high standards as other Tuffy Products security boxes, the under-seat boxes install using existing OEM mounting holes, and do not interfere with passenger comfort. The full-width boxes match the factory spilt seat design, with access from the short (right) side or long (left) side of the seat. Chamfered front corners allow easy access to the seat release levers, and provide unimpeded passenger access. Tuffy’s stealthy design keeps the boxes and their sensitive contents from prying eyes. These boxes install quickly without drilling the floor pan. An innovative mounting system allows an officer to easily remove an Under Rear Seat Lockbox when the lids are unlocked without the need for tools. Optional foam inserts, carpeted liners and Auto-On LED interior lighting can be added to these products for convenience and to cushion and protect the contents.
The Ford F-Series Under Rear Seat Lockboxes offer a significant amount of storage space. The SuperCab (extended cab) Model 319 (2015-up F-150, 250, 350, 450, 550) delivers over 3000 cubic inches (over 49,161 cc) of space, while the Model 316 for Super Crew Cabs provides over 4500 cu. in. (over 73,743 cc). Model 309 fits Ford F-250, 350 and 450 model years 2003-2016, and have 2170 cu. in. (35,560 cc) of storage space.
The under-seat boxes are made of 16-gauge, black textured powder coated steel, featuring welded tab-loc construction. It features a pick-resistant 10-tumbler double-bitted lock with Tuffy Security Products’ Pry-Guard patented locking system to deter theft. The Pry-Guard latch mechanism allows the cover to shut without being locked, with exceptional strength compared to other latches with 1/8-inch (3.18 mm) thick metal components and a welded steel striker. The Tuffy Under Rear Seat Lockboxes for the Ford F-Series trucks use a Pin-Lock hinge and a built-in lid stop for added security. Additionally, the lids feature 100 percent weather seals around the perimeter to combat moisture and dust intrusion.
“We feel these Under Rear Seat Lockboxes for the Ford F-Series trucks aid the law enforcement community who use these trucks with their long gun security,” said Tuffy Security Products Marketing Manager Chip Olson. “These boxes reflect Tuffy’s nearly 30 years of providing the best of American design and craftsmanship. The heavy-duty construction assures our storage solutions will protect expensive gear and supplies for the life of the vehicle and beyond.”
