WEATHER GUARD® Boosts Value of Flagship Saddle Boxes

 Crystal Lake, IL – March 9, 2010 – WEATHER GUARD® continues to build on its success by enhancing three more of its flagship saddle boxes with new attachment points for increased security and new, improved organization capacity. Saddle box Models 126, 117 and 116 follow with the enhancements made to the Model 127 saddle box which were very well-received by customers.

The enhancements are now on display at the WEATHER GUARD booth #2501 at The Work Truck Show held in conjunction with the annual National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Convention in St. Louis.

The new and convenient attachment points are used for securing tools and materials in the truck bed while new “Easy Find” organization includes an adjustable metal tray, a new removable parts bin and a level holder.

“Our end-user based research showed a very positive response to these enhancements on our Model 127 so we decided to expand them to the 126, the 117 and the 116,” said Mike Sover, Senior Product Manager. “These upgrades provide additional value to the end-user at no additional cost.”

These upgrades increase security and productivity.  The attachment points offer the user the ability to safeguard tools and supplies by running a cable and lock to the truck box for extra protection. The “Easy Find” organization improves productivity since equipment is easier to locate.

Like all other professional line products from WEATHER GUARD, the newly enhanced models offer an industry-leading Limited Lifetime Warranty.
