    That’s great to hear! I’ll look into black combo locks through Trimax.

    I can get this one, but it uses a key.

    Yeah as more sell I’ll have more buying power and maybe Trimax can make an exclusive black combo lock for me. In time.

    There is a company that has a lock box that is a 4 combo style drawer system. I have one and it works great when i am at the beach or want to leave my truck somewhere and not worry about a car key

    because it advertises the lock box. if you see HV there and know what that is, you'll likely find something inside. yeah, not that it's easy to steal or open, but security is security and folks don't want to draw any attention. i have mine installed but will paint the end cap black soon. I'm not keeping anything in it yet.

    Okay just had a look at the website...I am excited about this lol.

    Couple questions..
    - You mentioned that it slides right through the reciever. Would it be possible to extent the length of this to basically get as much usable space? (Not keeping this limited to key storage)

    - Would it be possible to sleeve the hitch pin? I see that its tight in there, but even just tacking a sleeve to assist in keeping the elements out.

    Do you have a location here in town where I can come check these out?

    Sorry if these questions have been answered, still going through the thread.

    Also maybe throw a link in these threads to get some local traction.

    If yours is still in perfect condition you can send it back and I’ll send you one with a blank end if you want.

    Hey man great questions! Yeah they’re available at buzz. If you pm me I can also meet you somewhere in the city to save a bit on shipping.

    We’ve looked into doing a sleeve to seal off the vault completely, but it would reduce the space inside, as of now I havent heard of anyone complaining about water getting in. We are looking into doing 2.5” version that will work with 1ton trucks. As for extending the vaults, it’s not too hard but I would worry about fitting on all vehicles. I know that the current size clears everything.

    I had a look under my tundra and there is maybe 2 inches from hitch to spare tire. Not really enough to make a huge difference. I woumd assume itd be about the same on a taco.
    I will be picking one up really soon.

    Just did a road trip from San Diego->Big Sky, MT->Sun Valley, ID->San Diego. 10 days. I put a spare key in the Vault, wrapped in cellophane and aluminum foil. We had a ton of snow, slush, and ice. Over 48hrs in MT it probably snowed a foot or two. The temps were as low as -15f. For probably about 3-4 days there was a perma layer of ice on the truck. Never got to park it inside. I think the Vault was probably shrouded in ice for a day or two. When I got home, there was some moisture in the Vault, which somehow even penetrated the foil and cellophane. Not complaining, just FYI comments. To be expected after hundreds of miles on icy roads and probably the coldest temps I'v ever been in. No issues with the lock either. Really cool product.

    A couple photos of the 3rd gen fit before the trip:
