    alot of folks are using j-hooks....drilling thru only the box and using the rail system to catch it on.

    Kobalt toolbox mounted with J-Hooks, Locks on storage compartments in bed, Window Visors, Toolbox LED Lights, Underbody Lights, More to come.
    Well my Kobalt box already had the holes drilled.. So I got 4 j-hooks... 2 for each side..
    I put them where they would catch under the rail.. It hasnt budged in 4 months..
    I can try and take pics if needed...
