As my husband is walking up to get the truck at Bobcat ramp last Sunday he notices a strap hanging out of the tool box, he looks closer and notices HIS jumper cables in the back of the truck rolled up nice and neat.

To the person that did this, I want to tell you how much we appreciate that you broke into our tool box and borrowed the cables in your time of need. We also appreciate the fact that you did not help yourself to any of the tools that was in that toolbox. Glad that we could help you in your time of need. You didn't break the lock, so you must have used some kind of master key and oh and thanks for making sure it was locked back. If your on the zone here, maybe you could manup and tell us how did you do it?

I can tell you it was not the carnahans, because if it was your lock would have been cut and you would have had a request letter for sponsorship under your wiper .

Good to see there are still honest people out there.

Strange story but cool they didn't take anything. Definately something you don't hear about everyday. Maybe the person that stole my tackle and deep cycle will end up doing the same thing? :rolleyes: Wishful thinking... :(

I didn't do it but I bought a new tool box from simpsons. The dude said don't ever loose the key. You'll have to cut the box to get your stuff out. I wanted to see if he was right. I grabbed my lock picks and had it picked in literally about 15 seconds.

A service company I worked for a few years ago had four trucks with toolboxes bought over three years, all boxes opened with the same key. buy a hasp and padlock.

Alot of those tool boxes all use the same key....but I could probably pick the lock on that thing in 10 seconds, ok maybe 20....comes in handy when your idiot buddy gets a flat, changes the tire, but locks his truck keys in the tool box on the side of the road:hitsfan:

Look on the lock an see if it has a # on it if so I have a key for it.
Not uncomon when you buy 50-75 boxes at a time per month they will have the same key #s.
PM me And I will tell you some of our tricks to keep the thieves out.

Basslady, Yes it just is not right for someone to do something like this but it could have been worse and they cleaned out your truckbox. At least they had the respect to roll the jumper cables backup and return it, if they even used them at all. They might have left that strap out as a warning for letting you know that the box was tampered with and is something that can be opened without your knowledge. Maybe the rolled up cables was to make an impact as a silent message. Nothing like needing something from that box and opening it and find out that it has been cleaned out.

JMO: Good karma that nothing was lost and I would look at the brite side and make it so it is not easy for someone to open it without a sawall's or bolt cutters.

I was the Garage Manager for Pratte Dev/Pulte Homes. At the time we had about 675 plated trucks & trailers with cross body & side boxes on
them to carry all the equipment per division ect framing/concrete/plumbing/post tension/Trim (doors & hardware ).
Some trucks only had 1 crossbody box and some had as many as 5 tool boxes. So yes in the course of 25 years there I bought thousands of to boxes.

It does make you wonder how many of those 675 are still being used in this current market/economy.
