Removable RamBox?

by David Zatz on

patent

The people who brought you the RamBox, a series of locking containers integrated into the sides of pickup beds, have applied for a patent on a slightly different take on the concept: the removable RamBox. Steven St. Laurent pointed us to this patent application, which points out that the “removable storage device” (or, as we call it, box).

This is not merely a box placed within the current RamBox setup, which would result in a very small usable area; instead, the cover includes an integrated latch, which presumably stops it from rattling or moving around, at the same time that it provides a measure of theft protection. The lock would be on the side — observers may notice that the sidewall is closer to the wheel than in the current RamBox — and would, when unlocked, either allow the owner to unlatch the box from its restraints, or to open the box and reach the latch.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology. You can reach him by using our contact form (much preferred) or by calling (313) 766-2304
