WEATHER GUARD® PACK RAT® Drawer Units New Available With Black Arnour-Tuf Coating

Crystal Lake, IL — April 2004 – WEATHER GUARD® Equipment has introduced new, PACK RAT® Drawer Units with a black armour-tuf powder coating (Model Nos. 308-5 and 338-5) for both vans and pickup trucks.

In vans, the PACK RAT Drawer Units can be mounted in the rear or side door opening to offer easy access to small items without having to crawl in and out of the van. In pick up trucks, the PACK RAT Drawer Unit puts frequently needed items within easy reach without the need to climb up onto the truck bed. The drawer unit's low profile provides concealed and secure storage for heavy items without greatly reducing the truck bed area or the van cargo area.

Two new units are available, one measuring 8-78" high and the other 12-3/8" high. Both are 39-5/8" wide and 48" deep. Each PACK RAT Drawer Unit has a load rating of 425 lbs.

The PACK RAT Drawer Units are constructed of heavy-duty steel, and the bottom of the unit is 20-gauge steel reinforced with full length 12-guage steel skids. The reinforced construction allows material to be loaded on top of the unit, and anti-skid strips prevent slipping. The units must be anchored to the vehicle floor with Plusnut® fasteners that are provided.

The smooth gliding roll-out drawers are fully weather stripped and feature arc and spot welding for extra strength. Each drawer compartment measures 9-3/4" wide and can be divided for further organization. A one-touch push button latch system allows for easy, one-handed operation.

The addition of the new black armour-tuf coating models extends the original line of WEATHER GUARD Pack Rat Drawer Units that the industry has come to know.

Knaack LLC. makes and markets a complete line of WEATHER GUARD® Truck & Van Equipment, including drawer units, shelving and cabinets, and racks for full size and mini pickups, vans and utility vehicles, as well as KNAACK jobsite storage equipment, including storage chests, work stations, rolling work benches and hand tool boxes.
