Truck-box security system to keep tools protected

PITTSBURGH, Pa. — The Invention Submission Corporation (ISC) has announced that an inventor from Louisville, Ky. has developed a truck-box security device that would keep tools secure against thieves.

The Hot Box Security System is designed to sound an alarm if thieves or any unauthorized individuals try to open the box. By safeguarding expensive tools, the system is designed to give owners peace-of-mind, along with the assurance that the equipment they need will be available at a job site. The invention is also designed as a maintenance-free, easy-to-install unit.

Frustration from having his own tools stolen at job sites prompted the inventor to create the security system.

“I’m tired of thieves breaking into my toolbox, so I designed a security system to deter theft,” he said.

The Hot Box Security System is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information visit
