How Do You Install a Tool Box in a Truck Bed Without Drilling?

Truck bed tool boxes are an essential part of any truck owner’s inventory, as they provide a safe and secure storage space for tools and other items. However, many people struggle with the installation process due to the fact that most tool boxes require drilling into the bed of the truck for installation.

Fortunately, there are ways to install a tool box without drilling into your truck bed.

One popular method is to use a “no-drill” mounting kit. This kit consists of several pieces of hardware that allow you to securely mount the tool box without having to drill any holes.

The first step is to measure the length, width, and height of your truck bed so that you can select the right-sized mounting kit for your tool box. Once you have selected the correct size, you will need to attach the mounting brackets onto your truck bed. This is typically done by screwing them into place using self-tapping screws or bolts.

Once the mounting brackets are in place, you can then attach your tool box by sliding it over the brackets and securing it with nuts and bolts. Make sure that your tool box is level before fully tightening the nuts and bolts down so that it does not rock or move when you open and close it. Some people also choose to apply a sealant around the edges of their tool boxes for added protection against moisture.


Installing a tool box in a truck bed without drilling is possible thanks to “no-drill” mounting kits that allow you to securely mount your tool box without damaging your truck bed. Simply measure your truck bed dimensions, attach the mounting brackets with self-tapping screws or bolts, slide on your tool box, and secure it with nuts and bolts. For added protection against moisture, consider using sealant around the edges of your toolbox.
