  1. Love the winch box and the fact that the tool chest doesn’t take up valuable trailer space. Very clean.

    Were the rings bending under load in the opposite direction?

    • If excessive force would have been applied, the rings would open all the way up and rest upon their hinges and the vertical backing. Simple leverage rules would have added upwards force on the rear screws alone. Now, the upwards force is better distributed along the horizontal axis instead of vertical axis alone. I reckon it would take way more force to tear them out this way as the rear screws would have to bend, eat some wood, and then be forced out. In short, the original way I had put them would have made the rear screws pop up more easily if something bad happened… That’s my logic about it.
