I pulled the box this weekend and it was absolutely covered with dried mud. I knocked/brushed that mud off and opened the lid to find my spare key fob to be clean and dry. Other than the dirt, the only sign the box had been used was a little bit of rust on the magnets.
I use this to house a small wireless thermometer in my truck, which broadcasts outside temps to my phone and permits me to monitor outside temps while driving. It is attached to the inside of my front bumper and has not moved a millimeter. There are no issues with the the thermometer’s Bluetooth connection to my phone … I use this to house a small wireless thermometer in my truck, which broadcasts outside temps to my phone and permits me to monitor outside temps while driving. It is attached to the inside of my front bumper and has not moved a millimeter. There are no issues with the the thermometer’s Bluetooth connection to my phone from within the box. The inside is bone-dry after many drive thru car washes. Not certain about hitting it up close with a 2000 PSI pressure washer, but this thing is pretty tough and I’d be surprised if it did not handle that as well.
No,but the best one of these I have ever seen
I’ve had mine for over three thousand miles, rough roads and all, and the box works for what it is designed for. It’s worth the cost.
Nope. But I bet it works!!
No. You should not need to put one box in another regardless what box you have
I’ve driven over 3’000 miles since attaching it, most on interstate, some on upgraded farm road, and it’s still there: Yes! It works.
It’s pretty durable but I can’t say for sure if it’s heat resistant. I’ve used it more times then I can count hiding it underneath the car and other places on my vehicle that get pretty hot and nothing has happened to it . It’s worth the buy in my opinion saved me more then once
I found a spot for my key box that allowed me to use a zip tie to help secure it. Good point though I will check the magnets periodically for rust. The box does stick to steel very well.
Does this magnetic box that clips closed in any way stop you from locking your truck either I don’t understand the question or…… I’m going to go with no can’t see how it would ever in any situation ever!! Hope this helps lol
You probably received a different product. People buy different models and return them incorrectly all the time. This brand doesn’t make their product in black.
Standard gray more like the stock photo.
Info About Gorilla Box Magnetic Key Holder Will Hide A Key for Your Car – Key Hider Outdoor – Key Holder Under Car (Standard, Grey) (Reviews From Amazon)
I chose this stash case mainly because of its color. It seemed like it would be more subtle than shiny black like the majority of other stash cases on Amazon. It blends in perfectly with my car’s undercarriage. I’ve set a calendar reminder to update this review in 2 months. Am curious to see how it stands against the snow and rain we’ll be getting. Epstein didn’t kill himself.
Great box! Super magnets!!
I purchased three boxes (this and two MiniMags – The “2” and the Plus Extra Large) and tested for adhesion and water entry. All had 2 great magnets but the clear winner is this Gorilla Box. Then I placed all three boxes in a deep sauté pan and filled pan with water over the top of the boxes and left them for two days. The magnets held them under – all three were actually tough to get off the bottom of the pan. Opened the boxes and the Gorilla was completely dry. Check photo. The two MiniMag’s had a thimble each of water.
This was not a scientific test but… I’m buying the Gorilla’s for my project. I have no idea how either brand will perform at 70mph in driving rain, but… again. Anyway, these were all nice boxes – sturdy as hell and the magnets on all three impressed.
The Gorilla is roughly the same size and price as the MiniMag 2 – if you toss out the foam both should fit two sets of keys (2ea – key and separate fob). Certainly would fit a couple of key/fob combos and a large Tile (BT locator). If more space is needed you need the Plus Extra Large for $40ish. However there is nothing “jumbo” or “extra large” about it – it won’t fit a cell phone. A flip phone sure, but I’m a bit hard pressed to come up with a main stream application that the $20 guys can’t handle.
Magnet is very powerful there is no way this will fall off of a vehicle while driving. You almost have to pry it off the refrigerator to get it off. I filled the sink with water and held it under water for 1 minute and it did not let any water in enough said. I bought another brand a little smaller and the chrome plating on the magnet corroded bad because I mounted it on the front side of rear fender I think this caught alot of road salt and water. I will mount this one facing the rear which should help alot
Perfect for hiding your key fob
I wanted a way to keep an extra set of keys for our travel trailer that would be water tight, secure, and could be placed where it wouldn’t open up or fall off. I checked out several options, and read a lot of reviews. Most of the magnetic key holders didn’t impress, nor did the ones with a keypad. Found this and decided to give it a try. It’s large enough to hold all of our keys (7), is very sturdy, the lid closes very securely, and the magnets are extremely powerful. I have no doubt it will stay in place and be weather resistant. Exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommend.
Pros: As stated in “headline”, unit is heavy-duty hard plastic, secures very well to car and is waterproof.
I lost my old “slide open” version with the weaker magnet going over rough terrain, so wanted to try this. I have a Honda Civic and put it on the wheel well instead of beneath the car door like I used to. When I just checked it, it was filthy/mud encrusted on the outside, but the inside was clean.
Cons: Bulky, which is why I chose to attach to the wheel well – you could easily see the unit when looking at the side of my car.
Also, it is kinda hard to open, but I guess that’s part of keeping things water/mud proof!
I bought a separate one for my husband’s Toyota Avalon and it hides just fine under the door.
Needed a safe and secure method to mount blue tooth temperature sensor for a car that does not have a thermometer. This box hold the sensor perfectly inside the front bumper and does not interfere with the bluetooth connection to my phone. I know can monitor the temperature outside of my vehicle while driving by looking at an app on my phone.
I was looking for a hide a key box for a work truck. I am glad I purchased this product. With a water resistant box and extremely heavy duty magnets I am sure when the key is needed it will be in there. Ordering more to outfit our work fleet with them.
At first, my wife didn’t have the hand strength to get it open but she could after I worked with her on her technique. Twist your fingertips under the latch if that makes sense. Just a suggestion if your key is a transponder key you can have a non transponder key made cheaply that will get you in the door if you lock your keys inside. Plus if someone does find it they can’t drive away.
LOLOL Don’t do like my wife did and place it next to your exhaust pipe. That’s the photo.
I got this for an elderly friend that needed to have keys available in case the ambulance was called – again (911 but had to wait 20 minutes for someone to get there with keys to get to her). That won’t happen again! She removed the foam from inside the box and 3 keys fit easily. She said that it would probably hold 5. She tried it on her refrigerator and almost couldn’t get it off. The magnets are super strong so now she’s comfortable with it outside. I had read lots of reviews before selecting this one. Great product and value for the money. And it sure beats having 911 break down a door or worse being found dead.
