Open Sky Touring Frequently Asked Questions
If you’ve bought some of the Expedition Boxes and are wondering how to attach or remove the lids and latches, this video is for you.
Due to the custom seal, some people have reported an initial difficulty getting the middle latch closed down once they have assembled the lids. Rest assured, this is pretty normal and will come good as soon as the seals have been compressed for a while. The trick to getting it closed is to pull the tub upwards as you push down on the latch. It might be tough at first but it will close. Then leave the boxes closed for a few days to allow the seals to compress, and this issue will be a thing of the past.
Below we show the simple technique of getting the lids on and off.
As the name indicates, these boxes have been designed for the outdoors. Whether you are touring the country, camping, boating or fishing, they can go where you can go. They are built to last and take a heap of punishment.
