Under seat storage drawers are a great use of space, but a lockable place to quickly stash valuables is what’s most handy.

The new Cruiser Consoles under seat storage drawers have a sizeable useable space with the internals measuring 390mm long, 140mm wide and 90mm high. They extend fully for easy access, and the slides are designed to last with a 45kg load rating.

The drawers are sturdy and Australian made. They are designed to fit the 76 and 79 Series LandCruiser.

The drawer attaches to the underside of the seat. It slides back and forth with the chair, which means the two don’t interfere with each other, plus the drawer is easy to get to regardless of the seat position.

These drawers are the perfect spot for storing the usual phone, wallet, sunnies, and parking coins. We like to keep our satellite phone and PLB in the cabin in case of a crash. These under seat storage drawers are a secure place for storing items like these too.

Cruiser Consoles offers these as a single drawer or a pair, and they are quick and easy DIY install.

First, it’s a simple matter of bolting the mounting brackets to each drawer. The brackets ship inside of each drawer.

Next, it’s a matter of removing the seats and bolting the drawer to the underside of the chair. The mounting brackets sandwich between the slider and the base using existing bolt holes and bolts.

Lastly, it’s a simple matter of re-fitting the seat back into the Cruiser.

When travelling there is often no option but to leave valuables in the car. These drawers offer great peace of mind.
