Great price, but if it's the type with only ONE central lock I'd be very wary. I've had a Thule for over 10 years and it locks in three locations. When it's packed and your travelling down the motorway, I'm not sure I'd want to rely on one lock to keep it closed. My sister borrowed a friends Halfords box a few years ago and the lock failed in exactly this situation. Luckily it was on an A-road and the car behind was far enough distance away to take evasive action as the contents of the box (and the top of the box) crashed into the road. They may have improved the quality since then? But I'd be inclined to always opt for one with multiple locking points.

^ I always use a small strap and ratchet over the top of the box, alleviates the problem you described, and for only a couple of pounds.

That's a good safety tip for a budget box. Well worth it IMO.

Looks like it does indeed have the single lock.

Are these suitable for me to put my youngest in (6 years old) and a small Yorkshire terrier in?
