DHR 21 in. x 27 in. x 4 in. Doc-Box with Window Permit Posting Unit

In use for nearly 26 years and preferred by builders nationwide & now internationally, the Original (DBW) Doc-Box with Window Permit Box protects plans & permits on job sites, and features a shatterproof, sealed viewing window. It also acts as job site signage with a warning to trespassers. The inside features a corrugated plastic tack board, an integrated rolled plan pocket and an aluminum prop arm to keep the cover open while in use. The hinges are rated for thousands of openings, and their side mounted location minimizes the possibility of direct moisture entry. The snap lock closure secures the lid and prevents the box from blowing open while remaining accessible (unlocked). The unique flange design is coupled with a deep overlap when closed to provide maximum weather seal. Predrilled with self-centering guides to mount on a wall or post, all units include mounting hardware and push pins. Designed by a builder for builders, The Doc-Box pays for itself after only a few uses and because it lasts so long, it's much more economical than "home made" units.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Box is fine, accept it has no devise securing the lid and I've already lost my bldg. permit. Will wrap a bungee cord around it from here on out. If you use this box, plan on something to secure the lid; it just flops down.
Pros: Durable, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Easy to Move, Good Size & Weight
Cons: not secure

It does what it was designed for. The window is nice, but doesn't justify the $20 increase over a standard box.
Pros: Durable
Cons: over priced
