Mates Rates Tools

At Mates Rates Tools, we know that for ute storage and security, nothing beats a sturdy aluminium canopy. We’ve got the experience to help you with a solution catered to whatever needs you may have.

If you’re a tradie or a fan of getting off the beaten track with your off-roader, we here at Mates Rates Tools have products to suit your needs.

With so many different products available, you can completely fit out your tray with everything you need all at one place, and all at an affordable price!



Our aluminium toolboxes are built to last. They’re all made of 2.5mm checker plate and feature strong key lockable T-locks for your tools’ security and piano-type hinge mechanisms.

The MRT9 is fully seam-welded so you can be sure of its durability and strength, and includes weather resistant seals made from rubber.

We have a range of four different sizes and shapes to choose between.


We have one toolbox available in polished stainless steel – the MRT30. Complete with stainless steel T-locks and weatherproof seals, the MRT30 is perfect for those looking for a rugged smooth finish on their toolbox.

Ute Canopies

There are four different generic sizes to choose from in our ute canopy range; dual cab, extra cab, single cab and part tray.

Each of our meticulously designed canopies feature a solid 2.5mm aluminium checker plate material and are completely seam-welded to add to their durability factor. They include full-length piano hinges that are hidden, rubber seals for the doors to keep water and dust out, gas struts, stainless steel T-locks, and flooring too.

We also offer optional extras such as ladder racks, front and rear windows, internal supports, an increase in its height/length/width dimensions, and a jack-off system (which allows you to remove the canopy from the back of your ute, and comes with a re-enforced flooring). If you’re looking for a smooth finish, we can provide a flat alloy finish as an extra, too.

All are backed up by a 12-month structural warranty to give our customers a true peace of mind when choosing us.


For everything else you need fitted onto your ute’s tray, we can do that too. Our product range includes several different sizes and specs of fully seam-welded drawer modules to fit all types of canopy systems, fridge slides, a water tank, dog box, and even mounting kits for your tool box and canopy.
