Mine is on the front, not the side. If I got the box, I wouldn't be able to open it. Have to admit, I don't use it much. You are limited by the size of the opening. Bulky items are easier to get at by lifting the seat.
Another issue for ETI may be that you can get water in the compartment ( driving rain ). I've had a wee bit when I didn't put the rock guards on.
