WTB: Toolbox lock

My lock fell off this morning while riding. I'd like to source a used lock rather than forking over $40 for a new one

Anyone got one?

Thanks!

+1

Cabinet/drawer lock from a local hardware does the trick.

Yeah, what the dealer charges is a real crock!!
Your best bet is to do like Dragonrider suggests. Cheap and works just fine.

Hmm I saw that thread, I was hoping to use the ignition key instead of having to have another

May just end up going that route if no one has a spare stock lock lol

Even if you get a Kawi lock from someone here, you will have to carry a separate key for it, unless by pure luck you happen on someone with the same key number that you have. With a four pin tumbler, and say 5 pin lengths per tumbler to choose from, that`s 625 combinations. The way I see it you pretty much get to choose between a $5 lock and carrying an exrta key, or ordering a matching lock from Kawi and paying whatever inflated price they demand.
