broken toolbox lock
« on: July 17, 2014, 07:09:26 PM »
My one toolbox lock broke and I spilled the contents on the road. Does this happen often? I'm worried that a replacement will fail in the same way.

Yep, this has happened to me a couple of times and once I lost a brand new unopened set of throttle and clutch cables that I was keeping in the tool box.

Order a few replacement sets from various ebay dealers and when they arrive, try a dab of JB Weld on the internal clip.

Another option you may have some luck with is to go to a hardware store and look for mailbox locks of suitable size.
