Default Where to find Lock for Glove Box 88 PU

I understand talking with Derek at Stevenson that Glove Box Locks were not a option on the Pickups or 4Runners in 88. Does anyone know if there is aftermarket lock for that glove box?
Thanks

I usually find what I need at McMaster.com when it is a hard to find item. Search cam locks and I bet you find something you are looking for.

A locked glove box on a soft top vehicle is an invitation to break it open IMO. After all if its locked there must be something worth stealing inside right?

Maybe I should be looking for something that applies a electrical current that will disable someone if that is their intentions..........

Can you find any similar Toyota product (Camry, whatever) from that era that uses a lock? Time for a junkyard run to examine what's out there. Would a 2nd gen lock ('90-95) work? A generic cam lock would work, but would look less 'factory'

I agree, though - all they will do is trash your glovebox door prying it open. I'd vote for a different, locked, hidden compartment.

at least it will keep honest people honest. i put locks on everything. call me paranoid, but i've been ripped off too many times. my glove box on my 40 has got a lock with most nothing of worth in there. the only stereos i've had unlocked in my 40 were junk and even they got stolen....too bad the a-holes didn't get caught stealing my junk stereos.

I agree that they could probably pry the glove box open. So therefore, I have turned my attention to a Security Box that bolts to truck and has a lock. It's bad when you can't trust people these days. I have locking gas caps on all of my vehicles..............

A locked "tool box" or similar in the back will probably be more secure as well has hold much more.

I never had an issue with my 40 in Salt lake. Just pulled the stereo faceplate and left her open. Had a plastic Rubermaid tub in the back with misc recovery crap. Didn't look valuable and nobody bothered it.
