    Help Please - Need a replacement lock for my snugtop

    Hi all,

    I have a Snug top on my Hilux with no keys , wondered if anyone had any ideas how to source a replacement. I have called Snugtop UK who want over £100 for this tiny lock so i'm reluctant to pay that!
    I also bought a garage door look and tried to use this but the holes in the glass are a different width...

    Anyone have any ideas please?

    Cheers
    Dom

    Scrap yard, see if they have one with the keys. Or take the lock to a decent locksmith and ask if they can cut keys to fit it.

    I had the same problem but with my navara, I found something similar on e bay. I had to cut the bolts to suit but it worked, I phoned the supplier to make sure that the bolt centres for the holes were near enough. My holes weren't in the glass though mate, a 6mm drill bit did the job to make the holes a bit bigger and with a bit of jiggery-pokery it worked, leer snug tops don't supply to the UK but there is a few suppliers,

    google is your friend, mine costed £25 with the keys so I changed both of them,

    Not sure if it's too far from you, but try Hatt, West End Street, High Wycombe Tel. 01494 527189. They've done some fairly tricky stuff for me:
    - take new mortice locks and replace the levers inside so that they matched an existing mortice lock
    - removed a jammed key from another mortice lock with no damage to the door
    - picked a lock on a desk and then built up a key to match
