    While doing this you can do the center console lock as well since it utilizes similar (If not the same) type of lock.

    got 3 matching # locks (exact same # as op (12121))....asked home depot salesman who said a couple of several #'s come in each box...soooo...i believe if you go to another home depot, or wait for another box to be opened at home depot, you can get all four matching #'s...i think it's worth the extra effort to get all 4 locks with the same key...ps...your local hd will call another hd to get your specific # sent to your local hd....anyway, a simple and well documented write-up....thanks

    I did this about two months ago and already starting to see the cheap home depot latches getting harder to open. Some sort of oxidation or something inside the lock makes it hard to get the key in and out. Any one have suggestions on how to condition the key hole a little bit? Silicone or something?

    I am already thinking for the winter time, I may have to remove the panel doors completely until spring.

    Thanks for the write up. I decided to only do one lock on the door with 2. It's secure enough for my taste and will be that much quicker to get open.
    I actually had to trim off a little more than just the tab so I could get the threads exposed so I could tighten the nut.
    Overall, I'm happy with the way this turned out.

    The boxes are vented inside so you would have to seal the entire enclosure. I have yet to see anyone take such a step.

    Let us know how it goes!
