    I cut some wires here. Added some wires there.
    Does anybody know of a way to lock the glove box in the dash? I've found locks for the storage boxes in the bed and drop in safes for the center console box but nothing for the golve box in the dash.

    I wish there was a lock available for the glove box too.

    When I picked up my Tacoma I was given 2 sets of keys....one had a "Valet key" on the ring. I was told that it was used so you could lock your glove box then give the "Valet Key" to the valet and they couldn't get into your glove box when parking your car. The only problem is there is NO lock on the glove box! Way to go Toyota!

    If some knows that the heck that is all about I would love to know! (is the lock hidden somewhere that I can't find?)

    Never could figure out the purpose of the valet key for the Tacoma.
    Normally, a valet key won't access the trunk or the glove box... just the door and ignition.
    More modern valet transponders for high performance cars impose a speed/HP limiter as well.

    I can't imagine there would be much point to locking the glove box on a Tacoma. There is not much attaching the door to the dash. One good pull from the bottom and the whole thing would fall out. If you want/need to lock something, I would lock the consol.

    I agree, but i was thinking more for storing gps or something when parking in city parking where you have to give a key to attendant. Sure, if someone breaks in your car, that lock won't stop him but lock will help with other types of sticky fingers.

    ANY lock is only going to keep an honest person out.
    If someone really wants your stuff, they're going to break something to get it, whether it's your truck, GPS, phone, or your TV or computer.

    Locks only make your truck something that is not a target of convenience.
