|Several Compartments On The Right Side|
|No Lock On My Oil and Misc. Storage Bay|
|Old Twist Latch and New Lock Assembly|
|Old Twist Lock Before Removal|
|Lock With Retaining Nut and Striker/Cam In t=The Right Place|
While holding everything together screw on the nut hand tight with the striker/cam oriented the correct way. The striker/cam has a square cutout to match the one on the back of the lock so you have 4 positions. If the mechanism is LOCKED make sure the cam extends down to engage the bottom (could be side) of the compartment so everything stays tightly closed. When UNLOCKED it should move aside to let the compartment door open easily.
Once you have everything the way you'd like it, tighten down the retaining nut, so everything is tight. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN as you will likely crush the fiberglass of your compartment door!! Close the door, work the lock to test it and you're done!
|Main Compartment With Two Locks|
This will work on any compartment and you can always buy better locks as replacements. Many manufacturers are using the cylindrical versions now. As a side benefit, when you purchase another packaged lock with the same key number you actually get two keys....so the ones that broke get replaced. almost like magic!
