Trunk release lock substitute

Post by johnny42 »



A couple years ago, I noticed one of my trunk release locks was gone. I've been using a zip tie in its place. Getting another lock or set of locks seems unlikely.

Wondering if anyone with this problem used nuts/bolts/washers/ etc to secure the rear trunk and could share what they've done?

Or, if your the resourceful type and have ideas on what to do or what not to do, please share.

Might be something on GoldwingParts.com, Randakks.com, or eBay (these may not be the right parts)

The part number is for a seat lock for a ton of old Honda's. But, it's also the trunk lock specified in the parts manual. Gotta decide if it's worth the $15 and having to use and carry another key if I want to remove the trunk.

Thanks for the links!!

You're welcome. Maybe you could have it rekeyed?

I remember using a hose clamp around the post when one of mine was lost....no longer easily removeable but at least it was secure. I searched eBay for quite awhile and finally found a pair at a good price. I installed both of them and the lone key stays on the garage wall. I'll see if i can find the original one....should be in the garage somewhere.

If the key only works a single lock, why not just keep it in the box until you get around to needing to use it? You can even put it on a retractable cord.
