I have just purchased a 2008 GL1800 with air bag. That model only has the one left side glove box which is not lockable. Has anyone attempted to add a locking feature to that glove box. This is not a necessity but would be a great convenience. All ideas appreciated and welcome.

Thanks to FitzAL, nsjoe and Gimpy for your welcomes and comments. If I can figrue out something creative I will post with pictures. One thing I see reading through the forum threads is just about anything is possible totally dependent on how much time and $$$'s your willing to invest.

Reggie, I'm not familiar with the 1800 or the storage options it has. I just know on my 1100 that the right side locks and the left side snaps. As a result I always used the left side compartment and very rarely the right side. You might find adding a lock turns it into a PITA.

The simple answer is yes. Take it to a locksmith and tell him what you want. He (if he's a good locksmith) should be able to fix you up with a lock using a mailbox (or similar)lock.

I've read that the components from the non-airbag right pocket can be made to work. I just don't remember where I saw that

Hello and welcome from N.Idaho to the best Goldwing forum on the net !



If you want to do it yourself, there are many types of mechanisms that could be purchased fairly cheapy at Hardware stores, or if you wanted a nicer stronger lock, a good locksmith could sell you many types.
