Toyota Locking Glovebox Insert. I created this just like I do all of my products, out of necessity.
1984-1988/89 Toyota Trucks and 4Runners are notoriously easy to break into, and did not come with any kind of a locking glovebox from the factory. My personal 1989 4Runner has a Softopper on it, so it has zero security for when it is parked.
This 16G Box is designed to make the maximum of your space while providing extra security inside the OEM Glovebox. Laser Cut, CNC Press Bent, and Hand TIG Welded by Hugh Himself, these fit nicely and discreetly inside your truck. Incognito is good.
We all know the factory glovebox is pretty dinky, and if someone wanted, they could just yank it off of the dash – so provisions for a heavy duty cable are included. This cable loops around the steel crossbar behind the dash, and if your vinyl cover between the dash and glovebox is still intact, no one is the wiser. A short leash if you will, its not going far.
Of course, nothing is 100% secure in this world, we don’t claim as much. Think of this as a deterrent. An extra piece of mind. Hell, it beats hiding your wallet under the seat that’s for sure. *It is also not a bad idea to install a kill switch inside the glovebox, these vehicles are going up in value and theft has been a big problem since they were new. A common modification that we should all look into.
Install is simple, with basic hand tools and the only modification to the vehicle is a small hole drilled in the back of the plastic glovebox for the cable. Otherwise basic hand tools work a dandy.
I wanted to powdercoat these, but Covid has rendered a bunch of our local shops closed, and the rest don’t do too nice of a job, so I’ll leave them raw steel for now (priced accordingly). Paint/Powder/Let It Rust to suit ya…
Comes with Hardware, Lock Cylinder with 2 Keys, Cable System, and detailed PDF instructions (Pay Attention at Checkout, Downloadable Instructions). And as always, a few HHB stickers…
