An Open and Locked Case!

Locked out!

Went to get some gear from the car boot and found the lock was rather tricky to open with the key! I quickly realise that it is on the way out! Solution is a new lock after 47 years wear and tear!


Finding a replacement lock is not as easy as it seems, ebay and google give me all sorts of locks and keys but not an XT boot set.

All the pieces ready to go!

So after doing the rounds, Rare Spares and various GT sites I eventually get onto

Superoo Falcon Spares and they have several locks but no keys with the best of them!

However, a good locksmith, Advanced Lock and Key,  can make up a key and we are in business.

New key and a spare!


Success! New keys – all working nicely!

Lock in!
