Lock rear compartment?....

Has anyone come up with a way of locking the rear hidden compartments in their Rav?

I thought about installing some chest latches like these New 3 3 16x1 3 4 Brass Chest Latch PK Decorative Latches Locks 801710 | eBay but I don't think that answers your question

What are you trying to accomplish? Keeping the kids out or protecting the Crown Jewels?

If there is an RV/camper supply place nearby, it might be worth a visit. The one near me has all kinds of latches and locks for RV storage compartments.

Cheesycook, did you find anything to lock the hidden cargo box? I was hoping to find something very secure so I could lock firearms in the cargo box, but I have yet to find anything.

You could always install a small gun safe in the rear compartment, it can easily be bolted to the floor.
