*** Sorted *** GIVI Topbox lock m@#rtoe... Help please
« on: July 28, 2015, 10:55:14 am »
Morning all

The lock on Atigun's topbox has jammed. The key goes in, but refuses to turn. I've sprayed Q20 in the slot, in the hopes that it was just a sticky tumbler, but this hasn't helped at all.

Any suggestions please...!

Thanks

Try (if not yet done) pushing the latch inward a tad, then turning the key.

If you had a psychic midget who killed someone, you would have a small medium at large.

Apologies!  I thought you were serious.

I will get with the program.

On a serious note, does the top box have a lock mechanism that looks something like this?
Because I was actually being serious when I meant drill out the lock and just get a replacement lock, they aren't expensive.

Sorted thanks folks...

First tried AMZ's idea of pushing the latch inwards, but it didn't work. I then tried Silvrav's idea of using a (smaller than his) lever and pulled the latch outwards, and the key turned.

I've sprayed the latch / lock with plenty Q20 now, and it seems to have solved the problem.
