glove box lock replacement

Got a problem I have a 67 chevelle and I bought all new keys
and when replacing the glove box key I cannot get it figured out
I saw the replacement article on a trans am in the interior section
but the problem is I do not have the original key to stick in, to turn the tumblers- to pull them out
any help would be apprieated
thanks Michael

You could probably get away with drilling it out...

It shouldnt, just drill straight through where the key goes in, it wont be easy since its a decent sized lock but will work none the less.

Take the whole thing to a lock smith and they will be able to take care of it in about 2 minutes.

Why take a chance of damaging something else while drilling

drilling really shouldn't hurt anything at all, we do that all the time.
