Locks

I went to Sears and got a set for about 30 dollars. I broke the key on my cornwell box, They had one that looked identical to my old one. The keys say Craftsman on them though, But I couldn't beat the price.

i dont know how old your snap on box is, but if you order the newer style lock and key its actually pretty nice.. it uses that round type of key that is used on vending machines, and the key it self is pretty nice, its a black wrench and the keyhole is a nut...when i get around to it i will take a pic of mine and put it up for you....maybe tomorrow night

Though not Snap-On boxes, I replaced a couple of mine with Some from Lowe's (or Home Depot, I forget). I took mine down there and matched them up to some simple and cheap cabinet/drawer locks. Two I discovered I could swap the "arm" on the rear over to the new ones. The third's "arm" wasn't swappable but I found one that would work fine with some trimming and filing. All three now have completely different keys though.
I've never needed to to really lock anybody out of my boxes so much as keep the whole things from being stolen. Cheap box locks work fine for me.
