I bought the kit from Eglide goodies as well, when u order the kit u send them a copy of ur key and they send u the kit with the locks keyed to match. They also supple the hole drill needed to make the key holes. Just need to take ur time...
You can purchase cheaper cam locks if you don't mind having a second key.
I did this with some cam locks I purchased off the net for less than $20.
If you search "Removing Glove Box Lids" you can probably find the thread.
Pretty easy mod. The eglides are nice cuz you can have them keyed to your HD key but I'm a cheap ass and don't mind having a second key so I improvised.
I have the locks from eGlideGoodies on my 2012 Road Glide Ultra. If you order, send them a spare key so they can key code the locks to your ignition key. They work great and I can now secure small items.
Yea... Take your time and measure twice! I was going to make my own but the keyed to my keys option finally won me over to eglide goodies. I had to fiddle with the tabs that you screw into the fairing side of the glovebox to get them to latch. I think I had the tolerances too tight. They work very well if installed correctly. I keep an iPod in one of the boxes so I felt the locks were a good thing. Cheap insurance.
