Locker lock ideas

Has anyone seen a latch that would work for the ski lockers of my Ballistic?

They open inwards, the hinge is on the inside edge. The flat area at the end of the locker would be the idea place to put a latch but open to ideas.

I am about to get the seats re-trimmed so now would be a time for me to install something.

I am not fussed about anything that locks but sick of doing MOB's for items that fly out the lockers when they open whilst getting some air.

This is my last option but would still need some modification as the catch wouldn't work like that as the side of the seat is foam.

Id ideally like something as flush as possible so I dont keep catching my legs when walking around

why not heavy duty velcro then stitched to the cushion you can buy curved needles and sow though.

Something that locks like a toolbox lid should work:

Sears.com

Not saying that model, but something similar (and preferably in stainless, if possible.) Lock goes in the body of your seat base, and an L- or O- shaped catch on the seat bottom for the hasp to go into when locking.

Put in some sexy stainless steel air vents allowing through ventilation, negates the need to open to air/dry.

I have similar on my cobra rib but they never fly open when airbourne as there is a certain resistance with the edge of the cushion and the tube.

My thoughts are;

1. After you get them re upholstered try shifting slightly the position where they attach from the bracket to the seat so that you get some slight pressure from the tubes which may be enouth to keep them down, you might also want to stick a small strip of hyperlon where they touch the tubes as a rubbing strip to prevent wear.

2. Alternatively Velcro as someone else suggested might be an idea, probably need some strong glue, you only want them to not fly open as opposed to being strongly shut.

3. Perhaps a length of bungee type of cord fastened on the inside that stretches enouth to allow access but is taught enough to stop them flying open.
