The Hobie Toy Box (H16) does not come with hasps or any hardware to lock it with. Does anyone have any photos or ideas on how they attached a hasp or other locking device to their Hobie Toy Box? Thanks.

Put a hasp on either side of the rear cap and two on the forward lid. It works great on mine. Buy a set of four keyed alike locks so you only have to carry one key.

Anyone have pictures of a locked toy box? This is on my project list this week.

Also, does anyone know how to get another end cap for the Toy box?

Old thread but I too am looking for ways to lock my toy box up for mast up storage on my trailer come spring. Read the hasps idea but pictures would help. Thanks.

We don't have a locking system.

I swear I took some pictures but I haven't been able to find them.

You need to lock the top opening and the rear/main opening. I put two hasps on the top opening and two on the rear/main opening. They aren't anywhere near 100% secure but I like to think that they deter someone from messing with it. On the top one I put one hasp on each side. One the rear/main one I put two hasps on the bottom left and right outside edges. As for hardware, I would suggest some kind of backing block because screws will easily pull out of the plastic.

I've considered doing away with the hasps and dropping a metal bar through the rear opening and locking on both sides of the bar. I've seen this on many sail tubes and it is the simplest and most effective method.

I appreciate the info guys. Just a visual person so pictures and such help. Next time up at the farm I'll take a good look at the toy box and go from there I guess.

If someone would like a good condition toy box though and make me a good offer... it just might be yours. :roll:

Being a visual person I took some pictures to share the set up with others thinking of doing the same. I have the parts list of what I used from lowes if anyone wants it.

Looks good. You could rivet the hinges too if you were really worried about security. Although it's still soft plastic. It wouldn't stop someone who really wanted your sails.
