Most early model vehicles did not come equipped with drivers side door lock cylinders. This was due to a lack of parking in those days forcing people to park on the street. It was dangerous, and in some situations, illegal to exit your vehicle on the street side. Therefore, there was no use in having lock cylinders on the drivers side. For those of you that have equipped your vehicle with our Altman Easy Latch kit, you may now find yourself wanting to add a lock cylinder on the drivers side of your vehicle. Even if you have not decided to use our Altman Easy Latch at this time, you may still want to add a lock to your drivers side. For those of you, we have created a Lock Cylinder Keeper that will allow you to do just that.Our Lock Cylinder Keeper is machined from 6061 aluminum. It is placed inside your door and is held in place with two screws. After you have marked and cut your hole for your new lock cylinder, you just put the block in place, attach it, and insert your new lock cylinder. Then tighten the set screw to hold your lock cylinder in and you are all set. This is for the Keeper only. Lock cylinder is not included.
