Re: Bushtec trailer owners I need some help
Thanks for the help guys, I knew I could count on y'all to help me get through this "crisis".
The lock I have is the one in the last picture provided by LT_Pilot,
the lug is the same on all of them,
I was able to pry the box open with a scrap piece of baseboard in my brothers garage
(not many tools here)
I wedged the wood under the lid where the latch is and pushed up and forward at the same time
and she "popped" open with minimal scratches on the paint.
I wouldn't have tried that without the pictures,
because I'm enough of a "bulldozer" to break that lid in half
my problem turned out to be the finger latch itself,
it's just a piece of plastic and it split lengthwise where the pin goes through it,
not a real good design but replacement seems like the only option I have.
So many thanks friends, it was quite an embarrassing and inconvenient situation!
