Locking Fuel Door Anyone???

Does anyone know of a place that Fabricates lock mechanisms? Or has anyone on here done this themselves? What I'm looking for is a lock that can be added onto the factory fuel door with a lever on the back side that rotates up for the unlock position and horizontally in the locking position and have a seperate key to unlock it? I don't mind drilling into my fuel door if it's going to work, it will give me a piece of mind when I'm traveling. These trucks are easily screwed up if one wishes to tamper with it! So, any ideas would be cool...

I found this:
Cam Locks / Camlocks,Cabinet Locks,Furniture Locks,Hinges,Pulls,Handle Locks,Drawer Locks

You might try Home Depot / Lowe's to see if they have something like that. I'd be local and you could get started sooner. My office drawers have exactly that kind of locks on the drawers.

Not a bad idea to ward off the siphoners with diesel prices on the rise.

I think Stroker is more worried about someone screwin with the DEF fill spot. Hell even dumping in a liter of water would screw it up. Throw the % off

I was a locksmith years ago and we used to install cam locks on fuel doors all the time. There is a knockout tool that makes whats called a double d cutout. We charged $20 labor plus the $9.95 for the lock with a pair of keys. Might call locksmiths in your area to see what they charge.

Yep, this was what I was thinking when I started to think of the different types of locks that would work, Simple, easy to maintain, and cheap as heck lol. I've seen some aftermarket fuel dooors that look hideous, besides I like my Tuxedo Black fuel door.

Why not just get locking caps for the diesel and def fluid? Way safer than a flimsy 10$ lock that can be preyed off with a tiny screwdriver.

Thats a really good suggestion, do you have any input where one might find a locking DEF cap??? I haven't had any luck locating one yet. BTW, really like your vids on your truck.
