INSTALLATION:
Installation of the locker plug was exactly as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
.
Even for uncoordinated quamby like myself, this was an easy task.
It’s actually simplicity itself to mark the desired drill point in the liner with a half inch drill bit, then drill a pilot hole with a smaller bit.

Marking and measuring:

Drilling the pilot hole:


.

.
Once the pilot hole is complete, the half inch bit can be used to finish the hole.


.
Insert the threaded locker stud, place the rubber backed washer (rubber towards the wall of the liner/can and then screw on the nylon locker nut.

PERSONAL ASSESSMENT:
It’s small little after-market kits like this, made by small and micro businesses that can make life so much easier.
The American manufacturer is a recreational shooter and apparently an old, injured fireman.
.
Ammunition liners (or ammo boxes in the common vernacular) are very popular for their cheapness, common availability, and strong weatherproof construction.
The kit provides much needed added security in a cheap, yet efficient format to a very common container in widespread use in many industries.
.
I can see this upgrade kit being very useful for anyone who uses ammunition liners on a regular basis and wishes to prevent sticky fingers from taking inventory of your gear.
.
.
SUMMARY:
A really nice little kit to create your own secure containers. Best of all, they’re really easy on the wallet.
