Deck Seat Locker Lock that Doesn't Hurt

I removed my hasp lock from the deck storage locker because of the resulting bruises every time I brushed by it. I just had some items lifted form my dock and because I now have an expensive inverter down there I feel the need to lock this thing up with something that doesn't cause injury.
I've seen some online that are nice (like this: https://www.locksonline.co.uk/Marine...g-Devices.html) but they are expensive and I'm not sure it will fit on mine. Here's another that's not as expensive, but again, not sure if it will work for the seatlid type locker and it looks like all the keys across the world are simple and the same so that's not very secure...

https://www.amazon.com/Amarine-made-...rds=hatch+lock

Anyone out there have a good solution for this that would fit a seat locker on a 34 O'Day?
I'll take a picture of the seat here in a couple of hours when I get back over there.

Re: Deck Seat Locker Lock that Doesn't Hurt

The coolest, easiest solution was one I found on a boat I bought years ago. Line is fixed to the underside of the lazaret lid, led by blocks to the main cabin next to the companionway ladder. There it was pulled tight and secured to a jam cleat. All you have to do is secure the main cabin entry and you are secure. You're lazaret lids are also secure for rough sailing. I haven't done this on my new boat yet but I intend to.

Re: Deck Seat Locker Lock that Doesn't Hurt

That is a great idea. The only downside I see is that I often get things out of the lazaret without unlocking the boat (kind of a storage area for my dock) but I think I will incorporate this idea. I'll have to get some zero-stretch rope...

Re: Deck Seat Locker Lock that Doesn't Hurt

I just removed all four of these blasted things from my cockpit! I too got tired of the bruises; I'd rather have the unsightly holes.

Will listen in for suggestions as I'd like to lock everything up if possible.

My only thought was installing a lock on the inside of the locker that has a key hole to the outside. Something that you find on a file cabinet with a hook that swings up.

Yep, I've done this. Of course it depends on the boat layout etc, but a great way to go. Often you don't need blocks, just an eye fitting for the line to go thru and turn directions.
Another thought, if you have a Lazarette, and can leave the hasp on that without damaging your legs, run the lines to inside the lazarette, then lock it.
