I have a larger volume left pannier, which I will use on the right side (I have fitted a low silencer).

How do I remove the lock from my old pannier and fit it into the new one?I have the keys. Luckily the vendor of the old pannier has already removed the lock from that one, and supplied it with the pannier.

THe white pannier is the old one, I want to remove it's lock and fit it to the new one


THis is the white pannier, which has the lock which I would like to remove and re-use in the new pannier




THis is the new larger pannier, which has had the lock removed already

As above, only way other than drilling it out,
I'm sure someone on here made said tool and put dimensions which seem to be fairly critical for it to work and it may take a few try's,
have a look in the how to section,

I made a tool, it worked a treat and I believe it is posted here either in a How To or in another thread. Please don't ask me to go back and dig it out as that exercise consumed a lot of posts and replies. I even sent one to another member so maybe they can chime in. But, rest assured, with the tool I made the removal is the work of 10 seconds to pull the barrel. Drill only if you completely give up as you are highly likely to damage the case. A Dremel and patience are a better way. Posting images here has become too bothersome so I'll not offer to do so but can email you the entire set of pictures and specs with a video too (I think) if you PM me an address....

I made a tool to get the locks out. I'll have a look tomorrow to see if I can find it. If I do I can post it to you.

All the best

This is the vital dimension. It helps to put a nice 'handle' on the back end of the wire tool to get leverage. This is wire from a locksmith shop, kinda hard and tough. I tried using an Allen key as others have done but it did not work well for me. I have a little video that shows how easily this works, if anyone wants it.

Big hint: Try your tool on a barrel that you have not installed. You'll soon see how it makes the pawl retract. That way, it's much easier to grasp what to do when you stick it in the lock that's mounted in a pannier.

I used an old very small screw driver, that gave me a handle as it makes it easier to manipulate the locking tab.

I was also a lock short but found the old locks were quite close to operating with the relevant keys. with the barrel in a vice I inserted my key in and just filed down the tabs that stuck out, that seemed to work.
My old sprint now has all three boxes using the ignition key (I used to have a bunch like a prison warder)
I never touched it, you can't blame me, it went off when I was cleaning it.

Thank you all for this thread. After making the tool, I removed the old, and install the new lock in two minutes.  :460: 
Took me longer to get the tool right.
