Is there any way I can put a lock on this gun case?

    The description says it has four lockable latches. What do you have in mind?

    The description says lockable.

    I would take that to mean you can put those small padlocks on it.

    I have seen cases like this before. What they have is a small key hole on each latch. The latch it's self is lockable from what I can tell of the photo.

    What I want is to put a lock on it so other people can't open it. Like a combination lock or something. Problem is, by looking at the picture, it doesn't look like I can. Do any of you have any ideas on if there's a way I can still put a lock on it?

    Is there any close ups of the latches so I can see?

    I just saw a picture of the case closed on Amazon. I can see the little holes on the latches that lock it. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Not to sound too ghetto, but couldn't you buy a padlock with a long shank (or hoop whatever it is called) & just drill two holes by the carry handle? You wouldn't have to completely remove the lock, just unlock it enough to swivel & use the long loop to back the unattached end of the loop through its hole, right?

    Not a thing MP1000, Do like the idea ORANGELLO has. That just might work. The other idea I had was screw or bolt on a hasp with a combo lock latch so you can put it on once the case is closed. Bit i think the above idea is a better idea. Good luck with that.

    It says LOCKABLE. That probably means it can be locked, probably with one key that operates all four latches. Why not just go to the Plano website, find their contact info, call them, and ask them?

    a drill a few rivets and a rivet gun and it will be lockable in a matter of minutes.
