I've always used Disklok's as part of my car security, and the Defender is no exception, but I can't just tuck it in behind the seat any more... it tends to move around quite a bit and is always out of arms reach when I need to refit it!
With the spacious load space in mind, I decided to build a custom Disklok storage box which will securely hold the Disklok when not in use. Admittedly this is my first piece of woodworking I have attempted solo since I left school, but I think it turned out quite well. Professional carpenters may wish to look away.
I did have a load of pictures from the build process, but my phone decided to delete them, so here are the only ones I have been able to recover.
The frame was made from 4x1" timber, 5 sections joined with 45° angles. This was then screwed to 6mm MDF sheet on both sides and finally covered in carpet tile, inside and out. Total cost, around £15. Just been out and the lock was exactly where I left it - in arms length ready to refit! Proper Job!
