That's what I meant, on our commanders we can grab the lock, but with dead locks or drop locks you cannot grab the lock.....sorry for the confusion.

I remember reading about guys just turning the locks to screw them on the rod further so they'd sit flush when the door was closed. Probably wouldn't be to hard to do that, and/or modify the tip by drilling/tapping it further so it goes down more.

It sounds like a good idea or you could buy some new ones at your local parts store.

Hi All,

Thanks for the replies. By Deadlocks, I mean not being able to open the doors from the inside once the vehicle is locked. This seems to be a standard security feature on most modern cars these days, but I don't think the Commander has them. I'm only asking because I believe some little toe rag has tried to get into my car as I noticed the door seal on the passenger side had come away from the frame one day and it looked like someone had tried tio open the door by inserting something between the door and the frame. Of course, if the vehicle had deadlocks on it, it wouldn't matter as they would not be able to open the door from the inside anyway

Then all they would have to do is slide something down there and hit the unlock button by the window switches on the driver door.

That's a lot harder to do though due to the proximity and smoothness of the switch.

The pop lock is extremely easy to get to with a door wedge and a specially shaped hook. Someone who knows what they're doing can have your door open in a matter of 10 seconds. To press the switch they'd have to get pretty lucky.

I've seen the reach tools in action, it's not hard to get a slightly bent steel rod to do your bidding if you can get it slid in there. Haven't locked my keys in it yet so I'm not sure how well a wedge or an airbag pry's the door.
