Couple questions..

For those that have the rear fold flat storage are there locks on both sides of the rear seat to lock each seat individually?

Second, does it look like the lock can be added or the hinge swapped out to add locks to the trucks that don't have them?
Thanks!

My lock tumblers were in a plastic bag, one for each side. The key inside the fob operates it, but I cannot get the tumbler all the way in. Has anyone had to install theirs?

Thanks!

Pull out the cylinder, do all the tumblers retract with that key pushed all the way in?

Standard, we’ve all seen the lock on the driver’s side of the seat for the fold flat storage, but you brought up a good question about it being on the passenger side.

Here is a photo from a SuperCrew Limited I took at an auto show a few months back. It seems to confirm that the lock is on both sides.

I have the under seat storage and there are lock on both sides. Also, I did not install the cylinders. You as a customer should not be expected to install those.

Agree.
The dealership should have done that.

Yes, old thread. But some of the same questions the OP had. I added an under seat box and would like the added security of being able to also lock the seat. Any ideas on how that lock actually works to hold the seat down?
