Just a thanks to Kwaka for the original post. Took a couple of hours fiddling filling of Alan keys. Till I had the Eureka moment. I had the lock barrels for the panniers unused which helped with depth etc. The bend and tip is much smaller than you may anticipate. The videos where so useful.

Hi All,

I've seen a lot of posts regarding lock barrels, with mixed results. This is one way I've found that works, I know that some chaps have made a removal tool from a 2mm hex key, and I understand that removal tools are available - do a search for Zadi lock removal tool.

Incidentally, my local dealer swears that the locks cannot be removed, he tells me that they have destroyed top boxes to do so.........

I've done the video in 3 parts cos I'm not a video guru, and put some pics to show the tool in more detail - apologies for the quality in pt2!! However if anyone wants to travel to Portsmouth for a looksee or to have barrels removed, then pop in and I can do you a cuppa as well!!

Does anybody knows how to adapt barrel to the key? Kwacka mention he adapted barrel to the key. Could I get some instructions?
