Battery box lock

My new 2015 FC 28 only has a unlocked latch to battery box. What have some of you done to lock your battery box? Ideas please.

You can pick up a keyed lock that is a direct replacement for the stock catch.
Simply unscrew it from the underside of the lid and insert the new lock. You will probably have to play with the height of the striker for a snug lock. I picked mine up at Camping World.

You can pick up a suitable keyed tumbler lock at Lowes for under $5. Pull the current unkeyed latch and take it with you. Easy to match to correct size.
