    Had a Tuffy glove box rekeyed.

    I bought a used Tuffy locking glove box for my CJ7 with no keys. Cost to have it rekeyed was $25 which I thought reasonable for 2 double sided keys. Is it normal for those Tuffy boxes to be opened only when you have the key in the lock? Not a big deal, just curious. Thanks.

    It's a push button lock. Turn key to 3 o'clock and push button to open. Turn key back to 12 o'clock pull key out and it's locked.

    My center console and under seat drawer does not require the key to be installed to open.

    No, our JK Tuffy glove box can be left unlocked without the key in it and it works just fine. In fact, all our Tuffy's work that way. One glove box, one half console, one hood lock, and two tubby covers,

    Fixed it. Someone (likely the locksmith) rotated the cam that the push button activates. Loosened it, turned it 90 degrees and it works like it should. Key at 12 0'clock is open and counterclockwise to 6 o'clock is locked. Key comes out in either position. Need to find a new locksmith I guess
