Locking tool box

Hi all!

I'm searching for a small locking toolbox/box that I can mount securely on my bike (2015 gs). Touratech has one that mounts to the oem pannier rack, not the zega pro version. I have found a few, but again, only for the oem.

Any suggestions would be great.

I got one from Adventure Designs. Is very sturdy and locks on in the place of the pillion. https://www.advdesigns.com/rurelopiboxf.html

I actually tried that one, well made etc. My only issue is that I can remove the box from the bike in about 2 seconds. It's still locked, but no longer on bike...so bad guy can open at their leisure...

I considered that, since the locking mechanism is partially exposed behind the seat; but if you aren't familiar with how the BMW seat locks work, it may take longer to figure out how to get a screwdriver in there and open the lock. A lock's just going to keep an honest or lazy person out anyway...

I see that Touratech and Adventure Designs recommend removing of the rear wheel splash guard if riding off road as it will hit and break. Also saw that mentioned on the Wunderlich model 2799116, but only if you have lowered suspension.

A wish is a desire without an attempt.

I rarely carry a passenger so I removed my rear seat and installed a BMW accessory luggage rack, it has a locking cover, underneath I keep a tool roll and pair of leather work gloves.

I have a SW Motech pillion luggage plate monted in lieu of the pillion seat. It locks in the forward position making it much more difficult to remove (note: In this picture I had it locked in the rear position). Added a Harbor Freight knockoff of a Pelican Case with four bolts for under $30. It is water tight, lockable and holds tools and air pump with ease.

Yes. For those who have the box, ping me and I'll tell you how to steal it!

I returned the box and informed them how to do it...
