Can the latch be keyed? Now it only has a simple allen key nut.
I don't think you realize just how sought after a police tank in good shape is... they are not all that common and are handy as hell.

Regarding the key, if you can call it that, all of them that I have seen are the same square drive that simply screws into the tab on the tank.

I also have a police tank for my project, and my tunnel is a bit smaller and round. I also want to do the phone-charging cord, and also figure out how to key it. If I figure these out I will let you know.

Another idea I had was to hide a kill-switch in there, especially if I can key the box, with a quick-release on the wires to make pulling the tank easy.
