I have a snap on tool box and the lock fell out of the hole and it’s locked. Any suggestions on how I can get it open without damaging it too much. TIA.

Should be able to get a screw driver in there and turn it; that's all the lock does is turn the lever.....though that is coming from no experience with tool box locks, just locks in general for like a filing cabinet and truck topper.

interesting first post with a just now join date... lol.

I would call Snappy. I'm sure they have a way to get in without tearing the box up, plus you'd be able to get a replacement lock at the same time.

I did text my snap on guy he hasn’t hit me back. This is my tool box at home and I was trying to avoid any extra fees if I can. Already paying for the box itself

Right but I was told the lock is in the back of the box. So I would need a long screw driver. And that would be hard to do without breaking at least one row open.

Hopefully he gets back to you and is willing to go to your house and help. Could always try contacting a local locksmith as well.
