Due to the tight spacing tolerance around the latch near the front strut of the GFC frame, any V2 Side Panel Lock Cover orders require confirmed fitment of the side panel Magnet Mount Test (provided upon request with Rear Panel Lock Cover orders). This way I can guarantee they fit and avoid unecessary returns. If you have already tested the fitment using the Magnet Mount Test, you can report your findings here and then let me know if you would like to order the side panel covers.
V2 Side Panel Lock Covers (For V2 GFC)
- 4 Black Lock Covers for side panels
- 4 Magnet Mounts
Customers with the following vehicles reported successful fitment tests on their V2:
2017 Toyota Tacoma with 5′ Bed
2020 Toyota Tacoma with 6′ Bed
2018 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 6′ 6″ Bed
2019 Ford Ranger Long Bed
2020 Jeep Gladiator with 5′ Bed
RAM 2500 with 6′ 4″ Bed
(If your vehicle is not listed above, I am unable to confirm that side lock covers will fit on your camper. A magnet mount test can be included with the purchase of rear lock covers.)
3D printed cover for the locks on the GFC V2. Moisture present in the latch can freeze. Lock covers can help limit additional moisture from entering and potentially freezing the latch.
- 3D printed using Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol (PETG)
- Colors available – Black
- Uses multiple strong magnets built into the cover and magnet mount.
- Uses a synthetic rubber weatherstrip seal
- No Cutting Necessary – You’ll just need a screwdriver
- Dimensions: 5.5″ x 3.25″ x .625″
Driving with lock covers installed:
Disclaimer: Lock covers are still being tested for use while the vehicle is in motion. Although others and myself have had no issues driving with lock covers installed, I can not predict how the lock covers will perform in all driving situations or conditions you encounter. If you decide to drive with the lock covers installed, you do so at your own risk. If you are unsure of the driving conditions or situation, I recommend removing the lock covers and store them when your vehicle is in motion. Remember to store them somewhere they won’t damage anything sensitive to magnets.
How they work:
When mounted to your camper, each lock cover utilizes 12 Neodymium magnets (6 in the cover and 6 in the magnetic mount). Each magnet has almost a 17lb pull strength allowing the covers to be pulled tightly. All magnets are encased inside the plastic for maximum durability. The magnets pull the cover tightly over the lock while a weather strip helps prevent water intrusion.
ATTENTION! – These are strong magnets. Please review the warning from the magnet supplier below.
WARNING: NdFeB magnets are very powerful and can be dangerous if not handled with the proper care. Do not bring within 12 inches of any magnetic based storage devices such as desktop or laptop computers, hard drives, floppy disks, cassette tapes, VHS tapes, ore credit cards. Keep away from computer monitors, VCR’s and TV’s. If you or someone in your household has a PACEMAKER, please consult your doctor about possible risks before purchasing magnets or products with magnets. Do not let these magnets snap together with their full force or they will break and quite possibly send small pieces of metal flying in all directions. Do not attempt to machine or drill the magnets. High temperatures during these processes could cause the magnet powder to ignite. Neodymium magnets can pinch very hard. For your own safety do not allow fingers or any part of your body to come in between the magnets. Do not ingest or inhale magnets. Attraction of magnets in the body may cause serious injury and require immediate medical care.
Lock Cover Installation & Care:
What to expect:
Quality & Tolerances: 3D printing isn’t perfect. Many 3D printed items require some type of post-processing to look good. Most 3D printed items we will offer will receive very little post-processing (mostly light sanding, trimming, or adhesive). Sometimes 3D printed items have minor imperfections during the 3D printing process. This is why there is a tolerance for some blemishing. With that said, I inspect every item while printing and before it ships. If I feel the quality of the item is unacceptable or won’t perform well, I will have a new item made.
Delivery Time: I 3D print at a standard quality. Some items in your order may take from half of a day to a few days to complete. I know it’s not fun waiting after you pay, and I do appreciate your patience.
