Have you ever forgot to lock your tool box drawers when your tool box is mobil like mine. I have a number of times. The drawers come crashing out. I have left the keys in the locks and hit them with wood and they break off in the lock. No more, I made little doors that prevent all the above. Now I have to remember to close them. I used a little house on the prairie locks to hold the door shut.

Good idea
Should be easier to see that wood cover sticking out than a little key that you may have or may have NOT left in the lock

Very clever!
That should work well.
