Childproofing Suggestions

Measure carefully to align the two pieces properly.

Truck Lock Repair Directions

If the door locks in your Chevy truck rattle when you drive, you can eliminate the sound with Velcro. The first step is to lift the door lock so it is in the up position. You’ll see a removable square shaped part near the bottom of the lock. Use a flathead screwdriver to pop out the part. By removing the part, you’ll be able to lift the entire lock off the attachment screw and out of the door. Measure and cut a portion of your Velcro’s loop section to place behind the door lock, but make sure that the Velcro piece is slightly shorter than your lock. By using a shorter piece, you’ll prevent the noise elimination product from showing when your door locks are down. Slide the door repair section behind the screws, and replace the lock.

Here's a video that may help explain the process.

Hook and loop fasteners can be used in a variety of around the house applications from decreasing clutter, keeping children safe and reducing irritating noises in your vehicle. When problems arise, consider using these fasteners to fix them.
