Pretty cool. I want to figure a way to lock and unlock the hatch, not pop it. You cant rotate the tumbler on the lock from the inside.

well the only time I would unlock it would be to open the hatch never thought about locking/unlocking it .either way the inside tumbler is broken on mine so cant see how it would work

Very cool. The doors on my 3 door dime are already shaved and have door poppers and I was thinking of shaving my hatch lock on the outside.

This will be a great way to do it.
