Default Install lock on center console

Has anyone installed a key lock on their center console? I would like to but don't know what type of lock to put in and where I should put it. The center console lid arm rest on my 07 maxima se extends out, and I don't want the lock to cause problems with that.
Any help or pics is greatly appreciated!

For when I park at airport lots.. They need the key so putting my stuff in the glove box or the trunk won't work. I like to have piece of mind when I travel.

Just buy a small lockbox and place it under your rear seat with the valuables in it. I highly doubt they would check under there for something, and if they do, they wouldn't be able to easy access whatever was inside discreetly.

If you want to take an extra precaution, bolt it down to a seat belt harness with a chain. LOL.

Don't know if any of this would work, but you could try it. Either under the backseat, or perhaps somewhere by the spare tire in the trunk.

OP, actually scratch all that. Disassemble your center column and delete the AC ducts for the rear seats, but leave the vents there for a visual reassurance to the thieves that there is in fact AC to the rear seats.

Place your belongings in a plastic container, vacuum sealed (we know what you're trying to hide), and duct tape it along the inner wall of the center console where your AC ducts once lied.

Finally, reroute the AC ducts to merge with your driver side front AC ducts and get awesome increased air flow during those hot summer days, or cold winter mornings.

Or, just don't keep anything extra valuable in your car when you have to fly.
