Angry 2014 Tri Glide Trunk and Lock issue

Anyone here have issues with the trunk lock cylinder? I've replaced mine 3 times and it keeps breaking. The trunk constantly pops open, even after I shut it and tug on the handle to make sure it's closed. I've called Harley and they say they say the replacement lock is still only made in plastic.

So my question is has anyone replaced the cylinder with an aftermarket one? I know it won't be keyed the same but at this point, I'm tired of buying locks.

I haven't heard of this problem yet but IMO use any lock that'll fit.

What SCHMIDTY said.
Along with maybe going to a locksmith who may be able to re-key it to match.

Or.....quit over packing.
