Is the lock itself broken, or is it a lost key deal? If it's a lost key deal, most good locksmiths can make a key for it from scratch. My truck didn't come with a key for the tonneau, so I had a locksmith come out on the dealer's dime and make a key for me.

it works just kinda wiggles a little but i would like to get a lock that doesn't protrude so much for a cleaner look. oh and i cant get pics up because i actually dont have the truck at the moment.

I see. I'm not a major expert on Tonneau's, so I'm not sure. I'm sure you can make it work, it's just a matter of finding compatible parts. My ARE Tonneau has a pretty slim lock, you may wanna check into those.
