Not easily, it is casted into the handle. I've done it before but I used a lathe, drill press, and dremel tool in that order.

The original poster LockDoc. If you send him one of your keys he can match it so the same key works the doors and handle.

LockDoc just keyed a handle for me last week. Big thanks! I've got the handle out to be re-chromed right now.

I kinda figured he could do it. Thanks. I didn't know a door key was used. Guess I never tried one. Thought it was one of those mailbox sort of keys.

That may be the case but the door key will work.

Re: How To Remove The Lock Cylinder From A Blazer Hatch Handle

Actually last year I bought an NOS hatch lock assembly off ebay and it had a square key like the ignition. I believe so anyhow I will have to dig it out and take a look.

Re: How To Remove The Lock Cylinder From A Blazer Hatch Handle

When it comes to making the square stock that fits over your handle . I was able to find a company that sells this stock . If comes in two or three inch lengths and only 1/2 inch diameter . I was able to machine down a piece of pipe with inside diameter 1/2 inch and outside diameter I had to machine down to look like the original part with a 'c' clip grove for reassembly . Once it was machined down I merely welded the square hole shaft to the new piece of pipe already machined down . The picture below is what the part I machined looks like that fits over the square holed shaft looks like . Again can also be done on drill press if patient . If having trouble email he at srpenner@hotmail.com

The square stock and the pipe pictured below was able to build a couple parts and have a spare for sale . The square stock was not cheap (about $75) but if your wanting your build to closely resemble the original part then this is your best coarse of action .
