Default Bed cover help please.

I searched, and couldn't find nothing to help so here is my situation. My truck came with a bed cover that has a lock, but no key. Anyone know how I could replace the lock or get a key for the lock some how? This is a link to a site that has a very similar cover, I don't have any pics mine at the moment, so i guess this will have to do. Thanks in advance. (Why do I need a lock? College is coming fast, and well it is more than likely going to turn into a storage space for me and any buddies that might need it, so the working lock is essential.)

That looks like a Mopar cover which takes a refrigerator style key. Not sure drilling out the lock will be possible as the locking part rotates then pulls up slightly hooking on to a fastener screwed into the tailgate. After looking at mine it looks like you can take a wrench and talks off the nut holding the lock in, and remove and replace that way, not sure though.
