    Been there...what I do is keep things in a big zip lock that will float. I did the same thing you did years back riding the surf and rolled my ski. Glove box opened up and emptied out all the stuff. I popped up to the surface and there was my wallet, etc floating on the surface. Had to grab it before the next 5 footer came rolling by.

    yep, the 'glove boxes' on the 'Doos is relatively insecure. I lost keys, GoPro, etc., when I flipped my GTR in FL.

    Soooo, what I'm saying is that its not just the SPARKs...

    Oh, too bad.

    Btw, in the bottom of the glove box there are two bolts, I also got a water proof plastic bag for phones etc. and it came with a tether cord and I tried to remove one of the bolts to secure the cord with but it didn’t come lose. Anyone know how to unscrew them?

    $5...problem solved. You can find thesein stock at pretty much any Walmart. Highly doubtful it will fit in the Spark glovebox though. I use a dry bag slung across my back to carry my waterproof box, water, tow/docking ropes on my Spark.

    Not sure about your setup, but on my GTI, it appears there are 2 rivets and a drain plug.

    We use Plano and Pelican floating dry cases in all our skis glove boxes for wallets, phones, reg cards and keys. They come in an assortment of sizes. Most large sporting goods stores or Marines carry them. They are worth the $20-$30 investment.
