Glovebox

A *glove compartment* or *glovebox* or *glovie* is a compartment built into the dashboard <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dashboard , located
over the front-seat passenger's footwell in an automobile <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automobile , often used for miscellaneous storage. The name derives from the original purpose of the compartment, to store gloves <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glove . They were sometimes in a box on the floorboard near the driver, hence the alternate moniker of a "glovebox". In most vehicles, the glove compartment closes with a latch, with the option of being locked with a key (often desirable when using valet <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valet_parking service, or when parking while the convertible <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convertible_%28car%29 top is down, or when the compartment contains a mechanism to open the trunk <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trunk_%28automobile%29 ).
