Dock station lock

My 2016 320A Vengeance has a lock on the dock station. The water hook up, outside shower, and black tank flush cover. That is annoying digging for the key all the time. What will work there in place of the key lock? I want to be easy to open and not require a key. It needs something to hold it closed while going down the highway but I don't need it locked.

You can get any number of devices from Home Depot/Lowe's from a hasp to a barrel bolt or screen door latch.....

You could also replace the locking "baggage compartment" latch with the same style that doesn't have a lock. All you need to know is the "depth" of the latch (most likely 7/8") and then you can buy a replacement from any number of on-line vendors. Maybe even Home Depot.

I added turn latches to all my lock doors. Now I unlock them once and use the latch while set up. Only lock them for travel now

I saw some 5/8" turn latches on Amazon. I might give those a try.
