Just do not get a false sense of security one "pop" with a small pry bar not much if any noise and the door is open. I would not keep any thing of large value in a camper storage compartment.

Yes, it has been mentioned in this thread and anyone looking at it can see how easy it would be with a small pry bar. That's why I think spending $100 for a very secure lock isn't worth it, but $30 to rid the CH751 is.

I don't understand the difference. If they are likely going to bypass the lock anyway, what does it matter if it's a 751, a $30 lock or a $300 lock?

I've seen videos of guys in the middle of broad daylight in downtown Chicago that pull out a set of bolt cutters, snip the security chain on a bicycle that's locked up at a pole and ride away in less than 10 seconds. I can't imagine popping open a compartment door with a pry bar would take any longer.

They are probably less likely to try it in the middle of a CG, but at night parked in a driveway, or in a storage lot they certainly could.

On the similar subject, many dealers and campground owners have master keys to open the main entry doors on a lot of trailers as well.

before you spend your $$$ on the round tubular locks be aware they are easy to pick with a Bic pen
