AN-193BHS compartment locks

Hi all,

I would like to change the stock storage compartment locks on my 2019 Apex Nano 193BHS. Unfortunately, the trailer is stored a few hours away, so it's difficult for me to simply remove and measure a lock.

Does anyone know what size of locks come with this trailer? I think the locks typically come in 5/8", 7/8", 1-1/8" or 1-1/2" lengths. The cams come in multiple lengths (as measured from the center of the hole to the furthest outside radius) and offsets are likely 1/8", 3/16", 1/4" or 3/8".

Also, one of the standard cams does not reach the frame resulting in no locking for one side of the door. I think that either the door is not square or the frame is not square. Either way, a longer cam is probably required. Has anyone else encountered this issue?

Thanks, Terry.

Hi all,
I was able to measure the storage locks on the Apex Nano 193BHS. The tubular locks are 7/8" long. The cam size is 1-1/4" with a 1/16" offset.
Please note that on my particular trailer, one of the cams was too short to latch the door. This could be because the storage door or frame was not square, or maybe the key hole was not punched in the right place (e.g., too far from the edge). I suspect it was the frame that was installed without ensuring it was square. Either way, there seems to be very little overlap between the latch (cam) and the frame.
Since I plan on replacing the CH751 locks anyway, I've opted for slightly longer cams (1-1/2"). I'm hoping this will add some security and solve the latching problem.

I was able to get my cam locks keyed to my door lock. These guys are great to work with.
