"BILL" was spot on with his shipping estimate for me as was he great with others who ordered after me. I gave him a heads up to be ready. Haha So glad to hear it was his company - he'll make it happen. It seemed forever before I got mine, but I told him I'd wait as long as it took for the order to come, as a certain amount of quantity has to happen before his order is placed (or so I understood). It definitely is worth the wait!!
Handbuilder is correct! The new Thumb locks on my camper work great. One of the better modifications on my camper.

Well, I just called Bill in Oregon and ordered 4 of the keyed thumb locks, all keyed the same! They have them in stock, and will be shipped out Monday morning! Wooo Hoooo! SoI'm going to have to look for the online instructions. I am hopeful I can make this change myself!!!

Hi all!!! I"m happy to say that I received my cam locks!! Better yet, I got one installed so that the door closes without rattling, and I also can turn to open it. But here's the funny part. I have several parts left over, for which I'm pretty sure is why my lock won't lock. I have a sneaky feeling this has to do with these teeny tiny little balls, thread-less screws, and a spring. I have searched the internet for instructions about cam lock assembly, without much success. Would someone be able to help me with this? Overall, I'm thrilled that I got the first one in! hahaha Thanks for your help in advance!

Hi Macalina3369!

I am going off memory...I do remember I had a couple false starts but those parts do go down the hole in the center of the chamber.

The spring goes down the hole and the balls on top of the spring and the pin pushes (compresses the balls when it is all put together. Be patient and do this over a white towel on a flat surface in the event that the balls pop out as you slide/push the lock pieces together. This happened a couple times when I got distracted by my spouse teasing me about putting them together as I was determined to do by myself. LOL

You do need to put the spring/balls/pin in the hole or it won't lock (as you noted). You will have extra cam because it comes with angled or straight one. It took me a couple times of putting it together to figure it out. I was also very careful in removing the original lock so that I could use that as a guide in putting the new lock together. I also noticed that I was able to make the cam turn up or turn down to lock, all depending how those final rings were placed.

Sorry! I wish I could help you with assembly. I can't remember what I did yesterday. Can you post the Website located on the lock label. I think I remember where to find the lock assembly.
