I just finished installing the locks. This is easily going to be one of my favorite mods.

I installed my first one tonight after work. I did some experimenting. 1st, it isn't as deep as the stock one. I used the stock offset cam and flipped it and it works nice and tight. I will take a few pics when I can.

Ok, so, if it hasn't been said yet, these locks do not work on the outside shower. The hole is recessed and the wings hit the sides where it is recessed.

Thanks, Handbuilder, for finding these. The locks are a bit more expensive now than when someone found them for less than 8 bucks, but they still seam a good solution. For those who are still looking, here's a direct link to this product at Wholesale4 Inc.

We just camped our first outing with the new locks, and I have to thank you once again, Handbuilder, for showing us the way. These locks made me a modding rock star with my wife.

We always park the picnic table towards the right rear of the camper, right by the rear hatch. My wife stores our outdoor dining/cooking supplies in that hatch for easy access, and these locks made that access a whole lot easier. She said at least a half dozen times over the weekend, "These things are just too flippin' cool."

Keyed thumb locks

The size given in the listings is the length of the threaded portion of the lock body--the barrel--from right behind the head with the key slot to the end of the threads but not including the little cam at the end that holds the door closed. The diameter of the barrel is the same for all barrel lengths. Unless your Shamrock's door is a lot thicker than usual, it probably uses a lock of the same length barrel as for our A-frame campers, which I believe is 7/8". That's the size of the lock in the link from mherte above.

If I'm wrong someone will chime in with the right length.
