I just installed my locks yesterday, its a great improvement over the old locks. For the shower I took one of the nuts off the old lock and used it as a spacer, now it has plenty of room to turn. This is a costly mod but well worth the money for the convenience.

A simple and elegant solution. Particularly when compared to the grinding away at the latch I did.

We got some of these nifty thumb locks and what a joy to be able to access the cargo areas easily! Thanks for all the good info of those that have gone before me and worked out the kinks. I have to say they were not too easy to assemble and the bag of little parts were intimidating but it was worth it in the end!

Yes, assembling those small parts was awkward. I used a fingertip full of some general purpose grease in that little hole to keep them in place during assembly. Messy but effective.

I don't recommend trimming your fingernails just before assembly. I was overdue for clipping mine, and found that they sure came in handy for holding those little parts in place during final assembly.

Changed all my compartment locks in the early spring when i found out that all compartment keys for all trailers are the same. Also found out recently from another camper that the door handle locks work with any campers door key. When I changed mine I got new door locks and the compartment locks keyed all alike and they are double sided keys so they aren't the same as others. Less likely that anyone has the same key. Wish I had of ordered the thumb locks though with the double sided keys.

Just ordered four. The woman said they will ship out tomorrow keyed alike!

They said they've had to increase their orders for these since they are getting so many requests! Too bad we can't get a discount for free advertising!
