Keyed thumb locks

Well, they finally arrived! It took almost a month for the company to special or them & they werent cheap (27- incl shipping for two) but for me, the wait was so worth NOT drilling another hole in the outside storage door!

I wanted the convenience of being able to close the outside storage doors without having to use a key everytime.

I got them from Wholesale 4 Inc (Wholesale 4 Inc)
they were $7.48 each, shipping was $11.35 (OUCH)
Call Bill (503) 238-8605, Portland Oregon
I am glad I called to verify my order online because they had noted it was the non keyed item that clicked for the order. I recommend phoning them personally to ensure it is exactly what you want.

I have not been able to find those exact lock online. Grainger and some others have similar locks, but the descriptions are unclear. Particularly on the depth. For right now, I installed a non keyed latch on my outside shower. Doing that eliminates the need to carry the stupid separate key for that one lock and lets others access the shower without me having to set it up first. I am not concerned about someone stealing my shower hose, however the thought that it might vibrate open on the road makes me want to get a lock.

Hi Tom, I feel your pain with regard to finding these locks. Seems everywhere I went (retail) and called (from online companies) told me not available.

If you call Bill at the number above, he can get them for you & you can verify the exact depths and such (I asked him to make sure I had matching keys for both locks). He was great to work with! I forwarned him that other A-Framers might call because I posted to the FR forum. He said he has them & hopes others wont have to wait like I did.

I definitely love their convenience and you're right - no chance of them vibrating open with them locked in place. I was so focused on the baggage doors, I never thought about the shower door...that'll prob be down the road - I dont use the trailer shower so much that it annoys me like the baggage locks did. Haha

Lool forward to hearing about your new purchase!

Ordered 4 keyed thumb locks (keyed alike) today from Bill. He said I would have my locks in three business days. My fingers are crossed.

I told Bill I received my information, in regard to the locks, from this site. Told him I would post a site upgrade to help promote business for him. He remembered you Handbuilder.
