Outside Compartment Door Latch Replacement

I am sure there is a thread about this somewhere, but I couldn't find it. We want to replace the locks on the outdoor storage compartments. The factory locks are not the best! And I want to be able to open and close the compartments without a key every time! We have found t-locks and l-locks online but wondered if anyone has recommendations for a type and the installation process.

In the search box enter cam locks. Scroll down and there's a topic with all the info.

Combi-cam locks worked great for me.

I just installed these and took my first trip with them...and really pleased. Found the tab from the original lock to be a perfect fit.

Also installed this on the entrance door...and REALLY pleased with it as well:

Ironic! We just went the other way. From the CH751 locks that everyone can open to a less common tubular key setup from Camping World. )

Funny! We just got tired of having to use the key every time we needed to get into the compartments. We want latches that can be unlocked yet latched, or latched and locked as needed. And even with putting graphite on the key, the locks were still temperamental.

I left the twist latches in as a safty for traveling and to help keep doors from warping......you can lock or leave unlocked, the slam latch that is...
