With good locks the key should not come out of the cylinder when it is between the lock or unlock position, it needs to be either or. As far as dead bolt locks that is the best secured lock you have on your camper, But if it is not fully engaged it can be worked open. Make sure that when you lock your dead bolt it is engaged completely. This how you can tell, as you turn the key to the lock position just before the key stops you will fell or hear a change in the movement before the key stops, It could be a click sound or you can fell a change just as it stops. If the key stops before it should, then the hole in the door frame for the dead bolt needs to be deeper. This applies to all dead bolt applications......The difference between good locks and cheep locks is the material that they are made of and how tight the tolerances are with added security devices in the lock that only specific keys can open. Do not use your door handle lock as a main locking devise to keep you camper secure always use the dead bolt.
