door locks

Just put in new door locks I got from RV Locks and more .com this was the least expensive place I could find , also replaced the generic storage compartment locks. When I ordered them they offer to key all doors alike and the compartment locks also the same as the doors. No more wondering if someone was able to open the compartments. For those that didn't know your compartment keys will work on any trailer and could gain access, using a child in most cases, to your trailer. I work in law enforcement and the people who would steal from you wouldn't think twice about using their child to get in.

The all keyed alike is really neat. I'm the only person in my family who knows which key goes with what. Everyone else asks me.

I'm very interested in a new door lock rather then the one from the factory, so how much different is this one GlenZ vs the factory one? or is it the same thing?

Just wondering

Thanks

Just replaced my outside compartment locks with tubular cam locks from Industrial Lock & Hardware. Was impressed with the construction. The locking arm is attached with a nylon insert nut rather than a screw. Always had problems with the screws backing out on my previous TT. I also purchased their metal, spring loaded lock covers. The four locks are all keyed the same. They have a sheet on their website showing how to measure your locks properly (lock, locking arm, locking arm offset). Took the guess work out of things, and at my age I need all the help I can get

I just went to a lock smith & had all the keys for the compartments keyed the same, & if you have a few doors that had different locks, outside garbage door, I just bought a new lock for the one door. I had the door re keyed, so that one key was for both locks, it cost about $ 10.00 per door, cheaper than new locks.

Just purchased all new locks for our new RV. For the entrance I bought the TTL-43900 security upgrade lock, "no master key available for this lock" and slam latch locks for the storage area. All locks will be keys alike. Yep a thief will get in and get your stuff if they want in but this keeps the borderline honest people honest. A thief will pry open a door or break a window without a second thought.

My experience has been that most RV people are honest and wouldn't touch a thing much less try to open you storage area or trailer door. You just never know who lost there job from where and has keys and has passed them out to there friends. They could go through lots that store rv's or come into our yard and "try there keys".
