I need to lock this door.

Can anyone suggest some way of locking this sliding door. What would be the best way of attaching a lock to it. I'd like to provide for some privacy in the bedroom. Thanks in advance.

No screws, no defacing, no mods. Just cut a broom handle to fit in the space behind it when it is in the closed position. Lay the stick in position and the door can't be opened. Move the stick, and the door slides. Ta Da!

I actually thought of that but wanted to see if anyone had some other suggestion...I guess it's true what they say about keeping things simple. Thanks Ovair

I took an adjustable shower rod and adjust it out to fit.

You could install a kwikset pocket door lock. You will need part number 335. The door is already cut out for the lock. Can be checked out at the kwikset web site.

Sorry, but I have to hi-jack this thread for a moment. Why do you need to lock a bedroom door in a camper, or even at home? If it is children, teach them, not tell them, TEACH them never to open door without knocking, and waiting on permission to come in. Our children knew when they could barely walk to never open a door, and by age three to wait on permission to enter a room.

If it is adults staying with you, make them get their own trailer and camp site.

Mow to help you with your question, there locks for pocket doors, which this appears to be. Not sure if it is in the wall or not. If it is, a rod or broom handle won't work.

When my DH and I bought our unit in March, we specifically didn't get the air bed option for the couch because we don't really want anyone else staying with us. And we didn't get a bunk house model because again, we don't want anyone staying with us. If friends without a TT want to go camping with us, they can gladly put up a tent in our site. We did have a friend's father stay with us for a couple of nights, until the friend arrived at the campsite and then we shipped him off to their trailer.

We have a rule that when we have visiting campers, no hanky panky. There is no stabilizer on the market to eliminate a rocking rig. So, even with a locked door, the deed will still be detected.

Who cares why he wants the lock on the door! Instead of telling why he shouldn't need it, maybe some suggestions on how to do it.
