I had one on my popup for at least 5 years and it was still working great when I sold it.

I'm hopeful that these things are built to a higher standard, and that they'll hold up to hundreds (+) of locks/unlocks. I tend to lock my basement doors after every use...
Good question I was wondering the same. How they hold up to weather also. I plan to order the cover but concerned about them freezing in the winter.

At under $9 each, they're surprisingly inexpensive and I bet they will hold up better than the crappy 571 locks that came with the camper. The dust caps will hopefully keep them working longer. Im looking forward to not having to struggle to open my storage doors this summer!

I have had the combicam locks for about a year without any issues. I don't have the dust caps, might have to get some of those.

I had them on my previous camper to replace the standard locks. Had no issues with them and did not have dust covers. One thing I did have to do was put an o-ring between the lock and the door because it sat so close it was difficult to turn. After adding the o-ring it worked perfect.

Are you talking about a rubber o ring?

I used a washer. But an O-ring sounds like a better idea.

A rubber o-ring was exactly what I used. Keeps the water out and creates just enough space in between for free movement of the combi-cam.

Would these locks work on slam latches?

Nope. They are a different type of lock.
