Storage compartment locks

Hi, I would like to change out the generic baggage locks with the cylinder type key. When measuring, do I measure the door thickness or length of the lockset. I see them in 5/8 7/8 and 1-1/8.

Canít remember the manufacturer but they had a sheet to download with all the various measurements needed to replace your specific locks.

Thanks, Amazon doesn't go into that detail. Maybe check out an mfg. site.

You measure the length of the shaft starting behind the head of the lockset.
see attached picture. This one is 1-1/8" (a very common size).
These folks CH751.com are great to deal with. They have a downloadable chart on their site to help you you order what you need.

Yep that is the one I was think of with the chart for various measurements.

Ordered mine today from ch751.com, have been very frustrated with the standard locks on my 2018 Rockwood 2507s. The keys wonít work with each lock, and then found out that just about everyone with a camper has the same key! I know you canít keep a thief out , but Iíd rather not have him reach into his pocket and use his key. Hope the change out goes smoothly!

Only takes a few minutes to swap out each lock. When you install them set them up so that the key way on the center slug points the same way when locked. Makes it eaiser to walk around and visually check that they all are locked.
I swapped out 11 in about 45 minutes.

I would rather a thief used "his" key instead of poping the doors open and screwing them up. The price of fixing / replacing the doors is more than anything I keep in the storage compartments.

I would like to change mine out but as oaklevel said what's is in there would probably be out when camping and when stored if they are going to go into the backyard through locked gate they are going to go in anyways.
