Don't think one lock on a two latch door will keep anyone out that needs to get in considering the flimsy doors. I think I'll keep them like they are.

True but there is a legal reason that the doors do not come with locks and are marked propane.................

No doors have propane marked on them.

I've never owned a trailer but have owned a few motorhomes and everyone of them (different manufacturers) had a PROPANE decal affixed to the outside of the applicable door. Of course it was easy to tell, it was the only one without a key lock. Just saying. Maybe no outside PROPANE decals on a door is a trailer thing.

Neither door to the propane tanks have propane markers on them.

Maybe I'll alter a spring loaded handle like that on a gooseneck hitch. It's not a lock. Only I will know about it. A would be thief will turn the thumb knob on the latch and it won't open.

Ever seen an rv fire? Least of the concern is a door lock on a propane cylinder door.. LOL

By the time they get there the door will be gone! If it is a leak issue, I got a universal key in my trunk.. A Halligan Bar.

That said, I would not lock the door but that is me.
