Locks on propane compartments

My last storage place for my 5th wheel started having issues with theft. I had put locks on my propane tanks and a week later on a check up visit my compartment doors where propane tanks are stored were standing open. The locks prevented them from being taken. I recently switched to a storage place about 5 miles from my house. It is gated and the ground is paved. However, their main rentals for storage are buildings with garages. Someone tried to get my tanks their as well. Has anyone switched out locks on their storage compartment doors that take a key (751) ? There are two latches on the door now. I was thinking about switching one out to a lock and key. Any thoughts on the subject?

Take the tanks out and store them at home, some states may have a law against locks on the Propane storage doors in the event of a fire.

May be illegal, but I put what I call 'pop machine' type locks on my propane compartment doors. The keys are tube type.

It is against the "Codes/Laws" to have Locks on Propane! Youroo!! Contact your Local Fire Inspector!
