hello everyone.
after several outside locks froze solid or got jammed up with road grime, I got to thinking.
devised a way to protect the outside locks from the weather.
started with a white outside outlet cover with twin flaps.
cut the cover in half to have 2 separate flaps.
trimmed off excess base.
used double sided foam tape to install over lock.
finished up with a bead of white caulking around the cover.
also made a cover for camper door latch using an outside outlet hinged cover.
if anyone is interested I can try to post some photos, not sure how yet.
