Rekeying Locks

So I head stories how keys are keys in the trailer lock business. If you loose
your keys while camping just go to your neighbor with the same make to get in your trailer.

Last fall as I was locking up my storage bin I thought the key looks familiar. So when I looked again noticed it was the same key and
number that I use on large computer racks at work.

So it has me concern with the very few dishonest campers with keys our there. So anyone had locks changed for the doors or storage?

Any suggestions?

Assuming you are talking about the standard bin locks?

See here: CH 751 Locks

CH751 are very very common. But I am reference the trailers doors as well as the CH751. While understand anyone who wants it the storage bins with
almost any lock.

I have one bad lock on my camper and I think I'll be contacting these people soon: Products. On my old camper one of my locks was part of the recall and it's a very easy procedure to change it out.

Just FYI Fastec has a recall on some of their door locks. You may want to contact them with the Key numbers. They will know if you have the bad ones and will send you replacements along with directions to replace them.

It's very easy, I purchased barrel locks online from Wilco, did the swap and have totally different key number than standard 751 key. I also changed the outside shower access now I have one key for all instead of 3. Cost, 45 and change.

I also have barrel locks and they are all keyed to the same code and I am confident that they are superior to the originals.

Another advantage is that they cannot be forced by shoving a screwdriver in them and forcing them to turn.
