Storage compartment lock

Anyone change the "751" locks? What did you buy and where?
Thanks
Mike

Try this site. Or take your lock to HD or Lowe's. They are a form of a mail box lock.

Anyone change the locks to the tubular kind? like on a soda machine? Someone recommend them to me once, but I haven't found a source.
Thanks,
Spap

If they want in, they are going to get in. They will just do more damage with a better lock on the door.

This post is not about a better lock it is about the "751" key that is used on about 90% of rv storage compartments. if you have a 751 key you can open a lot of things on a rv.

So is it basically commonly accepted that anyone with a key can get in your storage? I mean I dont live in a high crime area but my TT stays in storage, so I don't exactly want anyone helping themselves to my stuff. I can start a new thread if needed but i'm just curious.
Thanks,
Spap

I think he wants to change the lock to something other than the one that uses the 751 key.

"Anyone change the "751" locks? What did you buy and where?
Thanks Mike"

My storage doors use a Trimark lock with a key like this one.

Yes, I made the change. Don't recall if they are 5/8" or 3/4" cam locks. I bought them at the local locksmith ... $4 each and they were keyed alike.

I made the change. Got mine a local locksmith, prepackaged. $6ea. I changed all and the outdoor shower (so I only needed 1 key for all)

I have also see them in 4 packs on amazon. Just google replace 751 locks and measure the length of the cylinder.

I replace all my 751 locks for barrel locks. All five compartments all all keyed alike. I got them from Industrial Lock and Hardware.
This is there web site
http://iss4locks.com
I spoke to a rep which help me order the correct size. It's been a couple of years, but I think it only took a week to get them, and took less than an hour to install them.
