Hi,

All the best,

Bargman H20 will not lock

I have a 56 Bubble with a h20 bargman handle. The set works great aside from locking. Looks to be the original old key that fits in cylinder perfect but the key will not turn in either direction. Therefore, won’t lock. Curious if someone might know why the key won’t turn.
Thanks.

The H-20 is not that difficult of a mechanism. But, all facets of the lockset have to work correctly. In your case, it seems to be either the cylinder or the bushing where the lock cylinder square stem fits into. Some had a small panel on the inside of the door that could be removed to access the lockset. If that’s the case, you may want to remove the lockset and housing to access all the components. There could be several possibilities so it’s hard to say. Could even be a broken spring inside the housing that has jambed the works. There’s only one primary spring inside the housing that is available if broken. When time allows, maybe looks at the video on this thread. That may give you some ideas. Also, you can purchase a new lock cylinder from VTS that will work the exterior locking function, just not the interior. Good luck and let me know what you found.

Always return the bushing to the same 12:00 o’clock position to allow for inside and outside functions to operate as designed. I know this sounds a bit weird, but it’s really simple. From what I understand, the original key lock cylinder came from a 1948 Ford Mercury. That wouldn’t surprise me since a lot of various Ford parts were used way back then.
If you want to discuss, PM me and I will give you my contact info. Good luck, Bubba
I finally got to look at my lock set. I need a new main spring and lock. Other than that using your post as a guide everything works like it should. The one thing I noticed was your inside open and close handle is in a different position than mine. Mine is attached directly to the out side handle and yours is attached to something lower in the casing.

Thanks Terry. Now I won’t sleep until I get this figured out. Off hand, I don’t know why the difference. I’ll look into it. While yours is out of the door, can you send me a picture of the insides? I want to compare. Intriguing. Thanks

Terry the layout of your assembly is the same as one of mine for the main components. I believe your spring on the left is broken and your missing the top "cam". Maybe a PO modified to try and overcome missing/broken parts?

Out of curiosity is there an earlier version of the H20-2; H20-1 or H20
I googled, but got nothing definitive.

Forgot to add, the interior door handle is on the outside of the cam and shaft you're missing.

Interesting to see that your Bargman is mounted on the outside of the door, where as mine and Bubbas is inside the door.

Photo isn't of mine. My trailer has a newer model at the moment, I just haven't tackled rebuilding the door yet.
