The plate that attaches to the door jamb is too wide and required cutting to allow the lock to fit flush against the body. I took it to a machine shop and had them shave it down and drill three holes.

Ok all, thanks for sending the link to Freshair's post on the wooden door stop.
Made one this morning to see if it would work. Will have to try it out later.
Thanks again,
Denny

Suicide door lock

Hello All. I just ordered the door lock the Steamy1 installed, from a place in FL. As Steamy1 said the part number is 04688A01 and the phone number in FL is 407-672-0091. They had a few in stock and they were $71.+
I ordered it today and it should be here in CT by weeks end. As a side note they are not a UK lock but Italian.
This sure solves a problen as about 15 years ago on a trip home from NH the door came open and did a number on bending it. I worked on that miserable door for weeks before it fit properly.
The info I am repeating came from Steamy1 so he is the one to thank.
Happy camping nm1oqrz

STEAMY1,

Thanks for the input and the info! I am confused about how this holds the door closed, though.
The Fiamma lock attaches to the door jamb, then the locking block attached and locks to it. It looks like the locking pad (the sculpted white block with the lock in it) fits over the panel that is screwed into the door jamb. How does it hold the door closed?

What gets attached to the door?

Just wondering.

Thanks!

Suicide door lock

Hello MIKO92. The door lock doesn't attach to the door at all. It attaches to the side of the door frame that is attached to the trailer. The lock then is able to pivot so it is straight up verticule and out of the way so the door can be opened or pivoted horizontal across the door so the door can't open.
Mine works great. Too bad they wern't a silver color.
