How to lock the propane tank cover?

Just picked up the a/s for a quick trip to the beach. Someone had removed the cover from the propane tanks. Fortunately we found it a few rigs away.

Now we are trying to figure out how to lock the cover in place to confound the next moron. Any suggestions.

I'm not sure about this, but I think perhaps trailers having partly enclosed propane storage areas (bottom of compartment always left open for safety since propane is heavier than air) are intentionally designed without locks in order to permit very quick access in case of emergency. Just something you might want to consider.

Our last trailer - an " Award" was designed so that the bottles were completely hidden within the trailer profile, although the fibreglass access door had catches without locks - the only compartment on the trailer so fitted.

When I questioned the lack of keylocks, that was what I was told.
