Battery Compartment Locks

Both of the locks for the battery compartments are busted ( the tab on the lock mechanism is broken off. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement for these locks, actually it does not even really have to be a lock, it can just be a mechanism that holds it closed, not sure if this is a standard size thing.

Just to be clear, the Airstream i parked 4 hours away from me, and I did not measure the size. I read some other forums that said to use a generic tumbler lock. like the one here

https://www.amazon.com/FJM-Security-...r+tumbler+lock

But I'm not sure which size to purchase, or if the tab on this will be too long

Hi

That one fits on a normal battery box on a modern trailer. There are others with longer cylinders that may be better for other setups. Pretty much any lock that looks like that is a 3/4" mount hole device. The only difference is how far it is from the front surface to the "tab" on the back. The entire range from "real short" to "way long" seems to be covered by three locks.

Go to Airstream.com for a parts catalog for your trailer. My locks are number 381430. Should fit yours.

There is a hardware store on Pike St in Jackson Center, the owner of which is a retired AS employee. He bought some of the old surplus frokm the factory. In 2011 I bought battery box keys from him. He had those locks with keys. Worth the effort to track him down.

The hardware store closed last year. I have heard that it now has new owners.

Were you able to find locks that fit? I need to replace 2 or three on exterior compartments on my 75argosy and am looking for a place to start. Thanks!

If what you need are JUST the locks themselves, you might try contacting https://ch751.com/ - When I had my LY MH, Mark Silver of ILH supplied me with lock replacements. Good locks at a reasonable price.
