Question Before we buy

before we shell out for a new L-100 lock, is there

a.) a way a locksmith can replace the lock cyclinder with a key style/pins that are a little less easy to pick? The L-100 I saw at the local shop looked like a toy key it had so little going on.

b.) Is there a better lock to install than the L-100 that doesn't involve drilling holes in the cast frame? I saw first hand a cracked door frame and don't want one of my own.

Our L-100 currently doesn't have a key and when we had a key made it wouldn't lock and the locksmith was puzzled, so was the second place we took it to. The pO has a hasp on the door which we absolutely hate. We'll have a safety cable for driving but want a secure door, particularly since ours is stored most of the year away from our home in "secure" storage.

I'm hoping to reuse the striker assembly from our current l-100 lock and use the new lock and knob etc. as a minimum.
