I installed that door lock fix yesterday and it's easy to do and seems to work well. On my 2007 Safari I didn't have to take the pcok apart, just loosen the screws and you can work the washers in there- I'd say use the plasitc and the felt washers on a 2007.

Thanks Andy.

I am mailing the envelop Monday and greatly appreciate what you are doing. I wondered what happened to the lock. We thought one of us had accidently flipped the lock closed. I was lucky the back bedroom window was open and I push the screen in and climb through and opened the trailer. We are going to put an extra key in a lock box on the tongue of the trailer from now on.

Andy - I hope the offer still stands - I'm sending the SASE today. This situation cost me a window screen in the dinette area over the weekend. We cut it out and climbed through - luckily the window was open, or we'd have had to call a locksmith.

The offer still stands and will stand indefinitely.

Unfortunately, most of the owners that have requested that kit, were already locked out.

We had hoped that many owners would request that "NO CHARGE" kit, "BEFORE" they got locked out, but time will tell.

Post the results after you install the kit, so others will know how simple it is to do.

Andy,

What size envelope- #10, for folded letter or the larger 8 1/2x 11.

We're head to northern MN. soon and I'd hate to get locked out after an early morning skiny dip in one of their 10,000 lakes.

Probably way more info than you need....

Thanks again for this.

Jonathan

Unfortunately, that's how I learn MOST of the lessons in life - by dealing with the consequences!!! I'll bet I'm not the ONLY one on this forum in that boat!

I'll post results and pictures too if I remember my digital camera!

Thanks again!

Thank you, Andy. We have been locked out on our ’99, but had a window
open.
We just had a spring break on our ’78 Argosy and had to remove the
door. The lever on the vertical shaft is broken (part #4). Are there any parts available for it?
Bob

We have all the parts for the KT locks, the infamous lock used by Airstream from 1070 thru and including the 1977 model Airstream and Argosy trailers.

We get a few SASE from owners everyday.

Our offer still stands.

Send us a SASE and we will send you a lock out kit, no charge.

Andy

Any -

We got the requested fix in the mail and installed it - so far it seems to be doing the trick - THANKS!

I should also add that we called the lock company and got two additional sets of keys and will keep them outside of out trailer just in case!

Thanks again - it took all of 10 minutes to install and only involved removing and re-tightening two screws.
