Andy DISREGARD
Our dead bolt mechinisim it different .I think .It slides up/down vertically not horzontially so it should not be subject to the DOOR SLAMING SCYNDROME. The inside lock handle was missing, I went thru the hole and turned the pin with a sharp AWL and found where it screwed in. I found a 8-32 machine cap screw in my Tool makers box and put blue lock tight on it and screwed it in. Its just long enough We can get hold of it,but not long enough to get in the way.
Sorry ANDY I'll try not to cry WOLF again before I investigate thourughly.
Please keep that wealth of knowledge comming.We all apreciated it
Roger

not guilty!

I am sooooo happy to find this thread! My daughter has gotten in so much trouble for locking us out of the trailer, at least twice. She will be thrilled and vindicated that she was not to blame (as she claimed) for locking us out after all. I will be in touch Andy, ASAP and thank you!!

update

Keep those SASE coming, folks.

We have plenty of the "fix" kits available, all at "no charge."

So far, the reports suggest a 100 percent happy fix, and not a single person was unhappy.

Hey, sometimes the simple things in life, are the answer.

Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, the more locks fixed, the better.

Andy

Andy,
Is this fix for trailers as far back as '86? I'm currently locked out of mine after slamming the door (it's in the yard) and am looking for a skinny kid to get in through the side storage locker! I'll be sending an envelope too if it's a fix for a trailer this old!
Thanks, Andy!

Sorry, but that fix is not for your entrance door lock.

Getting into the trailer does not require a skinney kid.

There is a much easier way.

However, a thief would have a field day if I posted it, or even PM'd it.

Call and ask for Greg. He will tell you how, on the condition that you do not post the information.

You would normally call me, but I am out of the country, trying to relax.

Andy

Your entrance door lock was made by Keeler Brass or GM.

Parts that you probably need, are no longer available.

You can hunt for used parts, if you wish, or replace the lock with a "kit" that's available.

It is possible that the striker bolt could be broken in the right "wrong" place.

If that's the case, you may not be able to open the door, even from the inside.

If that happens, call Greg again.

Andy

Andy,

I am looking for the entrance door lock for my 1978 Excella 500. Do you also carry the parts for this lock? It is the 4" X 5 3/4" one and the key says Wartian Lock Company and PK 571 or possibly PK 577. The lock seems to work but the cylinder is worn.

Thanks for any help.
