Entrance Door Lock Fix

If your entrance door lock looks like this, you can accidentally engage the lock, by just "slamming" the door.

We have come up with a fix to eliminate the problem.

We will supply the fix at "NO CHARGE," along with the installation instructions. It will take 5 minutes or less to install the fix. You will not need any other parts to complete the installation.

Send us a SASE (self addressed stamped envelope) and we will send the fix and instructions to you.

I did a semi-smart thing on my 73. I put in a sliding deadbolt on my screen door to keep it closed. Only trouble is sometimes it can lock when you don't want it to, i.e. when you are outside. As there is a latch that locks the screendoor to the entrance door, voila, you are locked out. Necessity is the mother and I fashioned a coat hanger wire toosel to jimmy the slide back open. I finally got half smart and now use a minature bungee to keep the slide in an open position when not needed. Not purdy but it works.

I had this problem too. I just parked the trailer on a 30 degree slope and rattled the door until the slide moved back. I then removed the slide permanently. Gravity still works.

I have an old computer.

It's six months old.

It won't let me e-mail parts.

Andy, that is really, really nice of you to do this. I'm out of warranty too, so any fix to the lock would be on my dime anyway, if I could get the factory to even respond with something other than don't close/slam the door!

ANdy,
Oh? I got the impression they were just instructions.

This shows you that besides being a deep well of Airstream knowledge we all dip into, Andy is also a fine fellow...
