How to determine which lock I have?

My head is swimming looking at all of the photos of Bargman locks. I haven't seen mine yet. I saw a diagram that said "Airstream Door Lock 70-77" which looks sort of like it, but does not say Bargman or any other brand. I have a 73 Overlander 27ft rear bath, serial #127D4 J1501. I am missing the tiny screw (on that diagram part 83212?) that holds the inside handle in place (screwing down from above) and the slider that locks the door from the inside for example at night. Any way to look this up to be sure?

It is probably a common screw. You have a pic of a similar screw?

You most likely have the expensive to replace KT lock. Parts are still available

Just an FYI - if the VIN you have showing above is correct - you have a 74 Overlander - not a 73. The first digit is actually an I not a 1...

Has anybody ever done a photo series of the common lock types? It might be very helpful to identify what we all have. Just a thought Everytime I get one my wife says "let it go"

I believe the set screw in the door handle is 1/4 x 20. The screw for locking the door is a 6 x 32. Take the handle to any well stocked hardware store, look for set screws. For the lock handle. I used a 6 x 32 x 1 1/2" machine screw, then slipped a small piece of rubber tubing (vacuum line hose) over the screw. Leaving about 1/4" of threads exposed. Installed the screw until it was held tight by the compressed tubing.
This lock mechanism has the tendency to lock itself, especially if you slam the door. I close the door by holding the handle out, then release it to engage the bolt. The locking mechanism has roll pins and they are very brittle. They will shear off if the mechanism is subjected to the shock of slamming the door.
I would highly recommend installing a dead bolt. Then tighten the interior door lock handle (screw) enough to prevent the bolt from sliding down on it's own.
I installed a new lock cylinder and it was still a challenge to get the door locked and unlocked from the outside. Now that I have a dead bolt there is no need to use the lock cylinder.

The exploded drawing that looks very much like my lock is at http://cdn.airforums.com/forums/atta...5&d=1339006095 The lost item is 83212. It seems like a tiny set screw. Thanks for your ideas.

Just take the handle to a local bolt supply store and they will fix you up.

Rumrunner... I totally agree. Would love to have some sort of reference. Still trying to figure out which lock I have on my 64 Overlander!
