Keeler door lock

I am trying to repair a Keeler door lock used on 80's trailers. The common defect is a broken exterior pull. Does anyone have the body from this lock. I need the bolt plate assembly. It is a flat plate that is wrapped around the bolt and rivited. I am trying to avoid the door patch fix that is the only other solution.

Keeler Brass has been out of business for many years.

Wish you luck in finding what you need.

I bet your little tabs broke off that actuate the plunger? A machine shop might be able to bend a new piece and rivet it on there. If you just needed a handle I could fix you up.

Keeler lock

After reviewing the options and costs I decided to make my own part. Here is the finished part with the broken one. Made with one sheet of 16 gage steel, drill press, grinder, and lots of filing.

Good work. I would not have expected one to break there. Usually the tabs break off because the handle breaks and the tabs get stressed.
