You mean this one?

http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/..._p/vts-929.htm

I wonder if it is still that crappy aluminum-zinc casting like the original. I think a billet handle is going to hold up better in the long run. $29 is not bad and I would have gone that route if I realized I could have just bought the handle.

There are two of those little steel tabs that work the lock mechanism. It looks like one is broken off. The one on the right of your photo. I am trying to remember what that piece looks like. I believe it is a steel stamping. I expect it broke because the broken handle put too much stress on that one tab.

Does anyone know where to get the roll pins for the exterior handle? One of ours sheared off and I need to replace them.

Ok, thanks. I thought there may be something special about them since it seemed to have a bushing with it. I'll measure the one I have and head to the hardware store.

The main roll pin is 1/4" in diameter and you can get them from McMaster.com.

I got lucky, I took the lock apart last night to see what size the pins were (before I saw your post Perry, thanks!). The lower pin had just been pushed down into the lock assembly. I was able to put everything back together and it works fine.

Two repairs in fifteen minutes, door lock and water heater. I had to stop for the evening so my luck didn't run out.

I'll pick up a couple roll pins to go as spares in my AS tool kit.

It should be just one long pin.

Maybe I don't have a Keeler, it looks like the pictures but maybe they changed to something else for 1993. Mine had two 1/4" pins that were about 3/8" long, one was pressed in from the top and one was pressed in from the bottom.
