I want to know how people lock their airstreams from in the inside when you are sleeping. Has anybody come up with a make shift lock for when you are inside so nobody can break in at night. I am going to post a picture of the type of lock we have on the outside. That will stay on until I am ready to fix the door correctly.
There is a huge SAFETY FACTOR
with your exterior lock.
Anybody, at any time, for any reason, can put a pin or a small stick the that lock.
Should you happen to be on the inside, you will not be able to open the entrance door. But, you could open the window, push out the screen, and remove the pin or stick.
if they put some type of lock in that hasp hole, you will probably find that you have a bigger problem than you wish to have.
Fix the entrance door lock, and, get rid of that hasp.
