Arrow need source for lock...'75 tradewind

my 75 tradewind has two compartments on the entry side that is the battery compartment and the other is the rear to the fridge compartment....both of these compartments have a type of lock that you insert key..turn key and a little handle thing comes out about 1/4 inch you turn this handle and the compartment opens....

i dont have keys...would rather replace with new then to re-key...

any ideas where i can buy these..can they be a local depot....camping world...

You can try

I was able to get a replacement when the local locksmith messed mine up.

Hi Lee,

I think you are looking for these locks right?? We replaced ours on our 1971 Ambassador with them and they look the same and have the same no. like mentioned in the Servioce Manuals... Only the Key looks different!
