i believe there is a defect in the reproduction Bargman L100. After spending many hours on this, and reading other threads (https://www.airforums.com/forums/f45...ir-100171.html
) , . Vintage trailer supply offered no help, aside from "take it to the locksmith if turning the screw doesn't work". In the following photos ill show you why i think
it's a defect.
This lockset was installed new, out of the box and failed on our first trip. it spent the last 2 years in a box after having to buy a second L 100 from VTS in 2010. that one has held up.
this is what the inside of the exterior handle should look like all the time :
But because of a lose handle, that center square with a screw in it doesn't sit all the way into the cam's square hole ... see how it looks below, when i am not holding the handle 'pushed in'... so the cam falls off after i left go of the handle because the handle slips out just enough so that the cam is only 1/2 way on the square piece of the handle.
