1970 compartment locks

Okay Guys and Gals,

I have searched the forum over and I cannot find any information on these compartment locks - proper name, part #, or source. Any ideas? I need three. I have no keys and they are not in very good shape and if the $$ are not prohibitive I would just as soon buy new. Replacement cylinders would work however.

I sell several different styles of cabinet latches but these aren't like anything that I have.

New Locks

here is a source for these locks new, but they are expensive.
Telescoping Lock SKU3028 - $54.95 : ODMRV , Out-of-Doors Mart

it is an Airstream dealer called "out of doors mart". when I bought my 1970 Overlander it was missing the compartmernt keys, so I removed the one door that covered the power supply and took the door to a locksmith. it cost me about $6.oo for him to hand cut me a key and then to make a copy. i was amazed just to watch him take a small file and make the first key. i asked him how long he had been making keys and he said about 50 years. please check the link and let me know what you think.

I also found this source:

T-Handle Lock OU-4260 Less Cylinder

They are a little cheaper (different kind of key but same dimensions). Also they have replacements cylinders for $16.77

Cylinder, F/4260 T-Handle w/2 keys

if I can figure out how to remove the old ones without an existing key.

I took one of my lock cylinder into the local Airstream dealer. He took it into the back and came back with a key. There must not be that many combinations of keys. He also said Airstream has are custom keys that a locksmith couldn't duplicate. So I bought two.
