Key Hooks by Entry Door

Eddie Bauer owners: Do you find these hooks on the end of the galley cabinet to be useful for keys and what not? I have been considering adding these to our 23D.

Could anyone comment on the size? Attached is a similar if not the same hook from McMasterCarr. Thanks.

Self Locking Door?

The prior owner of my unit placed key hooks near the door. It seemed like a great idea until we got locked out on our first trip with all our keys hanging in sight but no way to get to them

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f453...ain-84336.html

Luckily, we had Good Sam Roadside at the time and a locksmith arrived to open the door. We now carry an extra trailer door key hidden in an accessible spot outside (my wallet). I also installed the cure to the self locking syndrome so many others encountered before us. It has never happened since

Locked myself out as well. Only takes one event. Now I store a key to the trunk in the bumper compartment, and in the trunk I keep a set of keys to the latch and deadbolt.

The OP did not ask if anyone has been locked out. Are they useful? I say yes. We always keep our keys there, both for the Airstream and our truck. Mine is an older version but I really like having my keys in one central location and by the door makes sense.

Locking yourself out is another question,

Having trouble seeing your schematic, but part #11855A21 from McMaster-Carr has the same dimensions as the hooks in the Eddie Bauer W 1 1/4" x H 7/8" x D 1/2".

Sorry aftermath, I wasn't aware of narrowly defined conversation limits. I thought I agreed with central placement by mentioning I was similarly equipped and never mentioned removing the hooks or ceasing their use. I added a chance to smile at my newbie predicament while viewing those very useful hooks and adding a "be prepared" boy scout's cure.

We have a Classic which came with similar hooks. I actually added more, exactly the same purchased at Home Depot above the originals and hang our dogs leaches on them. We put keys on the lower, original, ones along with one tactical flashlight.

Yes, we like them, very much.

Very useful, our FC also came with them. I don't know what it has to do with getting locked out. We keep a spare key hidden outside the trailer for that possibility.

Very useful! I hang my truck keys closest to the door, the trailer keys in the middle, and miscellaneous lock keys on the third. I always know where my main set of keys are, and always grab them walking in or out of the door. I also have 3 other sets scattered around. Now, if I could just find my wallet...

I saw that on a newer trailer but did not want to drill holes so I used Command strip hooks. It is a very convenient place to keep the truck keys and the trailer keys when we have landed at our site.
