locked out of AS Help
I'm camping in my '68 GT AS and closed the door. The knob turns on its' axis and does not engage the bolt. Short of cutting the knob off, how can I open the door? Kevin

Take a look at the hinges. Can you drive the pin out.

Call Andy at Inland. I don't have the it....he seems to know how to get into all of them.

Try pushing in on the nob, hard, as you turn it. I had a similar problem in my 66 and that got the door open. Then fix/change the lock.

I have had some luck entering through one of the cargo hatches, depending on size and location. In my case I was able to push the bed out from the underside and get in. Of course I was smaller then also

Be careful with that L-100 lock, discontinued and getting harder and harder to find. If you have some access doors and personally can't get in, find a good elementary kid that can use a screw driver, get him/her inside and have them remove the screws to take the inside handle off.

I am a new owner of a 71 Overlander and got no keys for baggabe compartments. Can the cylinders be changed?
