Kani,

If you can't take care of it before Branson perhaps we can work on it with you on Friday. We'll get it taken care of.

We never use this lock, and only use the deadbolt on our.

The lock is easy to remove. Remove the locking pin (you did that) and the inside handle. Then remove the screws on the inside of the door and one in the jam and it should pop out.

lock removal

The KT lock, used from 1970 to 1977, is a little tricky to remove.

After the obvious, you must drill out a few of the rivets next to the lock, on the inside metal.

That will allow you to flex the metal so that the inside locking handle shaft, will now not stop the removal.

wooden deadbolt

Even if your lock is working, but especially if it is not and you don't have another type of deadbolt installed you might want to try something like this to make sure your door does not come open while traveling. Someone passed this on to me several years ago and he called it a wooden deadbolt. It works and its cheap insurance. The pictures below show a piece of 1'' X 2" wood stock cut down to 10" long and 1 1/2" wide. There is a large notch cut towards one end just wide enough to fit over the handle on the right side of the door. There is another small notch on the other side of the wood that fits over the edge of the door trip as shown. The exact measurement between the notches and their actual depth will be determined on your trailer. The point is that you want this to fit snug. Insert it under the door handle with the large notch on top and then turn the wood from the top towards you. When in place it sholud fit snug and will not fall out as you tarvel. Your door will not come open with this in place. When you reach your destination just turn it back from the top towards the trailer and remove.

It has always worked for me and provides good insurance that the door will stayed closed when on the road. Of course you can paint it silver and make it look better, I have been saying I am going to do that for a long time.

I'm having the same issue in my 76' 31' sovereign , I just replaced the tumbler with a replacement from inland, which worked out great , however I'm starting to think that my handle is a little different than the other images posted and I cannot see a hole to screw machine screw into. The opening (pictured) has no vertical or horizontal movement when inspected with flashlight and screwdriver. I'm starting to think that the door handle assembly has been replaced perhaps. Thanks,Jurassic Blueberries AKA DeadAir

A "pin" is missing from that hole.

The pin is screwed into a "vertical locking shaft" and is move up or down as the case may be, to lock or unlock the entrance door lock.

They can easily be added without removing the lock.

I cannot find the hole on that shaft to put screw lever into. Do I have to remove all rivets on inside of door to access that lock ? Is there a way to move that shaft so I can see the hole that pin goes into? I don't think it is broke . It appears to be unscrewed. What a pain!!!
