There are tons of these modern door locks out there. You could probably adapt something like this. These are really common on modern RV's so you are likely to find parts. You can get them in just about any finish you want. What you got to lose for $25. There is probably a manual somewhere online but I would just buy one and see what the measurements are going to be by playing with it. Hopefully you can use the same hole and enlarge it a little. If not, then make a patch and mount the lock where it need to go.

Thanks!

Perry, thanks for the scoop. I'm going to try it. Ill let you guys know how it goes. I'll save my Keeler stuff in the event I ever find what's needed to make it work but if I can make one of these work (and I will) it will give me some peace of mind. I worry every time I leave.

I believe you need the KT Lock for a '72. They're for '70 - '77.

Keeler is from '78 to '90 (?)

I know because I've spent several hours looking for KT Lock parts online for my '75 Overlander. I cannot find them anywhere.

Yes they do...sorry, I should've been more specific. I believe the specific part I'm going to need is a new cylinder and those don't seem to be available anywhere at the moment.
