You are correct Brad. You could position the handle up and really have a unique trailer. Will you have the new trailer at Alumapalooza?

Is this what you're looking for? I have two locksets and one interior handle that came off of a 1947 Spartan.

Both are right hand locks. With your back to the door hinge, the door swings out to the right. That places the plunger and handle to the top.

Look at the locks that Arrowstream has. It took me a while to find one like his. If you use it on a left hand door the key hole will be on the top and the handle will be on the bottom. I think that this is what you want. The extra lock that I have is the opposite of his

That is the original lock.

I hope you were able to get the lockset to work, you have the complete assembly now.

Can't quite tell if it's the same as yours, BradS. If not, I'll certainly be interested in yours if it isn't already spoken for. I can't remove it completely right now to be sure... but I'm feeling semi-confident at the moment since the handle is lining up with the guts. That's shown in a little video clip of the situation:

Hey guys ~ wanted to ask if anyone with the venerable L54 / L55 / H20-2 lockset has ever had one that's stuck. I bought one off eBay last week, and it appears to be seized. I cleaned the rust off in a white vinegar bath and oiled it up.

No dice. Would love opinions on how to fix without breaking it. Video attached:

For starters, from the last locksmith I worked in a hospital with ...
"Anyone caught using anything other than LPS-1 on a lock will be shot on sight."
99% of the time, any malfunctioning lock, door, cabinet, padlock outside, vehicle, antique, etc. was miraculously cured with only this lube.
NEVER oil or graphite.

My guess and just a guess is that its in a lock position. Try taking a flat screw driver and turn one of the openings to unlock. The smaller opening, just a guess.

Thanks Toastie, I'll give it a try but I recently had one (everything was opposite for a door with hinges on the opposite side) and that lock lever worked regardless of the inside handle triggering it.

That said, it's a solid suggestion ~ if it works I'll be sure to report back.

Toastie, you were correct: the smaller hole (actuated by the cylinder and key) needed to be turned a quarter turn... and then the "night lock" lever unlocked and worked normally.

However, this would mean that anyone with a key could lock someone else in the trailer... and they wouldn't be able to get out! I was able to confirm with another L54 owner that theirs did not have this issue... so perhaps the H20-2 handle and lock need to be installed for everything to work right.

Still testing, but thanks for the suggestions and I'll report back when I solve everything.
