Quickest fix for KT lock 1975 Argosy
Hey all, first time poster and this is my first project on my first Airstream. New as they come!
Anyway, bought a partially redone 1975 Argosy 28 last summer. Planning on taking it out for our first trip with it in just a couple weeks but as we were in there this weekend cleaning it out, the KT lock broke.
We can insert the key, but then it just spins around, either way, never actually locking anything. Looking for a faster fix rather than the prettiest or most period accurate.
I've poked around the forums and it looks like my options are replacing the KT lock (can't find these in stock anywhere and even if I could $$$), fixing it, or replacing it with something newer and patching the hole. Someone in another thread mentioned kits that come with a lock and pre cut patch and rivets but didn't have a link and my searches so far haven't turned up much.
Would love some guidance on either repairing the KT lock or putting in a newer one. We are taking our two toddlers camping with us so I definitely need to get the door taken care of before we go! Thanks so much.
