My T-handle looks a little different. It doesnít have screw holes to mount. It has the number 332, but a G332 key I got does not fit at all. I was hoping someone who has an identical T-handle would know. I can try a CH751.

Have you contacted a lock smith ?

That T handle you have is pre CH751 key and at this point in time it’s pretty much obsolete .

So either replace the T handle or hope a lock smith can come up with a key blank and then make a key for your T handle , that would be the expensive option .

mine is a 67,a year older than OPs trailer. mine had all original locks.
they take the CH751 key.
67 doesn't predate the key so i doubt a 68 does.

Thank you for this information. Getting a ch751 key is certainly a quick inexpensive potential solution. I guess I havenít locked the rear hatch in the 30 years Iíve had the Tradewind.

Got the ch751 key and it does not go into the rear hatch lock, but it does fit and unlock my side hatch that I didnít have a key to. Guess itís time to buy a new T-handle if I want to lock the rear hatch.

Thanks for all the helpful posts!

the T-handles were pretty inexpensive.
