Replacement locks for OEM 751 keyed locks

I wanted to pass along that I found a source for replacing the all too common 751 storage compartment locks on our 2013 Jayco Eagle TT.

I just contacted Industrial Lock and Hardware. The locks will be keyed alike, but very unique so someone else having a key that'll work is all but impossible. They are sending me 3 new locks with the tubular style keys with dust covers. The sizes I ordered for the compartment doors are 7/8" long lock cylinders with 1 5/8" long lock arms and a 1/16" arm offset.

I'm very interested in this.....OUTSTANDING idea.

But I'm a little disappointed in the websites cryptic approach...no prices, print and fax in a form, no Pay-Pal or electronic payment. Not crazy about calling in or manually sending out my credit card information to a small business.

I have a few questions I hope you wouldn't mind answering now - or when you get your new locks for the benefit of everyone considering this helpful, easy mod. Thanks in advance.

1) Can you remove the key in the locked and unlocked position? (According to the picture you posted the answer is "yes"...but just wanted to make sure)

2) Approximate price per lock?

Replacement locks for OEM 751 keyed locks

This topic has been talked about on the other board and I believe the consensus was that it was virtually pointless. Sure, you might stop someone who was going to use his 751 key but someone with a screwdriver could still pry open the compartment.

You can get locks with different keys in Quartzsite during the winter show. The only problem with different keys is that if you don't have your key with you your neighbors can't help you get in.

Not arguing with you there....That's why I would not spend a lot for this mod. For me there are at least two benefits...1) I store my trailer where people come and go all the time and I think this removes some spontaneous temptation when they see the cylinder key.... 2) If they are going to pop (pry open) the door, it most likely wont close and least I will know when and were I was hit....

It's a deterrent....not a cure. And that enough insurance to be worth a couple of bucks to me.

Re: Replacement locks for OEM 751 keyed locks

The issue with the "Q" type lock is that it is also easy to unlock. A bic pen with the plastic end removed fits perfectly into the round slot. Wiggle it and twist.... kryptonite recalled all of there bicycle locks and replaced them because of that issue with that style of key.

I've done business with this place before. I had a big green Menard's toolbox where there was only about 5 different keys for every big green Menard's box made. Wanting to improve the security of my tools at work, I got better locks for it. They were the same type of lock and yes you could remove the key locked and unlocked.

I'm getting 4 locks, all keyed the same at $11 and change each.

I used the same company last year and replaced all my compartment locks. I am very satisfied with the lock cylinders I purchased for my 2013 26bh. The swap out/installation was easy.

I replaced all my compartment locks with new ones from Industrial Lock and Hardware. The locks were easy to replace and were as ordered and arrived quickly without issues..
