It's more commonality of keys that concerns me

And knowing the manufacturer has a master
is interesting too

I hear you but my philosophy is make it hard as possible to get in so they lose interest
Maybe a metal guard plate over the weak spot too
Thanks for your thoughts

My original locks seized within two years, so I took the opportunity to change to a different assembly. Most locksmiths have a wide range of similar locks, just take a sample so you get the correct depth. Mine cost about $3 a unit, all are keyed alike, not 751's, and I was able to get weather covers for $1.30 each.

Almost all cargo locks are CH-751's from every manufacture. Also the Door lock (not the deadbolt) is masterkeyed so the dealer can open it and not have to carry around a huge ring of keys.

For the most part - the locks on the storage bay doors are the same for almost ALL manufacturers. The key to my 2007 Outback TT fit my 2015 Jayco storage bay. I know that lock/key number is used by almost all major RV makers. The downside is that anyone with a key can open your storage compartments. (And a small person could crawl in, push up the bed, and then they are inside.) The up side is that if you lock yourself out or lose your key - just about anyone will have one to help out.

For the most part, people in campgrounds are pretty honest. I've never felt like I had to worry - but still lock things up when away. My neighbors will know if someone is snooping and trying to break in. But when my trailer is parked in storage, I take most valuable stuff out.

I disassembled my CH-751 locks and repositioned the pins to a different configuration. Then took one of the locks to a smith to make a custom key that fit the new pin configuration. My neighbor's 751 key won't work in my locks now.
