Yeah, the bargman locks are few and far between. What is wrong with yours? Mine was not locking very good with the key so I took mine apart and tightened up and lubed the internals and it works perfect now, if you take it apart (very easy to do), it might just be a loose screw.

Yea, before I paid $210 I'd take it to a locksmith and have it overhauled.

It may not even require that, these things are pretty simple inside, a couple springs, some screws that can loosen and that is about it. Take it apart and check it out, I'll bet something inside just loosened up.

Mine wouldn't lock at all, took it apart, the spring for the locking part was gone, went to TSC, got a spring pack and made one,works great now.

I couldn't get ours to lock with the inside button. Found out I had to get the key lock centered, then it worked fine.

Bob, Mine also won't lock from the inside and I'm afraid that loose parts will 'fly free' when I take off the inside panel to check it out. But it doesn't sound like it's an awful job? Referring to your quote, how did you get the key lock 'centered' ?
