lock?

Good afternoon everyone, (message to Ron...awning ordered..thanks)

The unit I have is a 1976 Trillium...it is in very nice shape. The door lock works fine, but I only have one key. The number on the key is very worn, and I can't get a match. Does anybody know where I can order a brand new door lock, with new keys?

Thanks every one, and happy camping this season.

Don

I had same problem but went to a good locksmith and now have all the keys I want. Thev locksmith is STRATFORD GLASS located in Stratford Ont. @ 47 Dover Street, 519 -271-8000. They had lots of blanks. Sure they would be able to help.
I would think any good locksmith in your area would help.

Hmmm. I didn't realize they were that hard to replace. We had a family camping trip and discovered that the keys were completely compatible with all units. The key for my old trillium worked in my uncle's brand new 5th wheel. It made me a little nervous of security!

Well Ron, I thought I found the best locksmith in Collingwood, came recommended! Well, this guy didn't even want to look at my unit! Sorry buddy, can't fix it!
So....I thought somebody on the board might know a better way. It doesn't really have to be fixed, I just worried about only having one key.

Thanks again everybody....Donny

Just had and idea...I'll call this locksmith in Stradford, get him to mail me two blank keys (I'll pay him) and have a "key guy" in town here do it for me. The problem was, nobody could find a blank key match.

Good man Ron.....you really have no idea how much you helped me. My canvas should be here on Monday...I'll make sure to let you know how well this thing turns out.

This is the one I replaced my busted Scamp lever door handle with... it has the same square diameter shaft, just needed to take a hack saw and cut it to length. I figure with so many people having electric garage door openers, few people carry keys for a garage door. Even the screw holes lined up perfectly on the door: Shop Genie Garage Door Lock Handle at Lowes.com=

I'm not really sure I understand the problem. You have a key that works, right? If so simply take the key to a lock smith, hardware store, even a WalMart and have a duplicate made.

Good evening....I can't, I've tried. The number on the key is worn off. Of the 3 lock guys in Collingwood, they can't find a match for that old key model. Without the perfect match, they can't cut the new keys.

Thanks..anyway, it's appreciated.

Thank you Donna D...if I can't get the problem fixed, I'll try your idea.

I'm really sorry you can't find a lock smith that can do the job. I've had keys duplicated when they didn't have the right blank. The guy made a blank by modifying another blank. I think I've got about 3 keys made that way.
If it was me, I'd simply use the trailer with large key fob attached to the key and every town I went through I'd try to find a lock smith that could do the job.

I don't know if this will help but I count 5 that make duplicate keys in Collingwood.
