gbaglo, I'm wasn't including you in my "why didn't you guys just buy new locks' question. You had a problem with the return postage.

OK. Scratch that part.
Need to point out that when I had a problem removing one of the lock cylinders, I phoned and Fastec had me describe what I was doing and told me what to look for ( a positioning issue ). They were on the phone with me as I removed the cylinder.

I am having difficulty with the deadbolt lock on my Escape 21. It won't let me insert the key without several tries, and I'm afraid I'm going to get locked out. I've squirted it twice with graphite but this doesn't help. The key number is not among those of the locks being recalled by Fastec. Does anyone know if I can fix this, or do I need to try to get a new lock?

thanks,

Mike Lewis

Mike, which lock is it, the paddle lock or the dead bolt?

That was my faulty one, I could not get the key into the cylinder lock. I removed the rear of the lock and got the number off the lock, FASTEC sent me new keys but I still could not put a master key into the deadbolt. Finally had to have a locksmith remove the old cylinder, the new ones work fine.

I might be wrong, but I don't bother locking the dead bolt from the outside.
I might use the lever inside to lock it at night.
I figure if someone wants to break in, being double locked isn't going to help much.
In my experience Fastec will take care of you.

A few weeks ago, an amateur thief tried to break into our 19' by making cuts in the door around the lock and we're able to somehow unlock the door paddle lock. Only thing that held firm and did not compromise was the deadbolt locked from the out side. In their frustration, they broke the window glass on the right side over the dinette settee. That was apparently too small an opening so they started trying to get into the trailer next to mine and unfortunately, succeeded. That little deadbolt saved my bacon!

This is precisely what I am concerned about. I will have the deadbolt fixed, one way or the other.
