Default Want locks for trailer doors

On our new trailer we have the following locks. Would like to replace with the kind that I can key to the truck key. Not opposed to a little fabrication. Canít find this type of replacement. Anybody know where. Thanks.

Maybe a locksmith? I bought a clam shell trailer, had the twist handle like the first pic, did not get a key. No luck getting one made, but found a matching replacement handle with key for under $20 at a site that sells truck cap parts. Turns out the handles are the same.

I would bet a camper supply outlet, or website would have parts for the second pic, but I doubt you will get them to match your truck. Plus, you will likely replace the truck before the trailer, and wind up with a mismatch again.

I just keep the trailer keys on a separate ring, including key for tongue lock, and a padlock to lock the back, and the one to lock my bar into the receiver on the truck. I just toss that key set in the pocket of the truck door on trips, so I always know where it is.

All these cores are far less deep than a typical truck key core. Like 1/4 as deep. You can get new cores easy, but keying to a typical truck key is not possible unless you want to spend an unrealistic amount of money to fabricate new cores and door hardware from scratch.

I agree I don;t think your going to find any locks that are worth the costs to get them so many truck keys are in different sizes and shapes, and very few even have keys anymore period
them locks on trailers and truck caps(SHEDs too)
are almost all the same key too LOL
my last two trailers keys fit my sheds, cap on truck and a few other like locks
there like a one key fits all, and just gives you silly peace of mind thinking its locked
if a crook wants in, them locks ain't stopping them
I understand the pain to have so many keys on a key chain side too
but I doubt the costs to have them made would be worth it in the long run to be honest!
if all you want is one key for trailer and couplet and such, maybe add a lock system to these trailer locks and don't use them and get keyed the same pad locks?
just a thought!

First pic is a basic rv 751 key. get a key at any rv dealer. Second pic is another rv lock. different than 751 lock. One key slot is for deadbolt while one on handle is for handle lock. If you need a key for that one ...unscrew assembly and get the 4 digit code inside and an rv dealer can get you one.

I dont know how much effort I would put into changing the actual door locks. My next door neighbor had a 7 ton rubber tracked excavator stolen out of his back yard this past weekend.

Machinery is easy to steal, keys can be used from one to the other

Its even easier than that. This was a pretty new bobcat mini so it uses the four digit code you punch in and then make a high speed get away I guess? I've used his machine many times. Another local contractor who had the same thing happen about two years ago stopped in and told me to tell him to check the bridge cameras headed into NJ. He said they all go straight to the port and into a container. And in a year or so somebody will plug that machine into a dealer scan tool in Mexico or Spain and poof. Theres the stolen machine!

the deal with bobcats, is, when ever you need dealer parts they require you to give serial number! it has lead to recovery of a lot of stolen machines over the yrs,
so these days most that get stolen get parted out, as a way to NOT get caught
and odds are are worth more $$ this way too

but as fo them getting stolen often, NOT really in my area, they move too slow
but off larger construction sites I have known of many disappearing, even while folks are on the site working,as things come and go so often, no one many times thinks anything of seeing one get loaded and taken away!

and again, MOST trailers ALL use the same key on locks too, but there not as easy to hook up and move to steal pending how you park em! LOL

One of the main reasons I bought a 7X16 enclosed was due to the fact, I can and have put large padlocks on the rear ramp and side door. I leave my equipment in there as well as my sled, and its also nice when I am riding in the Mountains to know that its locked.
Far as your situation, you could ask folks who build custom trailers if that's something they can help fabricate, like Car Mate or Rock Solid.
