The locks were easy to install. It took me about 15-20 minutes to install both locks. They look great. They are much better than the original locks.
Lock went on without any trouble, locks the compartment securely and works easily. It is exactly as advertised.
The chrome compartment locks are well made and perfectly replace the existing black plastic locks. The new locks look great and are more secure.
I bought this to replace a broken latch. Well made and easily installed. Planning on replacing the remaining latches with these.
Incredible upgrade. I'm a new Airstreamer, and this lock upgrade was literally my first mechanical upgrade to the trailer, it took seconds, literally, to switch out and the upgraded chrome lock not only looks super, but it secures the cargo hatch more snugly than the factory lock, with the added security of a unique key. Way to go, once again, Airgear! With thanks!
The replacement lock devices look fabulous. Installing the was very simple. I was surprised of the keys. Only one notch taken out. But saferthan the OEM locks, I guess.

AAAAA BETTER MATERIAL, THEY KEY FEELS LIKE A REAL KEY NOT LIKE A PAPER KEY. VERY HAPPY.
The locks are very easy to install. I’m glad to have different keys… won’t keep out a determined thief but nothing will if they want something bad enough.
Excellent product and easy to install
High quality materials, easy to follow installation instructions, at a reasonable price.
Really nice look, easier to use than original. Well worth the money. Very easy to install.
Proud to have it on my rig
Easy to install. Had two locks installed in less than ten minutes. They appear to be well manufactured. I like the nice chrome finish rather than the original black. You can easily adjust the lock latches by adjust the nut on bottom side of latch to get a snug fit when closed.
So appreciative that this lock was available! Our original lock suddenly wasn't operable - we just had our new to us AS for two weeks. It's installed and working well and of course, it's so much better looking than the original one. Thanks, AIR GEAR!
This is an excellent upgrade to the piece that locked me out on a recent trip. No more going through the bed to get to my external storage.
Easy to install both locks on our garage area. Came with 2 copies of the key. Works like a charm and looks updated.
I replaced all (6) of my black 001 key locks with these. I am not especially handy, but after I had done one, I was able to do the other five in about 20 minutes. They look much better, are high quality, and most importantly have (matching) unique keys for security.
The instructions were great and Rich Luther’s video gave me the confidence that I could tackle this.
I Love the new chrome locks. So easy to install and they give the AirStream a more upscale look.
And knowing that not everyone has the same key for access enables me to sleep a little better.
Thank you AirGear for this quality product!
Had to use the the cam from my existing lock for it to close tight other wise it would be 5 starts
Very nice looking upgrade. But the real reason I bought it was for the extra security, I have a significant electrical upgrade behind one of those exterior compartment doors. A little extra peace of mind.

The upgraded locks were easy to install and add a beautiful chrome look to our Airstream!!!

Nice looking product that installs easily & works smoothly with easy 2-nut adjustment for how tight of latching interface appeals to you when turning the key/locking mechanism. We like that these have locks that not everybody has keys to although no matter what lock you have if someone wants to compromise it bad enough they will find a way. We never leave anything in “ any “ of our outdoor storage compartments that would be painful to us if we had to replace again…, although thats relative to each of us.
Very easy to switch out with original lock. I did have to make some adjustments but no problem! Looks beautiful on our Bambi! Just have to quit calling the compartment the “001”
Looks great. Easy to install. Provides a feeling of extra security so that I don't worry about storing semi-valuable tools and accessories in the outside storage locker long-term while my Airstream is in storage.
For some reason the original lock didn’t last long … the key stopped working and put me in a jam on a recent trip. had to drill the old lock out. Found this one though airgear …. it was Easy to install ,solidly built and reasonably
Heavy and nicely cast and polished, these locks look so much better than the stock Airstream locks. We ordered seven and each box came with two keys, all locks are keyed identically in our order. After learning on the first one, it takes maybe 3-5 mins per lock to install, and the amount of clamping pull when you snap the lock down is easy to adjust. My only complaint is each lock costs a small fortune.
Totally cool looking and a great security upgrade for my 27 FWB. Now to change all the outside looks to this key and I’ll be set! Thanks again! Great store
Have not installed it yet but seems to be very high quality very heavy.
Good product. Didn’t quite fit but we made it work.
Great customer service!
These should come from the factory they are so good!
Locks retrofitted precisely and actually work smoother than the originals - although the added security was the primary reason for the purchase.
Extremely easy to install and they look great!!
Like the look and action of the lock. Was able to use on my 2014 Airstream by reusing the end piece from the original lock .
Order arrived in a timely manner. New locks were easy to install, although I had to use parts from my old locks to make the new ones compatible (2017 Flying Cloud 25RBT). New locks function and look fantastic, and all five are keyed with the same key which is really convenient. Highly recommend this upgrade.
One of our original locks was jammed, so we were compelled to buy new ones. Fortunately, I had just read the newsletter about 8 things to upgrade your Airstream with. Bought them. Installed them. Used the original cams as stated in the instructions. They do look better, but the action on them is quite smooth. A nice improvement over the originals to be sure. They look great too, but nobody will really notice them much behind our propane tanks cover. LOL.
Great product. Very well built and designed. No issues with the install.
Looks great, and work fine. Feel more secure.
BIG improvement over the factory installed locks. Looks great and easier to open, shut and lock now. When I first tried to close the hatch, the locks were very tight. I discovered that you just need to make small adjustments to the upper nut to lengthen the shaft to the desired result. I did that, and now it is smooth as silk.

The replacement locks are fantastic! Installation of three locks only took a total of 30 minutes. They really look sharp! Plus, they add to the security of our Airstream’s storage compartments.
The lock-out preventer is another “gotta have item” if one owes an Airstream. Easy to mount. Easy to use.
Easily to replace the old locks. Looks sharp.
The Lock fit perfectly in the original cutout. I did have to transfer the swing arm from my old mechanism to the new lock. The new swing arm did not reach the wall of the opening. The new mechanism looks much better and operates more smoothly than the old.
Locks look fantastic, work great and super easy to install....not to mention now we are more secure. Thank you!
Easy to install, looks great.
Easy to install. Classy looking. Greater security for the increasingly expensive toys in the cubbies. Love your trailer a bit with these babies!
Everything wonderful could be said about this lock upgrade and the helpful video and instructions that were provided. The new lock looks better and it works better. The grade is A plus!
Easy install. Great looking! Quality product!
Items were sent quickly. They are better looking than the OEM black latches, but the structural quality is not any different. Kind of expensive for what you get.
Installed easily and looks good. Best part is the individualized key.
Very easy to install and adjust. It's nice to have different keys than what is standard on the Airstream. And they look much better.
Works well and easy to install.
Very sturdy and very well made, plus it looks good on Agnes!

Nice locks that are easy to install. Adds some nice bling
Exactly as expected. Big upgrade!
Great, Could close a bit tighter
Really nice and inexpensive upgrade. Simple directions and easy installation. Hoping a stainless steel version is offered down the line.
These look great and provide added security. I didn’t order enough, so will be ordering more!
Too easy to install. Looks great. And having the storage areas more secure, sleeping easier.

Great looking lock set for Airstream.
Be aware that you must re-use the internal “catch-arm” from previous lock set.
For our 2015 Flying Cloud, the depth required to latch was “longer” than the new one furnished.
These are a very nice addition to the black versions that come stock on AS. The non-751 keyed locks are an added bonus. It take about 3-4 minute to change each one. I used the original arms off the old latches and put them on the new ones so the fit is just like to factory parts.
Makes sure you get the old seals off the outside before you install the new ones. Sounds obvious, but when the doors are down during install you might not see them.
They really do look nice and feel much more rugged. Worth the price of upgrade.
Drop in replacement fit perfectly. Even included new gaskets. Reused the lock washer at the top of the stack. Very happy.
They installed ver easily and seemed to work a lot smoother than the stock locks.
Easy Install, Looks Great and Works Great!
Appears to be a quality replacement product. Well-made. Designed and fits like the original lock. I would have given it a 5-star rating but I will wait to see how the chrome holds up over time. I thought it was a bit pricey, but what isn't these days?! Installation was only a few minutes.
This replacement latch took less than 5 minutes to install and it looks great! A nice upgrade to the black latch that is standard on Airstream storage hatches.
More robust and smoother key insertion than the original. This is what should be on all airstreams.
Excellent quality, easy to install, and reliable!
So easy to install. Replacing the stock plastic latch with this heavy-duty metal upgrade not only looks and feels great, it also secures your Airstream with a key that is unique to the lock. Everyone has a key that fits the old locks--they're ubiquitous. I seldom worry about theft while camping but in storage I've had my compartments looted. This latch solves the issue. I was pleasantly surprised by the metal construction and quality. Looks great too.
Easy to install and the stainless looks better then the black plastic OEM ones. I just like the piece of mind that my keys are not identical to everyone else.
Fantastic upgrade! Replaced all of our locks…one key. Plus they look great!
Easy ordering from Airstream Life Store and very quick turn around. The product, I purchased six as we have a twin model Airstream was easy to install and came with plenty of keys, all keyed alike as well as simple to follow instructions. I was careful installing them and I think the whole process took half an hour for all six, maybe less.
The locks were easy to adjust and significanly better than the plastic ones supplied with the trailer from Airstream as they latch much more securly and tighter. One of our side doors never closed and locked properly, even adjusted at the factory once, now it does with the new Chrome Locks from The Airstream Life Store.
Easy install - great quality - looks better - more security
Works and looks great.
These locks look great. 10
The Airstream store shipped this immediately and even called and emailed me to let me know when it would ship after I inquired about the order processing time. Item arrived in a few days and was easy to install. Looks great. Thanks!
These locks are stronger and more secure. Highly recommended.

Easy installation. Much better looking than OE. More functional.
Thank you They locks look great,
Looks great and secure!
Nice replacement, black to chrome. But, for the price, I was surprised that you have to reuse the old gasket as the new latch doesn't come with one. Even states in the instructions to reuse the old gasket.
The installation video was helpful. I had to use the two inside latches from the original latches that came with my 2019 GT. The ones that came with the latch were too short. The external view looks awesome.
Great locks - very high quality. OEM ones were falling apart. I used the inside latch plates from the original locks - the ones provided were too short.
Fast shipping and super nice product!
Easy to install...I use some of the original parts to fit my hatch on my 23FB.
Great lock! Easy to install. Looks great!
Very attractive an great improvement. The original locks failed. I hope these will last longer.. they look like they should.
Easy to install. Enhances the beauty of my airstream.
These latches are great; they look better than the stock ones. However, only one of them is likely to arrive at your mailbox all nice and shiny looking! That’s because the supplier ships them with the keys loose in one of the boxes - neither the keys nor the latch are wrapped in anything!! One of my brand new latches has "wonderful" scratches on it, which I didn’t even apply.
I now have peace of mind, I knew most airstreamers could get into my storage compartments because most keys were the same. I know have my own keys. I also like the chrome look. Easy to install, took about 15 minuets to install 6 locks.
It’s my understanding the original (black) locks that came on the trailer have a common key. So any Airstream owner can open anyones Airstream storage area. In addition, the quality is much higher than the original locks. The key slides in and out and turns the lock much easier. However, they are rather expensive.
So simple to install. The directions are pretty much idiot proof and they work better than the plastic originals… and look better too!
Looks great it was easy to install really happy over all highly recommended
Easy to install, look great and the locking mechanism is much smoother than my original locks which were very sticky, hard to turn and hard to insert and remove the key.
I bought two and couldn't be happier. Really nice quality and I highly recommend this product to Airstreamers for their rigs.
Nice Upgrade and easy to install

Looks very nice, easy to install. I would have given 5 stars if it had come with new gaskets. Be careful during installation not to overtighten the one screw that holds the lock in place. Doing so will give a concave appearance to the outside of the locker door. I needed to use reuse the longer screw on the old lock. I would buy again.
I love this upgraded compartment lock. The swap out was super easy. It’s a small detail, but the completed look is very polished and looks like it was original to the trailer. Highly recommend this product.
Very good quality and easy install. We’ll worth the cost.
Nice quality. Better than the black plastic standard ones. The latches were not long enough to engage the door when locked, so I had to re-use the ones from the original ones. Also, you have to re-use the rubber seals from your original ones. At this price, they should come with the rubber seals (and with latches long enough to actually reach).
