Basement lock for 94 Breakaway
Does anyone have the specs of the longer mounting screws? Can I just use the ones from the old locks, or will the threads be different because they're metric?

New screw size is metric #4 x 1"..........Carl

Just an update on availability/prices. I just received 14 locks from ecph/southco @ $17.86 each and 2 keys at $2.95 each.
I was happy to see that the pals didn't have a weird bend in them as shown in the photo above.
And #4 x 45mm were the screws I needed to get, though my local hardware store didn't have the star lock washers, and I couldn't get the ones off the new screws. Another hardware store trip in the works.
Here's a photo of what you get:
They fit perfectly with no fiddling. The old locks were so bad that the screws broke rather than backed out, and one of the locks just fell apart when I pulled it out. They were a bit harder to remove than I thought they'd be because they were actually glued down. The new ones have a gasket instead.
And of course I over-tightened one and popped the seal on the storage door frame a tiny bit. Don't do that.
They work great though! Three down, 11 to go.

I can't edit my post above. Correction: #4x25mm screws, not 45mm. Those were for the storage bin doors.
The fuel, fresh water, and one other (I forget now) doors were not as thick, so the screws that came with the locks worked just fine.

Were the part numbers for your straight arm locks still the E3-35-35 or did it change?

You are nearly a Barth Junkie and you do not have an eraser in the lower right corner of you post? Please check and if it is not there I will ask Bill NY and Rusty to get this corrected.
