    Well now, those are the same locks used on the old vending machines. They make that same size/style in a high security version. And for the 80's tubular locks with thi type of key as well a much harder to pick half round cut key. I did vending since '84. Now just coffee and espresso office coffee service. I'll have to look at my old locks. Hah!

    That is a lot of work to keep someone from using your shower.

    It's a long way to the water station.

    It's not about keeping someone from accessing the shower. In fact, I've never used it myself, although I imagine at some point I will. For me, it's about the convenience of having one key to unlock all the locks.

    Look up the Lockpicking Lawyer on YouTube. He's ruined my faith in all locks. ;)

    This happened to me with a '93 Jeep Cherokee Laredo! I will never forget. I lived in a very small town in WV, came out of Walmart, loaded my groceries in "my" car and got in and started it! I went to back out of the parking space, when I noticed all the mirrors were wrong and caught a glimpse around me. It was not my car!

    I was completely freaking out and couldn't get my groceries out of there fast enough. In retrospect, I should have found the owner and explained what happened just to make sure they didn't drive away with my car one day. Like I said, VERY small town. I'm positive we were at the store at the same time many times before and after this happened. There were quite a few identical Jeeps in that town, all forest green.

    I got rid of the shower lock and put in a thumb "lock" mechanism. Never understood why keys would be needed for the shower box.

    I always wondered why the cassette toilet has a key. [LOL] You never know when someone wants to steal your sewage, I suppose.

    I have a thumb lock ready to put on my shower box. I decided the reason why this (these) locked was just for travel security - so they wouldn't open on the road.

    I've used our cassette opening for a hiding spot occasionally over the years. The lock may not be secure, but a deterrent, in case anyone actually wants in my sewage compartment.
