I have to put a door lock on my MC8. I saw Jack put one on his.
Obviously, there are so many ways to do / put on a door lock.
!this looks really nice.

A. how hard is this to install?
B. Where do you get the lock mechanism? Any other tips on install. Is there a metal retaining plate it resides on?
C. Alternatives? or links.

Sorry. I know this topic has been brought up before but I am confused as to which way to go and helps if I can see how it works/gets installed. Not sure to do this, do a simple dead bolt, convert a rv lock, look for a marine lock, or I can just buy a bus lock from somewhere that fits a MCI8.
I know a door lock to lock people out will not be perfect, but all I am trying to be able to do lock the bus -- (hopefully its not THAT easy to break in)
with fairly easy install if that's even possible.
If I can avoid DAYS vs hours that would be ideal. A boat, truck stainless steel lock or ? anything that works!
I considered putting a round master lock hasp for security but looks kinda ugly and can put that on later if needed for extended "leave alone" periods possibly.
Not sure where to start. Pictures help a lot so - thanks for posting this. Looks great.
