Kathy,

Thank you for posting this. This summer I ended up getting stuck real bad with the dead bolt jammed closed, good news we have 2 doors, but I had a heck of a time getting the screws out on the inside with the screen door in there. This is not something you want to have happen with a fire situation.

My key code is CF in place of HF and the dates are out of range but they also say about if you can remove the key in the 9:00 position regardless of the key code your in the recall. And that may have been what happened to us. I just went out and tried it now and I was afraid to push it much that it may lock up again.

I need to contact them and see what is up. And regardless I need a new cylinder as I have not trusted it since.

Thanks for posting this. I'm going to make it a sticky.

John

Thanks for posting, Kathy! Sure enough, I'm affected. Front door is good, but rear door is one of the HF numbers. Maybe they can replace it with one to match the front door?

Thanks for posting this!!

We have an escape door in the bunk in addition to the main door and both are affected. The main door qualifies under both condtions!! The dead bolt key can be removed in all three postions and the HF# is listed. The escape door is keyed to one of the HF#s listed!!

Will be contacting FASTEC for replacements.

When I called and spoke with them, they said they could send locks all keyed the same.....I have 4 locks affected - front, rear and (2) garage doors............the only thing they ask is that you send back the affected locks after your replace them.!

Awesome! I may as well get it keyed the same then!

I have a spare lockset I got out of the scrap/warranty bin a few years ago at work, so I think they will get that one instead of my original.

Sent from the one who still has all five original tires, including the blowout!

Really... it is worth changing the cylinders to just have 1 key. The RV industry must of took lessons from the older automotive days. Remember when the trunk key was different than the door key? On a car, well OK maybe but a camper?

John, thee real question here is - do you remember having to use a key to open your door or trunk, instead of pushing a remote button????

What who's old??????

I beleive it was called a "Valet" key. The purpose was to lock the glove box and the trunk with one key and give the ignition key to the valet to park your car, while keeping your "stuff" secure. Oh, crap!!! Valet Parking and a lockable glove box in the same sentence......whoa!! Reminds me of an old Statler Brothers song..."Do You Remember These"

With the age of blue tooth keys, well if you call them keys... there is no door key or ignition, it's a button... Getting into a new rental car can be an experiance... At least some brands fly up a message to say press the brake pedal so the car will start... not all do.... ask me how I know.... Why won't this dumb thing start....

Yeh, I had forgot about the glove box lock. They cost reduced it out of the equation so long ago... I had forgotten. Never connected the valet parking thing though. Just thoough thye had the trunk key to help make things some how more secure. This was before the age when the back seat folds down and you can climb in the trunk area at will...

Gee, make a guy feel over the hill with no return pass. I have vehicles that I drive daily and they have all the keys mentioned!!!!!

Now if you had said do you remember....double clutching, starter buttons, choke knobs, foot dimmer switches, vacuum windshield wipers and winged windows, along with fender skirts, curb feelers and continental tire kits, fox tails on twin antennas, dice on rear view mirror, suicide knob on steering wheel and little fans mounted on the top windshield frame....then I would agree.

Then what goes around comes back around. Like starter buttons on dash!

Oh, oh........all those things in red....1954 Open Cab Ward LaFrance fire engine that was third out engine when I started driving in 1977!!! Zeesh...I qualify!!!! Especially since I remember the rest of those things on my uncles '57 Belair!!



Oh yeah, remember I said open cab?!?!?!? The vacuum wipers had arms on both sides of the glass!!!

Note: The title on the picture is wrong it was a '54 not a '47.

Pull knob to get transmission into overdrive, front bench seats wide enuff to lay on, without seatbelts in the way, and were for comfort instead of protecting you when you crash (from when drivers accepted responsibility for their mistakes, even if it killed). Heaters under the dash with a on/off/temp adjusting knob that would glow when on. Bumper jacks for use on real steel bumpers without crawling under the vehicle.

Ah the good old days... We had a farm truck, ~ 52 Chevy, it did have electric start... the "button" was to the right of the gas pedal on the floor board. When your foot pressed the "button" it was actually engaging the pinion gear into the flywheel and then made the high current switch to engage the starter. This was before the age of a solenoid and a bendix on the starter.

And add to the list... a brake booster. This vintage had a single master cylinder, all mechanical, and the master cylinder was under the floor board. The brake pedal attached direct to the master cylinder plunger. The term "power brakes" was a high end luxury.. and I do not remember when it become more standard. Auto's sure where simple back then. Open the hood and you can climb in with a suit case and work on the engine. 1 barrel carburetor, an actual DC generator, I think it may have had vacuum advance on the distributor. Lost track of when that came to be.

Speaking of that, I recall when we where shopping for a new Pontiac Safari station wagon (~ 1985 time frame) the kind a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood would almost still fit in, the salesmen was telling me, this model even has a double master brake cylinder for added protection. I said to him, H'mm I thought was a federal law that came about in the early to mid 70's... He sort of stopped braging about all the features after that.

I must say auto's have come a long way since then in the last 50 to 70 years... And while it is fun to think back to the "old days" a lot of the advancements are really great and a whole lot more dependable. Disk brakes, electronic ignition, fuel injection, cruise control.... delayed wipers, power windows, power locks, heck power everything... Even the drive train gearing and engine speed. Back in the old days with little engines... the motor was so loud rev'ed up for all it was worth doing 55mph down the highway it was hard to even talk to the passengers inside...

Plus you wouldn't think of buying a car with 70,000 miles on it. It was shot.
