Door handle lock peculiaritiy.


Recommended Posts

My wife locks me in the camper while I nap and she goes hiking. I guess she wants to keep me. The deadbolt can be unlocked from inside but the handle lock can not. Don’t ask how we know this 🙄. Yea I know we can just lock the deadbolt, but am I missing something.

The handle lock just keeps the outside handle flipper from moving. Think of it like a doorknob lock. You should be able to open the door from inside but, if you close it behind you, you'll be locked out.

Incidentally, the handle lock is not very secure at all. A hard pull or a small pry tool can easily overcome it.
