VANs RV7 Canopy Lock Barrel Replacement

Post by fawkesb » Fri Jul 03, 2020 1:33 pm

I recently acquired a VANs RV7 aeroplane and the previous owner had lost the canopy lock 'keys'....

It is possible to buy a replacement from VANs and through VANs Forums at vast expense, and there are many 'similar' barrel locks on eBay and Amazon, but I am curious to know if anyone has a weblink to any exact replacement locking barrels with keys that can be removed in both the unlocked and locked positions?...
