    I locked myself out of my camper today... I found out that any small key and a wiggle would make the lock budge. Is this wear and tear or a typical occurrence with camper locks (snugtop).

    There's only like 3 tumblers so its not that surprising that it's easy to defeat if your lock has them set close together. I bet a paper-clip would defeat it as well.

    I learned just how easy it is to get into a camper top after having a key break off in mine and having to break in. A little brute force is enough to snap the mechanism most off the time. Ever since I just don't lock mine and keep anything important in the cab.
