I have the same eye bolts, but with a chain and padlock.

That would be nice, except my beastie has full-length glass with no metal in the middle. I use a chain with two keyed-alike padlocks to secure the front entrance. For the e-door, I simply bored a hole into the inside handle and guard bracket and use a cheap carabiner. Someone tried to enter using the side door and couldn't.

Most of us like this type of deadbolt for the back and lift doors.

I don't think I would even get a key entry for the front, once the door closes the bar won't let it open again except from the inside, cause you have to lift the handle first over the metal stop.

I want a key lock for the back door tho

Coming and going through the back door is not part of my plan. The lock I posted will work for most door situations tho.

I'd never seen that lock used on a front door previously.

My front door locks with the ignition key. I've found I don't like climbing in and out the back door while in town but I wanted a deadbolt so I could unlock it from the outside for loading things without going through the front door first.

I still haven't secured my top hatch. I've seen a number of ways to do that but none are in place yet.

Here's our rear side door. Still need to do the rear with the same lock and figure out something for the front.
