Door locks

How do you guys lock you bus doors?
We have all the normal doors plus an extra one with a wheelchair lift to worry. What do you recommend?

On my front door, a length of chain with two keyed-alike locks and eye bolts. On the E-Door, a hole drilled through the lever and guard and a carabiner to hold it shut.

my rear door I put a C-clamp between the handle and the push-bar on the door.. the C-clamp can be slid over to get out in an emergency (not that tight).. and gravity has the C-clamp locking the door more.. so outside of a theif smashing the windows it would be really tough for them to get in that door..

Garage Door lock

Had the idea of using a garage door lock on the front door.
Basically the "T" handle (with the key hole) would be in the center (metal section) and the 1" flat bars would be on the inside of the bus.

To lock the door, you turn the "T" handle, and the flat bars would expand into a slot cut into the step (on the bottom) and a bracket welded to the frame above the door.

To unlock, you twist the "T" handle the other way, and the flat bars retract allowing the door to open.
