Red face I did it now I have an air door question

Has anyone come up with a way to secure the air doors? I have bought a 98 International 3800 DT466E. I'd really like to keep the doors but I don't want to use a padlock. I'd like to be able to lock it from the inside as well as the outside, has anyone come up with a solution they're using?

How cool is that - I'm in Prince George, Va. Thanks for that I'm picturing that on the inside of the door that overlaps on the outside - and a locking handle?

The "D" handle is inside, "T" handle is outside.
2 long rods get fitted to pins that rotate moving rods up n down.

This is where I first saw the Atlantic shed latch used, in a video posted by this skoolie builder.

My Bluebird has a factory-installed lock. I don't know where you would get it but it basically is a pin that is cable-actuated to the top of the door with a lock cylinder on the outside of the door. I have a latch on the inside to keep people out when the door is locked from the inside.

My doors are 2 panel swing outs. They overlap and are mechanically connected. If one is locked the other won't open.
