Good day all,
What are you using to lock the front door in your bus from the inside?
My bus used to have a pneumatic door, but the ram mechanism was removed by the previous owner. I'm left with a desire to make a solid door locking system and I figure someone has more creativity than I.
Currently, I am holding the two doors together with a piece of wood wedged in-between the right side door "bar" (at the top) and the frame. I'd like to use the "knob" on the left door in the same way...something wedged in there to keep it from moving(like the original ram), but easily remove-able to "unlock" the door.
Currently, I am using the emergency exit as the first entry/last exit door, and the main doors for the family and all other ins-and-outs.
I'm looking for ideas that don't involve welding or screwing into the door itself (just using the frame as the anchor point).
At some point, it would be great if I can make it unlock electronically (using an actuator and a car alarm system maybe?).
Thanks for any ideas/help!!!
(Notice the brown board in the center of the door)
