File Cabinet Lock Installation

Generally speaking, there are two types of file cabinets – the ones with a lock and those without any. Surely, if there isn’t a lock in your file cabinet, your documents are not safe.

But, you can solve this issue easily. All you got to do is call us to install locks there. But, we won’t install just any type of lock. We’ll install those that are nearly impossible to pick. And even if your file cabinet does have a lock, it doesn’t mean that it’s good enough to keep the burglars away.

In fact, the experience has thought us that commonly-used cabinet locks aren’t that good in terms of security. That is why we recommend replacing them with brand-new file cabinet locks. You just need to pick a type of lock you want and we’ll get on the job. To help you out with your choice, here are some of the most popular file cabinet lock types.

Cylinder Locks

By far, the most popular type of file cabinet locks, cylinder locks require a key to lock/unlock. The biggest advantage is that they’re fairly cheap and very easy to replace. On the downside, they can be somewhat impractical – you need to have the key with you all the time. And if you lose it, you gotta call our nationwide locksmiths to make you a new one.

Cam Locks

File cabinet lock installation

As the name suggests, these locks use the “cam”, a part that does the latching as you turn the key. Same as cylinder locks, cam locks are also very easy to install/replace. They too require the use of a key.

Lock Bar

As cylinder and cam locks can be a bit impractical, especially in busy enterprises, a lock bar might be a solution. Basically, the bar is installed outside the file lock cabinet, covering several drawers at once. This way, not only the lock bar adds to the security, while also improving the convenience – it allows one person (the boss, for example), to have access to all the file cabinet drawers. 

Keyless File Cabinet Lock Replacements

The old-school file cabinet locks might not be enough to keep your files 100% secure. It’s the 21st century and the thieves’ techniques have become more advanced. To make sure no one steals your company’s files, why not take advantage of modern technology?

There are all kinds of high-tech file cabinet locks these days that can not only improve the security but your convenience as well. Here are some types that we heartily recommend.

Keypad Locks

Rather than using a key to open the file cabinet, you get to use a keypad. Just type in the code number and voila, you can open it! The best thing is that you can pick your own code and change it whenever you feel like it.

Keycard Systems

Instead of using keys, you and your employees got to use keycards in order to open the file cabinet. It’s pretty practical, but there’s another advantage – the system keeps a log of who and when had opened the file cabinet. This way, if a file goes missing, you will know who stole it.

Bluetooth File Cabinet Lock

To be completely honest, keeping a key or a keycard in your pocket all the time isn’t too practical. And lock codes are easy to forget. If you agree with this, then Bluetooth file cabinet locks are what you need. Basically, in order to get access to the file cabinet, you just need to use your smartphone.

The keys to my office went missing, just disappeared last night. I was so frustrated, besides for being embarrassed in front of my employees, I also didn’t want to lose money due to the delay. I called for a locksmith and Justin came over straight away, he suggested re-keying the lock, in case my keys were stolen, I thought this was a great idea, and that’s what we did, he then made new keys for me on the spot.
