Types of Filing Cabinet Locks We Work With

You may not have known it, but there are actually many different types of locks for file cabinets available for purchase. You don’t have to settle for the standard lock that comes preinstalled on most filing cabinets, there are lots of other options available these days that might be better suited to meet your office security needs. The following are some of the most popular file locks that we can assist you with:

  • Cylinder lock- These locks can be used on their own, but can also be used as part of a master key system so that one lock can open many different file cabinets. A system like this would be perfect for larger companies with hire-ups who do regular audits of all the paperwork stored in the file cabinets.
  • National locks- These are very high-quality locks that are specially engineered to open and close very smoothly and efficiently based on their specially formulated design. If you are looking to lock and unlock your file lock with ease, these locks are a super convenient choice.
  • Disk Tumbler locks- These locks are made to be very durable and can handle a lot of wear and tear and are a great choice for busy workplaces where these locks will be used on a regular basis.
  • Keyless combination locks –These file locks work the same way that combination door locks work, only they are smaller and can be installed on your file cabinet. These locks stand apart because of their convenience. You won’t ever have to fumble around for a key to unlock your file lock with a combination, and you can only give out the passcode to authorized office personnel.
  • Chicago locks- Available for purchase and installation throughout the country, this is the standard filing cabinet lock that usually comes preinstalled in filing cabinets. These standard locks are not the most secure on the market but they are usually good enough for home offices and storing your private documents.  
  • High-tech locks- If you are looking for an out-of-the-box security solution for your filing cabinet, there are electronic locks that you might want to get for your office. These locks include electronic key padlocks as well as locks that come with alarms that are already built-in.
  • Lock bars- File cabinet lock bars are a very secure solution for locking several filing cabinets at the same time. A lock bar is an external bar that can be removed during office hours and then put back in place and locked at night when the filing cabinets are not being used and the office is closed.
  • Holga locks- If you are looking for a home file cabinet lock that is a bit more secure than a Chicago lock; this is likely the lock for you. These locks are secure cam locks with springs which are great for household use.

Dave is great! He was punctual and professional. And after installing the new locks on all of our doors, he cleaned up after himself! The same cannot be said for the last service I hired… would definitely recommend and use again!

We live not too far from Chicago and I spend about a hour and a half to get to my office. Mornings are always in a hurry for me and a broken door would be the worst I could expect. However, this was exactly what happened. I had no time to lose and so I called 247 Ontime Locksmiths. The expert guy from Locksmiths could fix the problem and I could go to work.

My car door didn’t open at all. Just a phone call to 24/7 Local Locksmiths and in less than 15 minutes I could drive my car again! Good job!
