I've got a broken filing cabinet lock I need to remove, but it looks like there is a special tool required (see the "bolt" highlighted in the photo). Any idea what tool is required?
I assume that you all use your file as often as I do for filing pins, plugs, strikes, faceplates, etc. I got a set of Nicholsons from HD and they're okay, but I'm not too impressed with how theyre holding up. What is the one file you use most often?
If you’ve never done it in your life, you’re better off just buying replacements with keys. As for instructions on how to file a key, I’m personally not too keen on revealing that information to non-locksmiths. I’ll let someone else handle that should they choose to.
I got a filing cabinet with a 159T code that is either an IN8 or Y11. My code express is not working, it would be much appreciated if someone had the cuts for this son of a bitch as I cant eject the core and after removing the entire cam, it isn’t the type you can unscrew or replace. I guess worst comes to worst, I can get a fucking long cam, grind the cam piece town and drill a fucking screw in there so that it can actuate the boltwork in the cabinet.
I already tried 42424 so that was no dice.
I have a file cabinet with 4 drawers. There is a lock on the second drawer that lock the first and second drawer. This lock uses a Wind Danbury key.
Now I want to install a second lock on the forth drawer, and lock both the third and fourth drawer in the same way. It is better to use the same lock and the same Wind Danbury coded key.
Anyone know the official name for this category of file cabinet lock that can lock two drawers? How can I order one such lock?
Here is the picture of the lock. The two “cams” lock the drawer and the drawer above it.
