How do cam locks work?
The cam lock is a locking lever that can be used to secure doors, lockers, safety boxes, windows, cabinets, drawers, file cabinets and many other items. Cam locks are typically used in offices where clients or customer’s personal information is being held. This lock is opened with a regular flat key that is designed like a house key or car key.
What are camlock fittings used for?
Cam locks are cylindrical locks with a hole for the key and revolving lock arm or plate, the cam, at the other. Cam locks are frequently used to lock doors, like cabinets and enclosures.
What is a cam lock key?
A cam lock key is the key used to open a cam lock. There are two main types of cam lock key. The first one is a regular flat key that is designed like a house key or car key. The second type is a key that is a round tubular shaped object that pushes into the cam lock.
What is a cam screw?
Cam screws are 2-part screws where the cam is fitted in one piece and the screw in a piece to be joined to this piece. By slotting the two pieces together and tightening the screw you have a reasonably secure join.
How are cam locks measured?
You simply need to remove the current cam lock and measure it if you are trying to measure a current cam lock to replace. You should measure along the cylinder to the cam’s inside face. Start from the head of the cam. This will help you determine the length of the cylinder.
The length of a cam is measured from the end of the cam to the center of the hole.
