How to Replace File Cabinet Locks

An important addition to office furniture, file cabinet locks are an easy and economical option to keep everything from files to personal items safe.

Before getting ahead of ourselves, if there is currently a lock and mechanism in the furniture, a new file cabinet lock may not be required. Just enter the lock code (found on the face of the lock core) and the manufacturer on to purchase a replacement key. If you would prefer to change the lock core to use a different lock code (key), you can switch the lock core to another code within the same series. A change key, new lock core, and a new key would be required for this option.

Now, on to the file cabinet locks! If the existing lock is damaged, or if there is not a current lock, a new filing cabinet lock replacement is for you! Finding the correct lock kit for your item doesn’t have to be difficult. It’s easy to select your lock as long as you know the manufacturer and have the previous lock measurements. If you do not have that information, just send photographs of the furniture to Our team will help you become the office hero!

Secure your Business with a File Locking Bar

Afraid Karen is going to take your M&Ms? Or maybe you need to protect something a little more serious like employee information, tax files, or even Peanut M&Ms!

File locking bars are a great solution to add extra security to an existing file cabinet. File cabinet lock bars attach to the outside of a file cabinet and are secured with a padlock. Even if someone has a key for the existing lock core in your furniture, the additional padlock would require a new and unique key.

The external file cabinet lock bars are determined by the size of your furniture piece – Easykeys provides multiple sizes ranging from one drawer all the way up to 5 drawer filing cabinets. The ABUS filebars are constructed of 16-gauge steel and include the screws required for mounting. The file locking bars are reversible and can be mounted on the left or right side of the cabinet, making it even more accomodating for your space. File cabinet lock bars are so secure they meet the DoD industrial security requirements!
