File cabinet and desk locks are used to protect your most valuable files and documents. This is why it is crucial to make sure your file cabinet locks work properly and are up to the needed security level. Unlike door locks which mostly consist of a few more prevalent brands and keyways, file cabinet locks come in many different types and shapes.
Many file cabinet locks are designed to lock without a key and that is what makes them prone to accidentally lock. At Metrolocks, we understand that your locked file cabinets or desks might contain important documents and time might be of the essence. We have extensive expertise when it comes to file cabinet or desk locks so most of the time we can pick any lock and originate a lost key replacement if necessary.
It’s always important to know who has the keys to your file cabinets or desk when using them to store sensitive information or valuables. In the case that you are not sure who has a copy of the keys, it is highly recommended to re-key them to new keys. Just like door locks, most file cabinet locks can be re-keyed, and if re-keying is not an option we can always replace them with new locks. When we re-key file cabinets or desk locks, we cut new keys from scratch at your location and if necessary we can cut copies of the same key right there on the spot.
Just like with any other lock, file cabinet keys and desk lock keys are breakable and they will sometimes break inside the lock. At Metrolocks we have several techniques for extracting the broken key without causing any damage to the lock. This way we can cut a new key and the lock will still be in perfect working condition. You can count on us at Metrolocks for all your file cabinet and desk lock needs and even if you just want to ask us a question, feel free to call us anytime .
