There is a number on the lock, does this tell me what lock to buy?

File cabinet lock key numbers:

The number stamped into the face of the lock (by the keyhole) does not necessarily indicate the lock type, but normally indicates information on the key that will work that lock - however we can supply some precut keys for certain lock codes, or manufacturers.

For more information on precut keys, please review these pages: Chicago, Dom/Reff, Hudson & Anderson Hickey, Kimball, Timberline, and others.

If you just need a replacement lock cylinder with keys, most OEM file cabinet locks were made by ESP/Hudson, Chicago or National. You will need to remove your existing lock cylinder and compare the dimensions to the locks shown at the above links.

Please Send us a request for further information.
