Anderson Hickey File Cabinet Lock Kits (Vertical Files)

We often receive questions about which Anderson Hickey file cabinet lock kit should be purchased.

We are not able to reference Manufacturer model numbers to suggest which lock kit you need. If you have other identical cabinets in your work environment with lock kits, it is best to compare the internal locking components for correct fit.

For standard vertical file cabinets, a good indicator to determine the lock type is to measure the mounting hole.

Anderson Hickey Locks - Main Page

2194 style lock kits, are the older push-in to lock (plunger style) and require a larger hole.
The mounting hole dimensions for 2194 style locks are basically 1" vertical and 3/4" horizontal.
2194 style product page: Sku 34260 

2197 style are rotate to lock and unlock type:
The mounting hole dimensions for 2197 style locks are smaller, basically 3/4" vertical and 5/8" horizontal.
2194 style product page: Sku 34262  - this kit may also fit some Premier and Globe cabinets (not global).


We have very little information on lateral file cabinet lock kits or components for Anderson Hickey cabinets. If you are lucky enought to have several of these in your office, it is always best to compare the locking components that are used on a functioning cabinet to determine what you will need to make it lock.

We only sell file cabinet locks and associated parts. If you cabinet does not have locking rods we normally suggest File Cabinet Locking Bars.
