Reasons For Needing To Unlock File Cabinets In Los Angeles

File cabinets tend to be built with more simplistic locks than your front door, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need to take care of them. They can get worn out, just like any other lock, causing all kinds of trouble and potentially preventing the file cabinet from unlocking altogether.

It’s possible that you were, at some point, rough on your file cabinets or didn’t lubricate them properly. They also may just be getting old and aren’t working as well as they used to. Don’t worry – we can unlock file cabinets in Los Angeles.

How To Unlock File Cabinets In Los Angeles

The method for unlocking file cabinets in Los Angeles depends on the actual problem with the lock. If you’ve lost the key and need a rekey, the locksmith has to drill the lock open before replacing it. This destroys the old lock, but the locksmith will have a replacement ready to install.

They won’t have to drill if you have the old key and just need a new file cabinet lock. The locksmith must open the cabinet and remove the c clip and linkage piece, pulling out the cylinder and replacing any of these parts if necessary. After that, you can choose a new lock to replace the old one.

Types Of File Cabinet Locks

Why not look at your file cabinet lock options if you need to install a new lock anyway? Most likely, your old lock is a typical cam lock. There isn’t much variety in cam locks. That said, you still need to check if your new one is compatible with your cabinet before hiring someone to unlock your file cabinets in Los Angeles.

You can also upgrade to an electronic system. Many companies sell file cabinet locks with fingerprint readers, RFID scanners, and digital combinations. These are great if you need your file cabinet to be extra secure. We can determine what’s compatible for you as we unlock your file cabinets in Los Angeles.
