File Cabinet locks are an excellent way to secure your file cabinet contents and comply with HIPAA regulations. The simple to use, easy to install bar securely fastens to the side of any file cabinet (1/2" of space needed next to drawers). Bar has a closed end for added security and a convenient knob for easy and smooth operation. This file cabinet lock can provide a second layer of security to those units with built-in locks or, if your keys are lost, these bars can provide an easy lock replacement system without having to replace the entire cabinet. THIS ITEM REQUIRES THE USE OF A PADLOCK. A padlock is not included, but we recommend the use of an ABUS 55/40 padlock, which is available as keyed-alike and keyed-different. If using your own, make sure it is a 40mm padlock and has a 1/4" shackle diameter.
From the Manufacturer
The ABUS File Bar has enclosed ends which give it a modern look. These enclosed ends also greatly reduce potential shipping damages. There is a conveniently located knob in the center of the file bar for easy and smooth operation. The file bars can be mounted on the right and left side by simply reversing this knob. There is no longer any need to disassemble the bar. The ABUS File Bar is constructed of heavy 16 gauge steel. All the hinges are locking lugs of 16 gauge steel. All mount screws are included with each bar.
Top customer reviews
I was surprised when the package arrived and found they these bars are manufactured in China. From my research prior to buying, I thought they were manufactured in the U.S. The steel is heavy gage. While I believe that these will do the job, (albeit difficult to operate) the bars are attached with self-tapping screws. As a result, I believe these bars could be easy pried off with a crow-bar or even the claw side of hammer. I would suggest that if you wanted something more secure, to replace the self-tapping screws with bolts and nuts. I'm also surprised that outer bar does not have an additional metal flange that is at a 90 degree angle to the portion of the outer bar that screws ( or bolts) into the file cabinet. In this way, it would be impossible to get a crow-bar or claw end of a hammer under the outer bar. I do not believe such a flange would interfere with the opening and closing of the file drawer.
However, our primary purpose is to keep honest people honest, and know if the cabinet has been opened. We have a high security lock on this, so to get in is going to damage the cabinet or this locking bar, and we will know roughly when that happened, which is all we really need from it.
Don't expect it to keep someone out, just expect to know when they were in there. If someone is even a little determined to get in, they can.
Works great, and now the lock can be easily replaced if a padlock messes up. Fairly easy to install. It can be installed on either side, so don't throw the directions away until you figure out which way is up.
The only downside is that two of the screw heads broke off while I was installing it. If I purchase another, I will make a trip to the hardware store for some stronger, better quality sheet metal screws. If the manufacturer reads these reviews, here is a hint: supply better screws!
That is the only reason I didn't give this device 5 stars. Other than the install headache of drilling out the broken screws and re-installing better ones - I love this locking device.
And, once again, Amazon came to the rescue with a vendor that offered free freight. I started to purchase this from the manufacturer's website. But the freight seemed high, for a low weight item so I searched the internet. Thanks again, Amazon, I sleep better at night with my investment protected!
