Utility & Cabinet Locks
Electronic utility locks were not far behind. Electronic pushbutton cabinet door and drawer locks entered the market. Then came the electronic pushbutton safe locks.
In 2013, CompX introduced the RegulatoR push button cabinet door and drawer lock. This battery powered cabinet lock has two four- to eight-digit codes per lock, a user code and a supervisor code. It is available as a SlamCAM self-locking mechanism and manual lock. The SlamCAM spring loaded latch allows the user to push the door closed, automatically locking the lock. There is no need to close the door and turn the knob to the locked position.
The RegulatoR can be ordered in three cylinder lengths (7/16”, 1-3/16” and 1-3/4”) that are designed to fit into a ¾” diameter cam lock opening. Spacers provide additional latching dimensions. These cabinet locks are operated by two AAA batteries that provide a 25,000 plus operations. A low battery indicator notifies when the batteries need to be replaced. The battery compartment is accessible from outside of the cabinet.
Code Locks has introduced the KitLock Slam Latch for use with the KitLock KL1000 and KL1200 Locker electronic cabinet locks. These locks are equipped with 10-button keypad. There are four levels of codes: Master, Submaster, multiple user code and one-time user code (locker mode). The Master and Submaster are eight digits, whereas the user codes are four digits.
The KL1000 and KL1200 are designed to retrofit into cam lock door prep. Color options are available for the KL1000 and the KL1200. The KL1000 is available left and right hand horizontal, and vertical up. They are powered by two AAA batteries.
The KitLock Slam Latch allows the door to be pushed shut in order to lock. There is no need to turn the handle on the lock to secure the locker, cabinet or cupboard. These locks are adjustable for 1/8” to 1” thick wood or metal doors.
