Our Filing Cabinet Locksmith Process

Once our locksmith assists you in selecting the file cabinet lock that best matches your particular needs, he will follow the next five steps to change your lock for you:filing cabinet locksmith service

  1. He will want to locate the lock that needs replacing and open it somehow. If the lock opens with the use of the key, great! If the lock doesn’t open easily, the locksmith will need to insert the chisel in it and then bang on the chisel with a hammer until it unlocks itself. Our locksmith might also accomplish this task by putting an electric drill in the spot where the key usually goes and then unlocking it that way. Once the lock is unlocked, he will open up the drawer that’ll provide you the best access to the internal locking mechanism.
  2. There is clip that attaches the lock to the inner cabinet walls, our technician will then locate it and remove it.
  3. If you’ve already selected a new lock to replace the faulty one, now is the time for our technician to install it in your filing cabinet. Using the demarcations from the last lock as a guide, he will place the lock in the exact spot where the original lock was. Our tech will then make sure the lock lines up with all the holes from the old screws. While we complete the installation, our locksmith will keep the key inside the lock the whole time.
  4. Our next step will be to make sure that the lock is completely secure and that it doesn’t wobble around from side to side at all. We’ll take the time and carefully screw in the lock with the use of a screwdriver. If we see that the lock is in strongly, we know we’ve done our job well.
  5. Now that our locksmith completed steps 1-5, he will likely run a few quality assurance tests. He’ll lock and unlock your filing cabinet a few times and see if it works well. If you see that your filing cabinet locks and unlocks easily with the turn of a key, then you know we’ve done the job right.
