Keyless cam locks consist of a cylinder with an attached arm, or cam, that rotates to lock or fasten shut cabinet doors, file drawers, and other furniture. They’re opened with slots, combinations, or handles instead of a key, so users don’t need to keep track of one. They secure the furniture’s contents to prevent theft or unauthorized use or to keep the drawer or door from sliding or swinging open.
Keyless slotted cam locks open by inserting a flathead screwdriver or coin into the slot and turning it.
They install in drawers and doors to prevent them from sliding or swinging open and to provide some deterrence from accessing the contents.
