One of the most popular types of locks we sell are file cabinet locks. File cabinet locks are a very important type of lock that is meant for replacing your existing or old file cabinet lock. If you notice that your file cabinet lock is no longer in working order, then its time for you to replace it. After several years of usage, sometimes the lock can become defective or damaged. File cabinet locks are inexpensive to replace ranging from $10 to $50 depending on the type of lock you are looking for. It’s very important you make sure to replace your cabinet locks as soon as they are defective or no longer operate efficiently. You want to keep your classified documents, paperwork and files protected from theft. Sensitive information such as private patient files, family records or other confidential data needs to be secured and kept locked up. Any information that is left without any type of security can hurt your business and even your personal life.
