Chicago Filing Cabinet Locks
Various filing cabinet lock kits we usually stock. These are aftermarket kits that retrofit many Hon and Steelcase cabinets with similar locks. Usually the only reason to have to replace the whole assemblies shown in the pictures below of the pop out style filing cabinet locks is if it got damaged in some way or cracked. The lock cylinder itself can be replaced if the housing is in good condition, and you simply have the problem of a jammed lock or key or if where the key goes in is worn out or damaged.
SRS 2194 Long Shell Pop Out Style Filing Cabinet Lock
SRS 2190 Short Shell Pop Out Style Filing Cabinet Lock (below) We have never actually seen the large W shaped spring shown used in a cabinet so do not be alarmed if that is not in your cabinet.
This lock is used on Hon and Global Style Filing Cabinets. The bar that attaches to the lock loops (with plier force) around the tab of the locking bar that lifts up or down to lock/unlock the cabinet. Some cabinets come without the lock cylinder and a small "double D" tab of metal that can be knocked out and this lock installed. If you remove (or open the top drawer as far as possible) and find a metal bar along the inside right wall that you can move up and down with your hand that is the locking bar for the drawers. There are two different style of this lock (two different bars) and it depends on the manufacturer and date of manufacture.
