Tambor Locks
I was very pleased with the locks. They were perfect for my application. I used four for locking lids and doors on two kiosk units to be used at church for children's security check in and out procedures. I especially was pleased to have all four locks keyed the same. Cheers, Petej....

Right lock for the job
I took a piano bench and cut the legs down to make a table close to the floor so my wife could put her legs under it and sit on the floor. When she went to move the piano bench table, the top would open, so she asked me to put a lock on it to be able to pick it up and move around. I went on line to find a lock that would be compatible. I adapted the flipper lock for the job and it works fine.

I am very satisfied with the locks. Following instructions, it was a snap to install them on two jewelry boxes. I can truly recommend the product.

This was the exact lock that I was looking for. It replaced the one at my office that no one could find the key to. It to me longer to open the box than it did to put in on. Now my personal belongings are secure.

Tambour lock
This lock works fine but is not as robust as I would like. Also it leaves no room for adjustment.

The install was easy, took about 20 -30 minutes. THe only problem was it did not come with the screws that the instructions say are included. This was not a big problem for the lock as the screws are hidden, but the latch is black and I did not have any black headed screws. I will now need to touch up the screw heads that are showing.

The tambor lock was the only type I could use for the cabinet I was building, however, it failed to hold the lid closed when stressed. I will have to consider other means of securing the lid.

I used this on a box with a locking lid. I choose this style of lock for added security on the project. Unfortunatly, when the lid was really pulled on, like someone really wanting to get into the box, the cam would shift over and the lid would pop open. I am quite disappointed in the actual secutiry of this lock and am now looking for a replacement, that hopefully will fit the hole that I have already drilled for this lock.

Need a lock for a lid on a hope chest. Don't want to use a hasp and padlock. This looks cleaner and more subtle.

I wanted a lock that would keep a piano bench lid shut. I hope this will work, because I have tried other methods and I don't want to go to a hasp latch.

can the hook be turned the other direction?
Jo Ann S on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do believe the hook can be rotated or flipped, but be aware; it does have a slight bend back, so if you flip it, it will bend in a little closer to the key instead. Usually just means a slight adjustment on the cut for the slot, but it all depends on the type of installation you are doing.
Can I special order locks that are keyed different?
Tracey H on Sep 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can't order them specially keyed, but the cylinder is removable so you could probably get a locksmith to rekey it for you
A shopper on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These locks are keyed alike.
need several locks, can you get them keyed the same?
David V on Apr 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this lock is a keyed alike lock. All will be keyed the same.
Does it come in different finish ?
A shopper on Apr 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not as far as I saw. I would love to see it in a few more finishes though (ie. nickel, black, ORB, etc). This is the only side locking cabinet door lock I could find.
