I used this lock to repair a broken file cabinet. Worked perfectly with the existing hardware on the cabinet.

It was quite a bit of work to make it work! Fortunately, I work in a office furniture company and obtained a few tips or tricks that helped me install it easier.

This lock system did take a bit of effort to get it to work since it is not designed for a framed cabinet, however it does do work as intended. It would be nice to see a similar product for a framed cabinet.

The instructions were poor, at best. The measurements should be correlated from the slide bar location, and not the outside of the cabinet. I figured everything out, but it would have been a lot clearer. You advertise these locks to go on any type of cabinet, but the instructions are for European type cases, and not framed cases, as I had made. I gave the product a good rating, based on how excellent it worked once installed properly.

Didn't come with instructions or screws to attach the lock to the drawer front. Luckily I only had to replace the lock itself, and did find other screws to fit.

Missing items
Upon receipt of three (3) Front Mount Gang Lock items 88618, two of the three packages did not contain the Lockbar Clip and one did not contain the lock bezel. Although step no. 7 in the online mounting instructions say to install drawer clips to drawer sides using the roundhead screws provided, none of the the three packages contained any screws. Telephoned Rockler and awaiting receipt of missing pieces. Two stars for this product is in regards to the missing pieces in the sealed packages, not the functionality of the product which remains to be tested.

It's nice that you only need to open one lock and all three drawers open.

In process of building a filing cabinet and require a locking feature that is simple and unobtrusive. Would have liked to have a selection of lock finishes other than bright brass however.

What is a gang lock?
A shopper on May 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This lock works really well. Just used this for the first time. It locks multiple drawers with one lock set. Takes a little bit of setup. But works really well for an application where you do not want a lock per drawer. There is adjustment for the different height drawers. I would recommend ordering the setup and building the cabinet to fit this hardware. It may be a challenge to setup for this lock setup on a existing cabinet depending on your clearances and style / rail widths.
What is a gang lock and what purpose does it surve?
Annita on Jan 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Gang Lock means you can lock more than one drawer with only one Key lock. The photo shows a rod that is usually fitted in a dado pocket on the side of a case. you can attach pins at any point on the rod to match up with a drawer you want to lock. I purchased two sets so that I could lock 5 drawers narrow drawers using only the one rod.
Can this be installed on a metal desk?
Kay T on Sep 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Normally the vertical bar is located in a groove to inset it into the wood sides of the cabinet with the surface where the pins are located flush with the inside of the cabinet. The bar is free to move up and down and is captured in place with retainers. If you have sufficient distance between the outer sides of your drawers and the inside of the metal cabinet you may be able to make a track perhaps from wood for the bar to slide in and fasten the track to the inside wall of the metal cabinet. Bye the way, the gang lock worked very well in my cabinet. Let me know if there is anything else I can clarify.
