Find The Location for the Lock

Choose a location for the lock. A location higher on the filing cabinet door will hinder the top edge of the drawer from being pried open. With that in mind, choose a location about one inch below the top lip of the drawer.

Install the Lock

To install the filing cabinet lock, insert the lock cylinder into the knockout hole. When inserting the lock cylinder into the hole, make sure that the bolt on the cylinder is facing up. Once the lock cylinder is in place, insert the key into the cylinder and turn the key clockwise then slide the retaining clip over to the cylinder flush. Put the linkage piece into the hole of the bolt to lock the bolt in place.

Replace the Top Drawer

After installing the lock, replace the top drawer of the cabinet. Test the lock and make sure that it is working before you lock it.
