File Locking Bar

File Cabinet locks are an excellent way to secure your file cabinet contents. HIPAA compliance, company policy and just plain common sense dictate that you lock up important documents.

Lock your file cabinet. The simple to use, easy to install bar securely fastens to the frame next to the drawers on the front of your file cabinet (minimum 12" frame required).

These file cabinet locks can provide a second layer of security to those units with built-in locks or, if your keys are lost, these bars can provide an easy lock replacement system without having to replace the entire cabinet.

  • File cabinet not included
  • This File Cabinet Lock Bar requires a padlock.
  • Padlock is NOT included unless you choose a specific padlock when adding the File Cabinet Lock to the cart. You may also order compatible locks in the Accessories section. If using your own padlock, it must have a minimum ¼" diameter shackle.
ACCESSORIES

The padlocks listed below all work with our File Locking Bars. If you are planning on using your own padlock, we recommend using a padlock with at least a 14" thick shackle to maintain the security of the bar. 1st-in-padlocks.com carries a large selection of locks from American Lock, Masterlock, and ABUS if none of these padlocks fit your needs.
