I contacted Husky and they sent me keys for the cabinets but still
drawers will not unlock, so beleive locks to be broken to some
degree(some draws lock and open and others are just permanently
locked), Is there a way to disengage or gut the lock system alltogether
without the need for expensive locksmith tools??? what are my options?
Lock cylinders or the pins might be gummed up,frozen or rusted;spray with
some penetrating oil.
(not WD-40,Water-Displacement fliud)
If that loosens them up,then flush with a solvent to clear out the oil,then
lube with dry graphite.Otherwise the oil will gum up the cylinders/pins
Takes a little knowledge to use them though.....
I would just take a claw hammer and drive the claw end into the lock
where it meets the cabinet...you should be able to bust out the lock
without completely destroying the cabinet front...straighten out the
metal with a hammer, pliers whatever....then coat with some rustoleum
paint........good as new
That is what I would do also.. BUT I would start with an 1/8 inch bit
CENTERED... then increase the bit size up to 1/4 inch...which should
be all that is needed IF CENTERED...that would drill out the screw
that holds the locking cam on the rear of the cyclinder .
Take care to center the initial hole... .
I own 4 of these or similar units...NONE of the locks on any of the
drawers still have the cams still attached..
