Cam locks are used for a variety of applications the most notable being making filling cabinet and mailbox locks among other security OEM applications. Cam locks are available in different lengths. They are also available in a number of tailpieces or cams to interface with other locking mechanisms. Since there are very many cam options, it is important to choose cam locks depending on your application and preferences i.e. straight, hooked or offset tailpieces. It is also worth noting that cam locks can rotate in any direction i.e. Clockwise or counter-clockwise. The degree of rotation is however limited i.e. 90 to 180 degrees depending on tailpiece mechanisms among other factors.
