Mastered Can Locks
All cam locks are not mastered for virtually all cam lock series; there is an unmastered option. However, it is far more common for the lock series to be mastered. Therefore mastered locks, there is an optional master key available. In other words, master keys will open all the locks in a particular series. Master keys are used to open a locked door without the patron key for security reasons or when a key is lost.
Locker key numbers are usually on the key and the cylinder face of the locks. Occasionally the number is on the side of the barrel. Consequently, there are cam locks with only a number on the key. Therefore do not buy locks of this type if you lose the keys; there is no way of replacing the keys. Therefore replacement locker keys are cut using the key number on the key, or cyLocker keys are cut using the code on the key or the cylinder. Key and cylinder codes are identical numbers.
Cam Lock numbering
Cam locks are usually supplied with random numbers from a series of numbers which can be as large as 2000. However, there are times when you may need to order specific codes, for example, when you need the same key to open two doors on a locker. The term for this is matching locks, where two or more locks have the same key number.
Cam lock size
There are two common sizes of lock the Lowe and Fletcher standard cam lock and the ASSA cam lock, which is larger. As a result, these locks are not interchangeable.
This is the bar that swings down to lock the locker door. As a result of door sizes and locker design, there are thousands of different cams available. Therefore variations include length, joggles and notches
