Cam locks – also known as cabinet or furniture locks – consist of a housing and a cylinder lock. On the back of the lock is an attached arm, or cam. The cam is either straight or hooked depending on the model. The cam ensures that the lock is opened or closed when the key is turned.
Depending on the model, the locks are attached from the inside using a nut or clip.
