How do camlocks work?
Camlocks require a key or tool to rotate the cam within a cam lock base. The base unit comprises of the housing and the barrel. As the cam is rotated within the base, it locks and unlocks. This mechanism creates a simple but versatile latch-type locking system that works as a secure system for doors, drawers and more.
