What Should We Pay Attention to When Choosing Cam Locks?

Cam locks, as common industrial locks, are a type of latch consisting of a base and a cam, which provides security for valuable items. The main principle of cam locks is that when the key is inserted into the lock core, the lock cylinder is rotated 90 to 180 degrees under the rotation of the key, thus realizing the unlocking and locking.
