What should we pay attention to when buying a lock?

- Sep 29, 2019-

Many customers will go to the building materials market to buy a lock for their furniture cabinets, most of them rely on the feeling that they only care about the style of the locks and the coordination of their own cabinets, and whether the price is high, but few people pay attention to the furniture brand and origin of the lock.


The cost of purchasing locks in home decoration is only 2-3 percent of the cost of other materials. Although the ratio is small, it is related to your basic safety and cannot be ignored.


There are many types of locks. The locks installed on the lockers can be divided into mechanical locks, RFID smart locks, touch keypad locks, etc., which provide consumers with a wide choice, but also bring some trouble.


The following points should be noted when selecting locks:

1. Compared with the weight of the lock, the heavier the lock core is, the thicker the material is and the more wear-resistant it is. On the contrary, the material is thin and easy to be damaged.

2. Watch the surface smoothness of the lock, whether it is delicate and smooth, without spots.

3. Buy locks with high brand reputation as far as possible to support quality and durability.

4. Open repeatedly to verify the sensitivity of the core spring.

Installation of locks should wait for the paint to be thoroughly air-dried, otherwise, the volatiles of the paint and the coating on the surface of the locks will produce chemical reaction, which will lead to fading and mottling and affect the visual effect.
