Applications of OEM Locks

Usually, a unique key unlocks OEM locks, although other locking/unlocking options are also commonly used. OEM locks can be used within offices, at stores, or in other public locations where maximum protection is desired. They are often utilized for displays or showcases of valuable items.

Common retail applications for OEM locks include:

  • Jewelry Cases
  • Cosmetic Cases
  • Cigarette Cases
  • Camera Cases
  • Watch Cabinets
  • Trophy Cases
  • Drug Cabinets
  • Fine China Cabinets
  • Filing Cabinets
  • Other enclosures holding and/or displaying expensive commodities, such as electrical appliances and audio-visual equipment.

OEM locks also can be used for personal items, such as luggage, motorcycles, and firearm enclosures.

OEM Lock Design and Customization

OEM lock manufacturers offer flexibility in design so that the appropriate lock is provided for each application and can meet specific requirements. Zinc plated steel, brass, die-cast alloy, plastic, and polyamide are all available OEM lock materials, depending on specific requirements.

Benefits of Using OEM Locks

The intent of an Original Equipment Manufacturer is to manufacture parts and products for other companies, who can then market such products under their own brand name. Through growth in facility size and production input, in addition to contractual bulk purchasing, an OEM can significantly bring down the cost of production, thus saving money for the purchasing companies. Another obvious perk of an OEM is a company’s ability to obtain needed parts without having to actually own and operate a whole factory, as well as the reliability and security OEMs offer. This is especially important for locks. Millions of key combinations are possible for each OEM lock, ensuring that important and valuable items stay safe from theft or damage.

Types of OEM Locks

There are many types of custom and standard OEM locks, including:

  • Case Locks
  • Console Locks
  • Push-Button Locks
  • Pin-Tumbler Locks
  • Octagon Locks
  • Quarter Turn Locks
  • Tubular Locks
