Hi guys, my name is Darrel, I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk and we are doing product reviews today. And the product that I have here in front of me is the 1363 Lowe and Fletcher cam lock.
It's obviously designed for cabinets and so forth. There's nothing really fantastic that we can say much about cam locks. The idea of this video is to give you some bit more information that perhaps a photo or a bit of description doesn't really give you, and sometimes it's nice to see it relative to the flesh and somebody around it and so forth. So you can get yourself sort of idea or perspective.
So let's have a look at what we've got here. This particular lock has a turning circle of 180 degrees so if I was to turn it there you can see there and you can take the key out in that direction and you can also take the key out in that direction as well. So this particular Cam Lock has a 180 degree turn. If you thinking of replacing it, it won't come out at 90. It has to go the complete 180 there like that all right.
It's part of the Lowe and Fletcher 92 series range. If I was to pull that out there, if you're thinking that this is something you want to be replacing guys, this is what you'll be looking for here. Don't know if you can zoom in on that and you will also see that there is a number, it's a little distinct number sitting at the bottom there. And if this is something that you're trying to replace then this is what you will see on the outside.
So let me get some measurements of that face plate there so you can get yourselves some sort of idea of perspective. I'll use the Vernier Gauge on that. Zero that in, okay. So it's more or less square but that there has a diameter there of 23.8 millimetres, okay? So as near as damn it, 24 millimetres. And I would suggest it's the same as well this way, yeah. So it's 24 by 24 millimetres all the way round okay, so that's quite important. On the back, now this particular type is a nut fixing and I don't know if you can zoom in there enough Lee, but you see that it's got a flat piece at the top and a flat piece at the bottom. So the shape of your hole is going to be round, but it's going to have a flat piece at the top or or flat piece at the bottom. That's assuming it's sitting like that. It may be sitting like that. It depends on the manufacturer who fitted this or whether or not you're fitting it somewhere new.
So what we need to establish now is this plate here, again this is standard. It comes standard with this cam on it. This cam it can be twisted, it can be bent, it can be to do shaped whatever shape that suits you. And there is a circlip there that's holding it into place. You need to know how thick a material that this particular cam lock will go into, so it's obviously a nut fixing there.
So really that's the thickness there, so more designed for metal type cupboards and lockers and so forth as opposed to something made out of wood. So if I get that measurement just inside there, I can give you an idea of how thick. We're looking in reality, we're looking there at round about 4 millimetres. So the substrate, the wall you're going to fix this to is going to be roughly round about 4 millimetres or less.
So there you go guys. Like I said there's not much to really say about this particular range of Cam Lock save and except it comes standard with two keys. Made by Lowe and Fletcher, available on LocksOnline's website. So if you're thinking that this is the one for you, come on we'd really appreciate it if you'd consider buying it from us.
But in the meantime this is enough from me, from Darrel, take care and come back and visit us real soon. Take care now. Bye-bye.
