Default Replacement lock for bulletin board.

I’m trying to find replacement cylinders like this.
It is called an enclosed bulletin board... super simple cylinder... don't think a mailbox cylinder will work, wanted to have one before I drilled out the lost one.

Thanks,
Pete

Looks like a simple cam lock you can get at Home Depot

Right? Like the mail-box locks?... I'm not so sure it's the same size hole... I'm thinking I'll need to pull the old one and bring it with me.

Found it. Cam lock is the correct thing. Just need to get the correct depth. Ha! Thanks!

Looks like it will be either a 5/8"or 7/8". Most come with multiple cams to allow for offsets and such. Should run under $10.

Yeah. It's a pretty shallow box... I'll go there tomorrow and drill it out to get one (there are 3)... then I'll order it. Thanks again guys.

Same thing as a cabinet lock. Big box stores and local hardware stores carry them, in various diameters and depths.

If all three are the same key you might try something different. Those cams are not that strong. If the cabinet is sturdy enough, a flat screwdriver just above and just below the lock will pry the door open pretty easily. The cam can be straightened and reused. Your local locksmith can make a key for it and then you are good to go with the other two.

Did you check on top of the box to see if the key is there?
