Resistance to Attack and Key Control Our S line showcase and cabinet locks offer direct drive pin technology and are designed to offer a high level of physical security. The cylinder locking mechanism is uniquely designed to offer smooth operation and long life. It is nearly impossible to pick these locks using standard techniques. We can register your keys and maintain your key plans by store, retail department, showcase/cabinets, or office and we maintain a historical database of key numbers. For security reasons, duplication of S keys for locks purchased originally from Kenstan can only be obtained through Kenstan with an authorized signature. Key blanks are never sold.
Key Retaining Lock Function
The S line standard operation is a key retaining function (captive), which means that the operating key can be removed in the locked position only; therefore, the lock cannot be accidentally left in the open/unlocked position.
Non-Key Retaining Lock Function
Some S Cam locks can also be supplied as non-key retaining (non-captive), which allows the key to be removed in both the locked and unlocked position.
Designer Note: For true captive operation, the use of our captive key locks must be coordinated with sliding door showcase design. The use of non by-passing sliding doors is recommended to restrict door movement and ensure key removal only when the doors are in the secure position.
