    Following on from the dust-proofing a Detolf thread - I just wanted to ask a question I've been meaning to for a while...

    Has anyone managed to lock their cabinets?

    I thought about some locks like in the jewellers shops cabinets, but haven't found a decent supplier as yet?

    Would they even work?

    Any thoughts?

    If you're worried about the occasional visitor to your home, locks will help. If you're worried about a break-in, no lock on a glass case will stop a determined thief.

    I want desperately to pick up some of these cases. An IKEA recently opened close to two hours from here. Once I can save enough I intend to buy a few or so.

    well if your worried about kids getting into the cabinet. I Took the door handle hook and turned it inside. That way there is no handle to open the door. Only draw back is you need to use your fingernail to open the door or something flat.
    good luck on the lock.

    I have dual motivation really...

    My son will soon be crawling, then walking and touching and breaking.......

    Also, I'm soon to be opening a (non-prop/sci-fi) gallery and will be using a couple of these cabinets to display some smaller items in.

    I could do with locking them to stop people who look with their hands rather than their eyes.

    Hey, I finally found a lock that would fit.

    It [​IMG]doesn't need drilling, but you do have to cut a slot into the base or top.
