Illinois Lock has released a new adapter called RapidCam that can replace the flat, steel tab used on traditional cam locks. The steel cam is replaced with a glass-filled, Nylon 66, spring-loaded latch that features an angled design. This means when in locked position with a door open, the latch will simply move down and then back up if the door is accidentally slammed shut, avoiding damage to the cabinet and bending of the cam. An additional, time-saving benefit of the new locks is the ability to simply push on a coin door to close and lock it.
The RapidCam is available in two models: RapidCam315 (with a .315 cam boss and M4-0.7 x 20mm attachment screw) and RapidCam350 (with a .350 cam boss and 1/4-28 x .750 attachment screw). All stock RapidCams are supplied with the latch, attachment screw and spring-loaded base, as well as three tips. These include a flush tip, a 1/8 offset and a 1/4 offset. RapidCams can also be ordered with the desired tip installed.
RapidCam adapters convert a wide variety of Illinois Lock cam locks, E901 electronic cam locks, handles and key-less latches. For more information on RapidCam, visit www.illinoislock.com/rapidcam or contact Illinois Lock Company at 847-537-1800, email [email protected].
