Cam Lock help needed

I bought a video game machine recently at a storage unit auction and it has a cam lock. Can someone provide some info on how to remove this cam cylinder in order to replace it with a new one. Having to replace because there is no key to the machine. Thanks for your assistance!

If the lock has a number on the front of it, then call your local locksmith shop, and give them the number. For only a couple of bucks, they might be able to give you the key to it.

Just a suggestion

Jack, a key by code will most definatly be more than "a couple of bucks"... prices may very...

First you need to get into the cabinet; Once open the body of the lock will be held in place by a nut or a clip.

The most direct way is to pick it. A locksmith can do it for you. Bring it to his shop to minimize costs.

If you want to try other methods....

Look for a panel you can remove (by removing the screws) that will put you within arm's length of the lock. Don't forget the bottom panels.

Force the lock with a large screw driver and pliers. Be prepared to fix the damage, possibly lots of damage.

Good luck. I'd take it to a locksmith if I were you.

Usually a big nut on the back. Crescent wrench.
