Are HAPP coin door locks an odd size (cam length)??
« on: June 17, 2022, 11:37:56 AM »
I'm pretty sure I've tried every home depot cabinet lock and they do not fit- Either the door has about 1/4" of open/close play, or the cam is too short and will not lock at all.
Does anyone know if this is a custom size, or what size I should be using?

bend the cam.

i do this daily...on the door. ;D

seriously...none of them ever go on and shut dead flush. some end up with 3/4+ of an inch in play...when i'm done, zero.

can't help if the cam is too short.

Yeah it's a stupid pain in the ass.  Bend the cam if you can.
I agree with Klassic.

i had a crap closing door on a bally rolling stones yesterday (game i didn't go thru). someone wanted internal
pics of the cabinet (guy wanted to see if had any signs of ever being wet, or dirty...40 year old game ;D)

well, took a 45 second video, and missed me tweaking the cam...lol. so cut into before vs after:
