Replacing a File Cabinet Lock
If you absolutely can’t wait a few days, then your best option is to call a local locksmith and see if they might be able to help. Be sure and tell them the brand of the file cabinet and ask if they’re familiar with that brand. And/or if they have had success opening them without destroying the lock. The other option is to drill out the lock core yourself and hope that you can get the lock to release and open the cabinet.
