I am thinking of buying rtacabinetstore cabinets for my kitchen. They use plastic cam-locks. I put together a homestyle kitchen island using metal cam-locks which I decided to use in my future master walk-in closet instead. It has been two years and daily abuse and I am very pleased with how sturdy the metal cam-lock system has turned out. Does anyone know a source for metal cams?

I would like to switch the plastic ones for metal. My house value at this point in time does not allow for expensive cabinets. And seeing how my flat pack homestyle kitchen island turned out I am okay with cam-locks but prefer the metal ones.

Anyone know a source for these? Thanks in advance if you can help.

RE: Cam-locks

Try Rockler hardware - their service is good, and their range of stuff is amazing.

RE: Cam-locks

I bought my cabs from Scherr's, and they used metal camlocks of seemingly very high quality; however, I cannot remember the brand. They are very friendly -- you could try giving them a call and asking whose camlocks they use.
