Adapter for Lock Cylinders

An adapter to provide a vertical configuration of cam mounting holes to a horizontal configuration. This allows the installation of MEDICO (Medico Security Locks, Inc.) lock cylin (having a vertical hole configuration) into existing electrical key stations (requiring a horizontal hole configuration).

Adapter 10 replaces the factory installed cam on cylinder lock 11. Slot 12 in adapter 10 fits on cam driver 13 of cylinder 11. Adapter 10 is secured to lock 11 using the existing holes of cam driver 13 and using screws which extend through mounting holes 14 provided in adapter 10. Holes 15, located on an axis at right angles to holes 14, are located and tapped in adapter 10. Holes 15 are now used to mount cam driver 13 to the electrical key station system.
