    For my next project I need a transformer that is lockable. Im renovating a system for an office building that belongs to the hospital and Im concerned about untrained people or vandals messing with it.

    I dont see a way to lock the cast ones up. Kichler says thiers are lockable but how so ?

    Any others with a padlock or other lock type provision ?

    What are your thoughts about locking them up as long as I give thier landscapers a key (I trust her not to mess it up)

    I agree I think its a good idea to lock it up also in a commercial application like that and give 1 key to them and label and keep the other for yourself. I don't have a Kichler transformer handy or I would look for you. I assume it has 1 hole on the case and another on the door that align so a padlock can be used. Paul will tell us!

    Nightscapings are ready to accept a lock.

    That's it Mr. klkanders. The transformer cover and side have a hole that alows you to use a lock. I have yet to use it though.

    The Vista/Justin transformers have a lockable latch as do F/X.

    great thanks guys. I just feel safer with it locked at this location... its too public of a place. Had I originally done the job and prewire I would of used an inground trans stashed in one of the beds for security and astetics.

    Im kinda stuck on this one tho.
