IKEA Galant File Cabinet 3-dial lock - It will lock you out of your cabinet.
I have 2 brand new Galant fine cabinets.They were professionally assembled.
I set both cabinets to the same combination. I tested 1 cabinet once and it worked fine. After several days of using the cabinets without locking them, I finally had a need to lock them. But the next day when I tried to open them, the combination wouldn't work.
The combination is my birthday so I'm not forgetting the number. Like other people, I called IKEA and they simply said bring the file cabinets to the store. There's no way I can lift a 3 drawer full file cabinet. And if I hire someone to move it for me, I could potentially purchase a new cabinet with the same amount of money.
I wish I had done some research before purchasing these.
I see many people have had the same issue with these cabinets.So why are they still available for purchase?!
