There is a lock on a cabinet in my garage that has been locked since I moved in. A friend of mine said that it looks like a "cam lock" but I'm not sure what that means. I have a key that says "Hudson" on it that fits in the lock but won't turn it. Does anyone know if one of the keys in the 11 key package will bump this lock? I've not received mine yet so I can't just test it. Any help would be appreciated.

I believe that most of the Hudson cabinet locks were wafer locks, which can not be bumped. Very quick picks, though.

I also tried to bump this type of lock once and there was no success. I think Hudson Cabinet Locks are very tricky or impossible to bump but may be picked.
