I’m building a cabinet with a tambour top. As an FYI, I have ordered a pre-made tambour top that I will need to install. I also need to put a secure lock on this top.

The only tambour lock I can locate, so far, is the one sold by Rockler. The reviews on that lock are not very good. Does anyone know where I could locate a better lock? My goggle search has not been very helpful.

Good luck,
