Lock Bypass Feature

How do I use the drawer lock bypass?

The file drawer lock bypass lever is designed to allow access to certain drawers while others remain locked. If one or more of the drawers will not lock, check the lock bypass lever. The bypass lever needs to be in the deactivated position in order for the drawer to lock.
