Can Gamma Slide Locks directly replace (or cross) 3M’s now discontinued Slim Locks?  Yes.

We’ve been getting that question a lot lately and wanted to make the answer easily accessible, (hence the reason for this blog post).  To go a step further we’ve put together a small table below that lists which Gamma Slide Lock models directly replaces the different Slim Lock models.

More importantly than Gamma Slide Locks being able to replace slim locks however are the facts that a Gamma Slide Lock is slimmer than a slim lock while also being lighter and easier to install. Gamma Slide Locks are designed to telecom industry standards and have AT&T approval, (CEQ numbers are also listed below), and they excel at weatherproofing with an IP68 rating.
