I got mine online at a lock shop, and yes, they are just cabinet locks. I also got a set from ACS. It was a NIGHTMARE trying to get three locks keyed the same (and expensive). Comparing the ACS locks with the ones from the lock shop, the only real difference was the key. The ACS key was a double cut key, the cadet lock, single cut. The ACS locks came with only two keys; the cabinet locks came with 2 keys for each lock (6 total).
The other consideration was that the bezel on the ACS locks is slightly different from the cabinet locks. This came into play when using the Aerosport Low Profile Handle. The trim ring is machined for the ACS locks and I needed to "massage" the trim to achieve a nice fit...
A nice thing about the locks I bought is that they have a weather cover in the key slot. When you remove the key, the hole is blocked by an internal "door" preventing water or dirt from entering the lock. The ACS does not have that feature.
