Are those medeco cam locks?

Sometimes Medeco locks are used to protect valuable assets:

The resolution isn't really great, but are those Medeco cam locks?

Spam under lock and key? Is that Hawaii?

Yes, they sure look like Medeco cam locks to me.

I third, those are most definitely Medeco cams.

As an Australian, I don't think I could dream up a stranger supermarket item to have such a theft problem. We of course do have the whole kangaroo carcasses kept in the freezers with the grid mesh doors securing them.

Spam is staggeringly popular in Hawaii.

Re: Are those medeco cam locks?

I think the issue is that the Spam is an easily fenced item in Hawaii, thus it is a target for theft. Since it's a hassle for both staff and customers to conduct a sale if the Spam is under lock and key, it must be a serious problem for them to go to that kind of effort to secure it. If Spam is a black market commodity, they may have to become serious about securing it.

The shelf locks may also be part of a generic system, perhaps they're used for locking up higher value items such as razors and pharmaceutical products, so it's reasonable that they would use high security locks for this application.
