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.
