The locker is electric. Just pass current to it via a relay. There are a couple of write-ups on this on the web.

and what will i have to do in order for the locker to work? i mean does it activate with air? like mi arb in the back? o is it by switch 12 volt?As already mentioned, simply connect it to a switch with 12v on it. There is a sensor that tells it when it is locked also, you may or may not want to use that.

Yes, any switch will work. You preferably want one that lights up if you are not going to use the locker sensor to throw a light. Wire one side of the locker to ground and the other to 12v from the switch. You'll most probably at least want to order a connector for the locker, or just cut the existing one off and connect your wires.
