Finding an exact match for an old lock is not always possible, as only a limited amount of sizes are now made.
Cabinet Drawer Locks are a traditional style used on both antique and vintage furniture. This half mortise style is suitable for drawers, desks and doors hinge right. It is well made with a heavy extruded brass plate with a steel box. The secure lever locking mechanism provides reliability.
Strikes are not necessary for half mortise locks and are therefore not included. Orders with multiples of the same cabinet drawer lock will be shipped keyed alike. Made in England.

I am pleased with the lock and it works well, however I am very disappointed that there is a manufacturer’s name engraved on the facing edge. I used the lock as a replacement on an antique desk I restored….the engraving is not appropriate with the purpose of the lock.
I needed a very specific size for an antique plantation desk I only found it here. Great quality and perfect fit. Just what I needed
The locks apear to be made of good quality material. They look good also I have ot installed ay of them yet.
Working on the chest for the locks
I bought these locks to put into a cabinet made in the 1800's. I had to modify the existing mortises to make them work, but I knew that in advance. I also fabricated striker plates. I was pleasantly surprised these locks were not Chinese, but made in England.
I ordered this lock based on the fit instructions on the website. The product was well-made, very precise, and most important it fit as described. I would order from Paxton again without hesitation.
