    We recommend reading: Selecting and replacing half mortise locks.

    Many lock sizes were made years ago. Few sizes are now made. Replacing old locks often requires cabinet work.

    Antique Drawer Locks are a traditional design used on vintage furniture. These half mortise locks are for drawers and desk lids.   Can be used on cabinet doors hinged on right.  Due to location of keyhole, cannot be used on doors hinged left. 

    These drawer locks have a secure lever locking mechanism. They are hard working reproductions made with a heavy extruded brass plate and steel box.Cabinet Drawer Lock - Backset: Distance to pin is 3/4"

    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.

    Replacing Half Mortise Locks

    Keyhole location measurement is critical. Replacement lock-keyhole-location must match location of keyhole in furniture.

    To measure: easiest to measure old lock, if you have it:

    • Lock Keyhole Location: distance between selvedge-edge - where bolt shoots through, to lock pin. This measurement is known as the backset.
    • Furniture Keyhole Cutout Location: distance between furniture-edge to estimated location of lock pin in furniture keyhole.
