Cabinet Drawer Locks are a traditional design used on antique and vintage furniture. These half mortise style 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"
