    Fitting Furniture Keys

    Replacing keys for an existing lock is difficult

    • Key bits, also known as blades, often require a specific cut to fit a lock. Determining this cut is complex. If key bit is not cut correctly, it will not engage lock mechanism.
    • Unfortunately knowing the manufacturer and model number of the lock does not help in locating a key to fit an antique lock.
    • Cutting the bit/blade, to turn the lock mechanism, often requires the skills of a locksmith.

    Before choosing a key blank:

    • Determine lock-pin diameter This measurement is critical as key-barrel must slide over lock pin.
    • The key-bit must be sized correctly to move the lock-bolt .

    Profile of key-bit varies between locks. 

    • Some locks are easily turned with a simple un-notched blade
    • Other locks require a key bit with one notch to lock or unlock
    • Many locks require a key cut with 2 notches: one notch locks the lock the other notch unlocks the lock
    • Some locks, made with spring-loaded levers, also require 2 notches however they also must be different sizes. This type of key is difficult to reproduce

    Selecting Keyhole Covers - Escutcheons
    For accurate fit:

    • Measure keyhole height in keyhole cover
    • Measure key-end height, height of key-bit
    • Compare above determined measurements, to interior keyhole measurements, of the desired keyhole cover

    The keys worked!

    The keys worked right away, on drawer locks that hadn’t been used in a hundred years.
