  • Full Mortise Locks are produced to quality standards. Engineered and made in Germany, these locks offer smooth reliable action. Use on drawers and doors. Full mortise locks have a combination lock mechanism with two key positions. This enables lock to secure a left door, right door or drawer. Location of keyhole is offset requiring care when positioning lock in furniture. 

    When installing: lock fits into pocket in drawer top or door edge. Once installed only selvedge and keyhole are exposed.  Strikes not necessary and rarely used. If preferred generic strikes are available.


    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.

    Cabinet Lock

    The lock works perfectly, unfortunately, the faceplate, strike plate and key does not come in oil rubbed bronze and they key is plated, so I was unable to age the finish.
