Furniture Door Locks  have an easy to install, surface mount design. No mortising is necessary, just attach lock to interior of door with screws. Surface Locks are reversible.  Use on either left or right hand doors, as bolt exits from either side of lock. 

Furniture Door Locks are brass, with a brass-plate bolt steel box and tumbler action. A strike is unnecessary, therefore not included. Made In England.

Replacing Surface 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.

For help measuring and selecting full mortise locks, we recommend reading: How to select, measure and install full mortise cabinet locks.

Based on 5 reviews

EXACTLY like the original hardware on a 1966 Morgan 4/4 glovebox lock. High quality and Made in England.

Cabinet lock

Excellent replacement lock. Was better than original.

replacement of antique hardware

The web site is great. The short tutorials on the hardware, measurements, key shapes, and mechanisms is vital for a do it yourselfers like me. The site prevented me from making mistakes that usually plague my redo projects.

Paxton a staple

I have ordered from Paxton before the internet and they have been and still are a reliable source. Their detailed description takes the guessing out of ordering.

Lock and Key

These were the perfect match to work for our antique armoire we were restoring. We made a few adjustments but they worked out very well. We had thought we would originally try to find vintage ones to restore the armoire but it was impossible to find three to work for the doors. So we were very satisfied with the end results.
