    Choosing Surface Locks

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

    If replacing a lock:

    • If you have old lock: measure distance between selvedge-edge (edge where bolt shoots through lock) to lock pin in center of keyhole. This measurement is known as the backset. 
    • If original lock is not available, determine backset by measuring: distance from center of keyhole to edge of cabinet door. 
    • The replacement lock's backset measurement must match location of keyhole in furniture.

    Good small lock for cabinets. I recommend this company for their help also.

    Great company to help and direct you to the right part.

    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.
