    Half Mortise Box Lock Measurement Diagram

    Jewelry Box Locks are a great size for small boxes, silver chests and game cases. This lock is well made with a dependable lever mechanism.  The quality is evident. Key has decorative shape.

    These are half mortise type locks for lift lid furniture. This quality lock has a brass face plate, box and strike. Once installed, lock is fitted into a partial cut out in box interior. Strike attaches underneath surface of lid. When lid is closed, strike drops down into lock. Key turns two lever mechanism to secure lid providing a higher level of security than cheaper versions. Once in place, lock is hidden from exterior view. Made in England.

    The backset measurement is necessary if selecting a replacement lock:
    • If you have original lock: measure distance between top edge of 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 (where lock pin will be) to top edge of box.
    • The replacement lock's backset measurement must match location of keyhole in furniture.

    Very satisfied with the small lock and key - so hard to find and such good quality.

    Good hardware, great support

    First time buying this sort of thing, so I had a bit of learning to do. The responses with help were timely and valuable! I'd buy from Paxton again!

    Jewelry Case Lock and Key

    Years ago, I built several of of the jewelry cases featured in Woodsmith No. 46 (August 1986). It was a most satisfying project, so recently I decided I needed to build another. However, the original supplier referenced in the plans, no longer carried the locking hardware. But then searching the web, I found Paxton Hardware had a very similar product which filled the bill. Perfect size, great quality and competitive price, so the project is nearing completion. Thanks for a great product!
