  • Jewelry Box Locks are a dependable 2 lever design.  Small size is ideal for jewelry boxes, silver chests and game cases. These hard working brass locks are made in England. Key has decorative shape.

    Jewelry box locks are a half mortise type. Use on boxes with lift lids. Lock mounts into cut out indentation inside box. Strike attaches underneath surface of lid. Once installed, lock is only visible from box interiors.   Strike drops down into lock when lid is closed. 


    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.
