Half Mortise Box Lock Measurement Diagram

This Half Mortise Lock has a rounded plate. This style was popular on oak furniture in the early 1900's.  It was widely used on drawers and doors hinged on right. The polished steel construction and light weight is authentic. This "machine" lock easily installs in a mortise cut by a router or machinery. The lock has an angled selvedge edge seen on many furniture pieces from this time frame. Strike not included as not required.

This is a very reasonably priced lock, as such: locking mechanism is average, not as smooth as finer made brass locks, yet is serviceable. Made in Asia. If using on doors please select according to side door is hinged on.

Replacing Half Mortise 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.

I bought an antique highboy that was missing two of the hinges and bought replacements from Paxton and they fit perfectly. Thank you, Paxton!
