    Many sizes of locks were made years ago, only a few sizes are currently made.

    Antique Furniture Locks are a traditional half mortise design. They are great replacement locks due to their size, authentic appearance and quality construction. These locks have a brass face plate with steel box and brass bolt.  Lever mechanism provides easy access with the turn of a key. This classic style is a half mortise type. It is used on both drawers and doors.  Standing the test of time, this design has been used on furniture for a couple hundred years. Made in England.

    Install Considerations
    1. Strikes were rarely used with half mortise locks. Typically wood is notched to accept bolt. However if preferred a generic #4521 strike is available separately.
    2. When using on doors: select according to side door is hinged on. This lock is for cabinet doors hinged on left.
    3. When using on drawers: Keyholes are off-center requiring lock to be positioned accordingly.
    4. Lock installs into a partial cut out in furniture. In closed position, lock is not seen. 
    If replacing a lock: the backset measurement must be determined
    • 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 old lock not available, determine backset by measuring: distance from center of keyhole (where lock pin will be) to top edge of drawer or side edge of door.
    • The backset measurement of the replacement lock, must match backset measurement in original lock and/or keyhole location measurement in drawer or cabinet door.

    Half Morticed Locks

    Worked well. No strike plates were available for our installation so the wood was notched to receive the bolt.

    Excellent Lock

    Although I have not yet installed the small cabinet lock I purchased, I love the quality and smooth operation of the lock. It was exactly what I was looking for.
