    Replacing-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.

  • For help measuring and selecting antique furniture locks, we recommend reading: What you need to know about selecting and replacing half mortise locks.

    Perfect Replacement

    I bought this lock as a replacement for a restoration of my grandfather's old wooden tool chest. It was an easy installation, looks good, and works perfectly. This is an excellent product that I would highly recommend.

    I was frustrated not being able to find what I thought should be a readily available lock for the tool chest I made. I discovered the Paxton site after 2 wrong choices and too much search time. The lock was perfect. The perfect size; made in England, not china and priced well.
