Drop In Locks with 3/4" backset, are authentic replacements for furniture made in the 1900's. Use on drawers and doors hinged on the right. Designed to drop into a pocket cut by a router or machine. Once installed lock should fit tightly. It will be encased with wood on both sides only selvedge edge will show. 

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.

Replacing Full 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.
