    Full Mortise Lock Measurement Diagram

    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.

    Install Considerations
    1. Use on doors hinged on right.
    2. Lock fits into cut out pocket in top-edge of drawer or side-edge off door.  Once installed only brass selvedge and keyhole are exposed. 
    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 would 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.

      Replacement Lock

      Quality is good, I restore antique furniture. Three old lock was missing, I was able to install this one with minimum problems.

      Fits perfectly.

      This lock fits perfectly thanks to Paxton's informative website (it's amazing how many companies don't show measurements of their products). It completes a nice piece of furniture I bought used that just needed a little touching up.
