    Full Mortise Lock Measurement Diagram

    Drop In Locks  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.

    Drop in lock for writing desk

    The lock fit perfectly in the mortise. I couldn’t have purchased a better replacement.

    Lock fit perfectly

    The drop in lock fit the existing secretary drop desk but I am concerned that the lock bolt easily pushes back down without the key. This may cause the desk to drop on its own

    Drop-in Locks

    I am restoring a secretary that is about 100 yrs. old. The locks matched the old ones very well.
