    Half Mortise Box Lock Measurement Diagram

    Economical Box Locks, with half mortise design, are used on chests and boxes with lift lids. Lock is mortised into interior of box front and strike attaches underneath lid. When closed, strike drops down into lock. 

    This is a very reasonably priced lock, as such locking mechanism is average, not as smooth as European made locks, yet is serviceable. Made in Asia

    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.

      Steel Half Mortise Box Lock, 1 inch Backset

      The box lock finished my box very well, giving it a professional look. I am very pleased with it. I learned I needed to be careful with the key. One lock was too tight and I happen to break the key.
