Full Mortise Locks are a low profile design. Once installed only brass selvedge and keyhole are visible. The result is a smooth wood surface, surrounding the lock body. German engineering and smooth action combine producing this well-made, dependable lock. Made in Germany.

Full Mortise Locks have three keyhole positions. This unique mechanism can be used on either left doors, right doors or drawers. Keyholes are offset requiring care when positioning lock in furniture. When installing: Full Mortise Locks are fitted into a pocket, carved in drawer top or door side. Strikes not necessary and rarely used. If preferred generic strikes are available.

desk lock

The lock was as described and I was prepared and made the necessary modification to use it in an old secretary's desk. It would have been nice if I could have purchased a lock with the same dimensions as the old one, however this is a very satisfactory solution.

Not Bad

I needed various parts for restoring a 1920's era secretary, hinges, locks, lid stays etc., that has been in the family since it was new and that was going to be passed on to the next generation. I Googled and found Paxton. I bought a variety of mortised locks, some hinges and escutcheons and was very pleased with the product, the professional nature of the service and will ultimately be purchasing more form Paxton.
