Furniture Door Locks  have an easy to install, surface mount design. No mortising is necessary, just attach lock to interior of door with screws. Surface Locks are reversible.  Use on either left or right hand doors, as bolt exits from either side of lock. 

Furniture Door Locks are brass, with a brass-plate bolt steel box and tumbler action. A strike is unnecessary, therefore not included. Made In England.

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.

Good small lock for cabinets. I recommend this company for their help also.

Great company to help and direct you to the right part.


EXACTLY like the original hardware on a 1966 Morgan 4/4 glovebox lock. High quality and Made in England.

Paxton a staple

I have ordered from Paxton before the internet and they have been and still are a reliable source. Their detailed description takes the guessing out of ordering.
