Replacing Half 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.

Great response to my enquiry. Website easy to navigate. Product arrived in good time considering it was approaching Xmas. Well done Paxton!

Excellent quality furniture lock

The lock was excellent quality, and fit perfectly. This was the only place I could find it. The dimensions listed on the website were spot on. Fixed the broken lock on my 200 year old butler chest!
