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.

    High quality. Very nice on an antique piece of furniture.

    We are a fine furniture restoration business in VA and we purchased a left and right lock for a very unique cabinet we restored. The quality and style of the locks matched the piece perfectly. Very satisfied.
