These hard working locks are made strictly for doors. Easy to install, surface locks mount directly to interior of doors, with no mortising required.

  • Furniture Keyhole Cutout Location: distance between furniture-edge to estimated location of lock pin in furniture keyhole.

Library lock

Lock is great, escutcheon to match key is a problem. Recommended keyhole insert "large" was over-sized. Average keyhole insert was too small. Haven't found just right.
