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

Replacing Surface 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.

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.
