Replacing Box 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.

Very satisfied with the small lock and key - so hard to find and such good quality.

Chuck Barnett
Good hardware, great support

First time buying this sort of thing, so I had a bit of learning to do. The responses with help were timely and valuable! I'd buy from Paxton again!

Jewelry Case Lock and Key

Years ago, I built several of of the jewelry cases featured in Woodsmith No. 46 (August 1986). It was a most satisfying project, so recently I decided I needed to build another. However, the original supplier referenced in the plans, no longer carried the locking hardware. But then searching the web, I found Paxton Hardware had a very similar product which filled the bill. Perfect size, great quality and competitive price, so the project is nearing completion. Thanks for a great product!
