    Small box locks

    These brass half mortise locks are of high quality, easy to install and have the “antique”look I was going for. Not brass plated! I will buy from Paxton again.

    Easy to install. Seems sturdy.

    The lock was comparable quality to the antique one I removed. I was shipped quickly and include all parts and hardware.

    Decent product

    Half mortise lock was of decent quality, good price and great service by Paxton Hardware. Shipping was quick, this lock came with two keys and the screws fit properly — unlike other sellers which send one key, slow order processing and lousy support.
