Half Mortise Jewelry Box Locks

Thank you for very beautful, small lock with key. It was very easy to shop with you.

James Mertson
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.
