Half Mortise Box Lock Measurement Diagram

Lift Lid Box Locks are sturdy, hard working locks. They are beautifully crafted of solid brass with a brass strike. Use on small and medium chests and boxes with a lift lid. 

These half mortise locks are made for lift lid boxes and must be used with a strike. Lock is mortised flush with  wood on interior, strike attaches underneath surface of lid. Once installed lock plate is seen on interior while only keyhole appears on exterior of box. When lid is closed, strike will drop into lock and be secured with key.  Made in England.

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.
