    Lift Lid Box Locks are an historic style used on antique and vintage chests and boxes. This lock mounts to chest interior. It is hidden from view when box lid is closed.

    They are a half mortise type lock. To install lock is fitted into a cut out on box interior. Strike attaches underneath surface of lid. When lid is closed, strike will drop into lock and be secured with key. These are sturdy hard working locks. Made in England.

    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.
