I have a ceder chest that needed a lock replacement for the broken steel and brass unit. It must have taken 20 minutes to get the old one out and new one in. A perfect fit. I like it.

Received the locks I ordered and am very satisfied with them. I got all steel locks and some brass/steel. They look great-they operate great and the price is fair. Also NOT MADE IN CHINA
