  • Antique Furniture Locks are reproductions used on period and country furniture of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Quality resembles historic originals. Locks are made with a secure lever locking mechanism, steel box and brass plate. 

    Strikes were rarely used with this type half mortise lock as wood was notched to accept bolt. However if preferred a generic strike (#4521) is available separately. Made In England

    Select door locks by side door is hinged on. When using on drawers please note that keyholes are off-center. Lock should be positioned to account for off center keyhole.   

    Left and right hand style of same lock size are keyed alike. 

    When replacing antique furniture locks: Lock-backset must match keyhole-location in furniture. This is critical so that key can be inserted through door or drawer-front into lock-keyhole. If these 2 measurements do-not match, it will not be possible to insert key through keyhole in box into lock.

    How to select Half Mortise Locks for drawers, doors and boxes

    If Using Brass Wood Screws

    Care is required when installing brass screws. While these screws are the best match for most antique hardware however they are not as strong as steel screws. The screw is easily damaged if the hole is not properly prepared.

    The best practice is to first drill a pilot hole. Use a drill bit slightly smaller than the overall width of the screw, including threads, to drill the hole. Then use a steel screw, the same size as brass screw, to “cut threads” in pilot hole, by screwing steel screw into and then out of hole.

    Half Morticed Locks

    Worked well. No strike plates were available for our installation so the wood was notched to receive the bolt.

    Excellent Lock

    Although I have not yet installed the small cabinet lock I purchased, I love the quality and smooth operation of the lock. It was exactly what I was looking for.
