    Fitting Furniture Keys

    Replacing keys for an existing lock is difficult
  • Key bits, also known as blades, often require a specific cut to fit a lock. Determining this cut is complex. If key bit is not cut correctly, it will not engage lock mechanism.
  • Unfortunately knowing the manufacturer and model number of the lock does not help in locating a key to fit an antique lock.
  • Cutting the bit/blade, to turn the lock mechanism, often requires the skills of a locksmith.

  • Before choosing a key blank:
  • Determine lock-pin diameter This measurement is critical as key-barrel must slide over lock pin.
  • The key-bit must be sized correctly to move the lock-bolt .

  • Profile of key-bit varies between locks. 
  • Some locks are easily turned with a simple un-notched blade
  • Other locks require a key bit with one notch to lock or unlock
  • Many locks require a key cut with 2 notches: one notch locks the lock the other notch unlocks the lock
  • Some locks, made with spring-loaded levers, also require 2 notches however they also must be different sizes. This type of key is difficult to reproduce

  • Selecting Keyhole Covers - Escutcheons
    For accurate fit:
  • Measure keyhole height in keyhole cover
  • Measure key-end height, height of key-bit
  • Compare above determined measurements, to interior keyhole measurements, of the desired keyhole cover
  • Furniture Key Measurements

    The keys worked right away, on drawer locks that hadn’t been used in a hundred years.
