  • Full Mortise Locks are a low profile design. Once installed only brass selvedge and keyhole are visible. The result is a smooth wood surface, surrounding the lock body. German engineering and smooth action combine producing this well-made, dependable lock. Made in Germany.

    Full Mortise Locks have three keyhole positions. This unique mechanism can be used on either left doors, right doors or drawers. Keyholes are offset requiring care when positioning lock in furniture. When installing: Full Mortise Locks are fitted into a pocket, carved in drawer top or door side. Strikes not necessary and rarely used. If preferred generic strikes are available. 


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

    For help measuring and selecting full mortise locks, we recommend reading: How to select, measure and install full mortise cabinet locks.

    Understanding Full Mortise Locks for furniture and cabinets

    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.

    desk lock

    The lock was as described and I was prepared and made the necessary modification to use it in an old secretary's desk. It would have been nice if I could have purchased a lock with the same dimensions as the old one, however this is a very satisfactory solution.

    Not Bad

    I needed various parts for restoring a 1920's era secretary, hinges, locks, lid stays etc., that has been in the family since it was new and that was going to be passed on to the next generation. I Googled and found Paxton. I bought a variety of mortised locks, some hinges and escutcheons and was very pleased with the product, the professional nature of the service and will ultimately be purchasing more form Paxton.
