Antique Furniture Locks were used on furniture made during the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. This authentic half mortise style is suitable for drawers and doors hinged on right. When using on doors select according to side door is hinged on.
Nice quality with a secure lever locking mechanisms, steel box and brass plate. Left and right hand style of same lock size are keyed alike. If using on drawers: keyholes are off-center requiring lock to be positioned accordingly.
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.
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.

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.
