Japanned Iron Door Lockswere commonly used on 19th century furniture. These hard working locks are made strictly for doors. Easy to install, surface locks mount directly to interior of doors, with no mortising required. Attach with wood screws. Strikes not included as not required. Made In England.
Classic black Japanned iron finish adds authentic flair to early cupboard and wardrobe doors. Locks are steel with a black japanned-iron finish. Lock-bolt is brass plated. It exits from either side of lock, enabling locks to work both left and right hand doors. This large size lock is suitable for big cabinet doors.
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.

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.
