Pressed Drawer Lock 3"
Made in England
Size: 3" x 1 7/8", Selvedge: 9/16"
Our 3" English half mortise cabinet drawer locks are a good alternative to our fine extruded backplate style. The back is thick brass and the mechanism is a secure lever design. 2 keys are supplied and we usually ship groups keyed together where possible. If you are building traditional cabinetry these half mortise locks are a better choice than the common full mortise type not only from the perspective of authenticity but also for some practical reasons. A half mortise lock is set further towards the back of the drawer front so there is more thickness in which to fasten an escutcheon. The mortise is much easier to cut as it is shallow and wide rather than deep and narrow.
