very nice, decorative
i used this lock to help decorate a toy chest for a little girl, it helps make the chest look more like furiture and not just something to consolidate toys.combined with brass handles and the dove tailed joint and other thing it helps make it look like it belongs in the liveing room not a closet
I would buy again
It's a good looking product that's easy to install.
PIECE O' JUNK!
I was using this for a SeaChest made from African Mahogony, walnut, maple and oak very expensive woods to be carving and routing in a lock that just fell apart! The center key stabilizer was easily broken off, it was not centered correctly which intern made the lock difficult to open and close, hence why it broke off.
Good quality, Value
If you need a thin morticr lock this is it.
Lock for glass displaya cabinet
The lock access was horozinal and the escutcheon plate needed to be vertical which made it difficult to install on my cabinet making the key difficult to use. Maybe it would have worked better for a blanket chest.
Great Lock, Great Price
I bought the lock for a cedar chest for my oldest daughter. I had looked at other sites and found the same lock but a little more expensive. This lock worked perfectly, was easy to install, and came with everything needed. I had previously built a wedding chest for my youngest daughter out of cherry and wish that I had found this lock before I utilized a half-mortise. Somehow the search engine for Woodcraft did not display the lock at that time. Will buy several more at the first of the year.
not for an heirloom
Mechanism worked hard. In a month the aluminum key wore down a millimeter till it no longer operated the lock. Comes with only one key. Dead key = dead lock.
I gave this lock set a 2 star rating due to the poor design and mechanical flaws. I actually had to file the catch to opperate the lock. Evem still does not have smooth operation when turning the key. Key has very sloppy fit in lock while opperating. You must use at least a 1-1/4" thick material for mortice in order to properly attach the eschechen plate.
lock was installed on a 18th century reproduction hour glass design sea chest, looked great and works very nicely.
Limited applications - rustic
I found the brass finish to be tarnished/uneven so I did not use this lock.
Just what I needed
This product was used in the restoration of an old secretaire. No similar product was available at my location in Australia.[...] Good product.Thank you
