worked great attaching latch in the top was tricky, but the mechanism was smooth, and easy.

I used this on a walnut - combination jewelry armoire and music box.
I used this on a walnut - combination jewelry armoire and music box. I put it on the music box, which houses a 72 note movement. Because this was a special gift for my wife, I used the highest quality hardware and movement. First the positives: This was very easy to install. A 1/4 inch forstner bit and 1/4 inch chisel did the job easily. It works great and does exactly what it is designed to do. Now the negatives: The quality does not match the quality of the Brusso hinges and other nice brass hardware I used. The key plate is thin, flat, and plain looking; and it is installed with brass brads instead of screws. The catch is also of thin material and installed to the lid with brads instead of screws. The thickness of brads' heads prevents the lid from shutting completely, leaving a small gap between the box and lid. I was able to make the gap smaller, but not able to eliminate it altogether by mortising the lock's plate into the top of the box. They also made the latch and catch spaced far enough apart that I had to use a small screwdriver to pry the catch down some in order to lock it. This lock would be sufficient for some projects, but is over-priced for the quality. I found other mortise locks on the internet that would have been more suitable for my needs at similar prices, but I ordered from Rockler because they are an excellent company to deal with. Love the company (Rockler) - not so keen on this product at this price.

poor quality full mortise small box locks.
I purchased 3 full mortise chest locks, item #34332 for use on cigar humidors. The lock mechanism is a real problem. Sometimes it works and sometimes it fails to latch. After installing these locks on 3 high end cigar humidors which will sell for $700 each, I will have to remove and replace them with something of higher quality. The quality of these locks is nor commensurate with the quality of the humidor products. Sure wish I could return them and get my mony back!

Not as durable as they should be
I have been using these on my veneered jewelry boxes for five or six years now. I had been using a half mortise lock from England that was very well made. These full mortise locks caught my eye and although they cost twice what I was paying for my English locks I thought the ease of installation would offset the cost. I love the look and because I have an overhead router they are a snap to install. Up until now things have been fine. Then earlier this year I bought four locks for a group of boxes I was making. I installed the first and in testing function the key locked and on turning it to unlock the key just spun around. This was in a finished box. After fiddling with it for half an hour it unlocked. I tried the other three and the same thing happened. They were all returned. Recently I had a box returned that I sold two years ago because of the same thing. I thought the earlier group may have been a bad batch but the older lock raised my concern. At $30+ the locks should be tough as nails. They have brass parts inside and I think they need to be steel. My jewelry boxes retail around $600 so I need something I can trust. It looks like I will be returning to the tried and true English lock.

Not happy with the finish. I tried to clean it, polish, etc. I ended up getting a new one somewhere else. This was going in a jewelry box for my wife.

Can anyone suggest a decent full mortise small box lock? I have looked and looked but cannot find one anywhere.

Will this work on cigar boxes?
Peg M on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it would work on cigar boxes
How do you anchor the catch and how do you line it up? my Half Mortise catch has a straight smooth shaft it is not a screw in.
Marion F on Aug 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The catch is anchored with two small round head nails. The round heads will create a gap if the catch is mounted flush. I cut a shallow mortice for the catch. The way I line this up is by putting double sided tape on the catch. Then (after the lock is installed. I put the catch in the lock and close the lid. When the bow is reopened the catch is stuck in the proper position.I carefully Outline the catch with a knife and proceed from there.
