Lock source
« on: August 12, 2009, 08:16:16 AM »
I am looking for a source for a Biedermier drawer lock.  The escutcheon is centered on a 6 inch wide drawer so it needs to handle that distance.  I am aware of Londonderry, Whitechapel, Horton, Ball and ball, Optimum....  who else?

CBWW,
Is the problem finding a lock with a bolt long enough to reach the case?

If so, this reminds me of the problem when a secretary slide is used over the top drawer so the top drawer must lock downward into the drawer divider. When I ran into this, I called Ball and Ball and they made a lock that had the keyhole up but the bolt went down. Call the suppliers you list and you'll likely get what you need. I dont even recall that B&B charged extra for it.

I realized that Whitechapel actually carries what I need but I would like to find other options.  I suspect the locks are coming out of England.   It is a drawer lock with around a 3 inch back set.
