Glen Huey is a woodworker who is often featured in Popular Woodworking magazine. We are always delighted when he uses our hardware. In the June 2007 issue, he built a Southern Sugar Chest, which is a piece with an interesting history. To lock the top, he used our CL-5 chest lock.

Solid brass chest locks available in two sizes. Each is supplied with two keys and a mating receptacle. 1-3/16" from top to the pin with a 9/16" selvedge.

Half Mortise Chest Locks

This is a fantastic lock and the price is better than I expected. I'm very happy with my purchase. And the customer service at Horton Brasses is excellent. I ordered some hardware and mistakenly selected the wrong kind of screws. So I sent them an email and they got back to me right away. My hardware had the right kind of screws that I requested, and some extras just in case which I really appreciated.

Half Mortise Chest Locks

Love the Items I bought. Oval Keyhole Escutcheon, Precision Butt Hinges, and ring pulls. I highly recommend Horton Brasses. I found out about them by reading a recommendation by Chris Schwarz who used to be a editor at Popular Woodworking. I'm new to the wood working world but I'm excited that I've found my source for hardware.
