Box Locks are used on boxes to keep items inside secure, with the box owner requiring a key in order to reveal what is inside. The area around the box lock key hole can either be left as is, or decorated with an escutcheon. Our Neat Locks are machined from solid brass and solid stainless steel, making the perfect companions to our Neat Hinges. The polished plates have no exposed lugs, and the screw holes, like the Neat Hinge, are set slightly below the surface for that neat finish. Each lock features a smooth locking action with a very satisfying "click”.
