    Default Looking to replace Yale Half Mortise Lock

    Hello Everyone, any help you could give would be much appreciated. I have an old Carpenters Chest I am restoring. It has a Yale Half Mortise Lock. In the past I have used a friend's very large key collection to obtain a working key for old locks. It is time consuming but, works very well. In this case, as you can see in the pictures, a key will not help until I can replace the "striker" (not sure if that is the correct term.) It appears a previous owner probably lost the key and removed the lugs on the striker, it can be seen in the pictures. I would like to replace just the striker but, would replace the entire lock if a replacement could be found that matches the dimensions. Thank you all for your patience in reading this long post and thanks in advance for any help.

    L-o-n-g discontinued, Yale exited the cabinet lock business decades ago. There are some contemporary import chest locks but all that I am aware of utilize a barrel type key. See link for an example:

    That actually is a great help! It shows the shape of the lugs on the striker plate! I may be able to make the part out of a brass billet. I knew the part would not be available new but, I thought maybe someone in this group might be a collector and may have this lock or possible parts. Either way; thank you for your effort, having the shape of the lugs is a huge help to me!

    Yes,
    I knew the part would not be available new but, I thought maybe someone in this group might be a collector and have this lock or parts. Thanks for the link, I have scoured the woodwork and furniture supply sites for similar locks. Cannot find anything similar that would not require large changes to the chest; that would be unacceptable for this project. Thank you for the assist!
