Our New, Neat Elite Slim Jewelry Box Lock is the only solid stainless steel full mortise box lock on the market.  We have improved the Neat Elite by slimming down the case to 5mm thickness and given the case ends a sleek rounded look. So not only does this lock look amazing and require less material removal, but you no longer have to square up the case mortise ends prior to fitting.  It is far superior in quality to the plated ones available and once fitted has a very clean neat look. This is a precision made full mortise jewelry box lock. We love the lock mechanism as it has a very satisfying click on opening and locking. So, don’t risk your plating flaking or use a weaker base material for locks on your perfect boxes. Instead, buy the ultimate jewelry box lock directly from us, here on-line.  Why not read some of our box lock reviews below and find out for yourself the difference that quality box hardware can make to your finished pieces.  If you have already experienced the positive outcomes then we would love to hear from you, so please send us a review

Technical Details

Our box lock is solid stainless steel and polished to a mirror-like finish.  The lock strike plates, the lock casing and the key are all created from this robust metal.  The main casing is now a slim 5mm thick and has been rounded at each end so not only do you have less material to remove, you also don’t need to square-up the mortise ends before fitting.  Our Neat Box Lock plates are 8mm wide x 76mm long x a case depth of 25mm.  Distance to pin is 16mm.  We supply each lock with 2 sets of screws and one elegant stainless steel key.

Background to the Neat Elite Lock

In 2012 Ian Hawthorne set himself the task to produce a box lock that was –

  • Easy to fit.
  • Had a great solid action.
  • With a mirror polished finish.

The Neat Lock has evolved over the years from its first manufacture in 2012 to the latest revision which is now the Neat Elite Slim Lock which is being manufactured from 2021.

  1. Andrew Wilkerson

    This is possibly the best lock design I’ve ever come across and I used to be a locksmith so trust me I’ve seen and used many over the years before box making.
    I’ve used these ones several times on my boxes. Don’t bother fitting a low quality lock. Get these and you can’t go wrong. The customers are always pleased with the solid click as the box lid shuts, it will last forever, and they are much easier to fit than other designs I’ve tried. I used one of these on a box for a Notary Public. Now all his colleges want one! If only there were more hours in the day 🙂

    Really beautiful hardware. I spent many hours looking and nothing else comes close to the quality, fit, and finish.

  3. David Keating

    A stunning lock to match the stunning hinges. I can’t think of any other way of adding elegance, style, character and high quality to any box than with Hawthorne hardware. The finish is unreal, the lovely click of the lock engaging and disengaging gives good feedback to the user so that they hard not trying to force open a lid that’s still locked. I am aware of this problem from using low quality locks in the past. But only does the click gives instant feedback on lock position but also attracts your attention to the stunning hardware upon opening the box for the first time and many more times after that. I would highly recommend these locks and hinges. You won’t be disappointed.
