Our New, Neat Elite 22 Jewelry Box Lock is the only solid stainless steel full mortise box lock on the market. We have improved the Neat Elite by adding an even smoother locking action, with the NEW ball-bearing pressure system. The lock is super easy to fit with streamline casing and offers a NEW logo Personalisation option*. So not only does this lock look amazing and require less material removal, but you don’t 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, and it still retains a very satisfying click on opening and closing. 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 either by Trustpilot or through our website.

Designed and manufactured in-house by us in Northern Ireland (UK), our jewelry box lock stainless steel is solid stainless steel 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 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 +/- 0.01mm – plate thickness 3mm +/- 0.03mm 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 22 Lock, on sale from 2022, and manufactured at our own premises in Northern Ireland (UK).
