Yale Junior Lock Box

Mortise lock box made by Yale. Cir. 1929. Marked Yale Junior on box and front plate. Marked 808 on the inside which corresponds to numbering in catalogues. Cast iron box with rounded corners. The box measures 3d” x 3 3/4h” x 3/4″ thick.  The front plate measures 5 1/2″h x 7/8″w.  The gap between the latch and deadbolt is 1″.

This particular box has the doorknob shaft squared, which was often used with oval knobs to keep them in the correct upright position. Typically, the shaft went into the lock box in an offset position which can make oval doorknobs sit at an angle.  There were a few different ways of addressing oval doorknobs (lock box setup, offset holes on doorknob shaft, offsetting set screw on doorknob neck). If you are unsure, feel free to ask us!

This setup will not affect normal shaped doorknobs.

We clean, oil and test all of our lock boxes to make sure that they are fully functional. If needed, we may be able to match a skeleton key. We also may be able to match a strike plate/keeper for an additional $10. Please let us know if you are needing additional parts. It is best if we can match parts up while we have it in hand so that we can make sure everything works together properly.

This is an antique item and may show wear due to age. This may include scratches, pitting, patina, finish loss, rust or other general wear. We attempt to include any significant damage beyond regular wear within the description. We make every effort to clean as much paint, dirt and rust off of items while still leaving as much of the original patina as possible. Photos shown are of actual item you will receive.
