Cabinets, Furniture, Woodworks/key hole


I have an Ethan Allen dresses the metal key hole that holds the
key  fell out & I must have vaccumed it up. Where can
I find a replacement?

Hi Pam,

The part that you're looking for is called the keyhole escutcheon. There're so many different styles and shapes, you may have to search around a little bit to find the exact one you need. I just looked at a few of the online hardware sources that I use, and found these:

The first link, for Horton Brass, shows a lot of different varieties of these keyhole covers, but all the rest of the links are good, too. You should be able to find what you're looking for here.

By the way, if you have an old fashioned hardware store in your town - you might be able to find one of these keyhole covers there, without having to go online.

Good luck, I hope this helps.
