Latch
30-Aug-2014
By

"I've used one of these in the past and decided to change all the latches on my doors. They look good and are very easy to install, they were a little differently shaped to the previous ones but nothing a sharp chisel couldn't alter."

63mm latch, Eclipse
25-Oct-2012
By

"Branded Eclipse latches, much better than the cheaper <£1 latches I'd previously used that were catching on opening. More than twice the price, but worth the little extra as the job stays done."

Pricey but maybe worth it
18-Mar-2013
By
, Newcastle upon Tyne
"The latch is faultless - nice finish, smooth action that seems like it won't deteriorate, same with the retaining plate for the door frame. The screws supplied are absolute junk though. The softest screws that could possibly sourced were included. I piloted all my holes, but could not stop the screwheads from rounding off not even halfway screwed into the door. The first 2 screws had to be unscrewed with a pair of pliers gripping the head, I didn't even attempt to use the other 2.
The saving grace was using spare screws from a Jedo door handle set when the bar-through method of fixing the door handles was used."

Not brilliant...
05-Mar-2013
By
, Falkirk
"I only have one of these to go on but it didn't impress. The latch catches on itself and has to be released again by hand. Not a major inconvenience but it was a pain to further countersink the plate to try to avoid this. It didn't work. Still, at £2.49, I got what I paid for."

Check before fitting
22-Nov-2012
By
, Chesterfield
"Bought 7. Went for higher price latch hoping for better quality. 2 days after fitting one failed with the door closed - effectively locking me in the room! Could only open it by cutting through with angle grinder brought by my daughter, after a telephone call, and passed through a small window. Can see the funny side now but didn't at the time.
Screwfix replaced faulty one without quibble and gave me £10 voucher.
Removed other 6. Checked and greased them before refitting. No problems since.
Suggest you check carefully for smooth action, then grease before fitting.

Bad quality Latch!!!

"The quality is very poor for the price... same sort of quality you would find in the 99p store's!! Even the colour is wrongly described (Satin Nickel) more like chrome! Not Please!"

Ok but not great
28-May-2012
By
, Sandy Bedfordshire
"They are basic, no frills and manufactured so when installed not all of the handles are level (would be ok with knobs), they crunch when you turn them also - metal on metal noise...I am fussy and they will get changed when I can get some top of the range ones. They say nickle but that is not chrome to my surprise they were more brass in colour. And I would not have brought them because of that when the rest of my hardwear is chrome."

Cheap door furniture
20-Jun-2013
By
, North Essex
"The latch in question, was part of a door furniture set. I know you get what you pay for, but of the 4 sets I bought for a project, two of them failed after a couple of months.
The second fail ended up with me having to force the bedroom door open to extract the broken latch. Customer not impressed, me neither. Cheaply made, poor end result."

eclipse latches
24-Mar-2013
By
, watford
"these latches are useless you can push them in with your finger straight out of the pack and they stay in which means when someone really pulls down on a handle the latch will go in and not return. rubbish, eclipse should stick to making hinges and screwfix should look for better quality ironmongery.Not every one is obsessed with price some of us want to be able to offer our customers a decent product."

Does not push in
29-Jul-2012
By
, Essex
"I did not buy the cheapest latch on the screwfix website thinking I would get better quality for a little more money.
I have been proven wrong by the shameful quality of this product.
I will be returning 5 of 8 of these latches because they do not push all the way in.
Don't buy them.
