Neat and simple lock
25 Jan 2012
By
, Kent
" This lock is perfect for my cloakroom as I didn't want a bulk standard bolt. As for it being to stiff to use hasn't the other person heard of WD40 all locks need a bit of oil from time to time. The only thing I would say is the locking tab would look better if it was chrome plated rather than being passivated which gives it a yellowish colour. Other than that it's good value for money. "

Modified to improve further
9 May 2016
By
, Oxfordshire
" The item has a quality chrome coating, inexpensive and is much better than a standard door bolt. The only issue is that the latch, when in the unlocked position, retracts and protrudes significantly. Modified by disassembling the lock and cutting the latch along one of the groove marks. This limits the latch throw but is easily restricted by using a screw as a bumpstop behind the keep/striking plate. With this modification the lock is aesthetically more pleasing when in the unlocked position as the latch can no longer be seen. "

" I have had a few of these, and they do look good. However, I have had a few duff ones., where the thumb barrel has been eccentric and this makes it difficult to turn. "

Cheap but also a bit nasty
8 Apr 2016
By
, Stratford
" Bought this for a bathroom door - it does the job very well, was easy to fit, seems strong, and was a very good price. However the finish on the bar that slides across is just bare metal and looks very cheap, not the sort of finish you'd want if your bathroom is posh! "

Junk screws let this down
10 Jun 2014
By
, Hampshire
" A decent enough fixing that is let down by shoddy screws. 2 sheared off when trying top tighten, and 2 others stripped the crosshead. Not happy.
Will be returning for a full refund plus replacement screws.....
Would not recommend buying unless using replacement screws. "

Not up to the usual standard
24 Dec 2015
By
, Northern Ireland
" The outside looks ok but the working bits are poorly finished, which makes for a really nasty action.
I tried smoothing the burrs with a fine file and lubricating but it wasn't much better
In one direction the "bolt" slides too far such that it jams inside the case and can't be moved back.
This will be going back for a refund.
Hopefully, the reduced price is an indication that Screwfix won't be doing this item any more. "

" I have purchased this item and the fixing screws that come with it THREE IN ALL! When you require SIX. The screws have not even got a thread!
A wasted journey!

Cheap, but rubbish!
10 Oct 2011
By
, Portsmouth
" Fitted 2 of these to WC's in a student house and after a couple of days use both were so difficult to turn the tenants stopped using them!
Also bought a dozen door entrance sets of which 4 have been replaced within 18 months because they malfunctioned and couldn't be locked - poor quality, again. TIME IS MONEY.
