"This lock feels and looks very well made, upgraded my previous lock and my door feels a lot more secure now...and I prefer this Era lock to my previous Yale one...and the price at Screwfix is very good too"

Review 2 for ERA BS Night Latch Polished Chrome 60mm Backset
"I was replacing a Yale BS Security lock and saw this ERA one at almost half the price of the Yale equivalent so decided to get it instead of another Yale lock. I'm glad I did. The ERA one the the same British Standard 3621:2004 high security level and seems just as well made as the Yale. The lock was straightforward to fit and once in place actually works better than the old Yale one I had. Also comes with three keys which is handy."

Review 4 for ERA BS Night Latch Polished Chrome 60mm Backset
"Instructions say if your door is 45mm or less thick you might need to cut the bolts short. There are pre-scored grooves for helping this with a hacksaw.
My door is 44.5mm thick, so I accidentally knackered one bolt (too long, reached the end of the thread inside the face plate, stopped and sheared at one of the grooves. So I carefully cut the next one. Then I cut the other bolts where marked but this made them too short!!! So I had to chisel 5mm out of the inside of my door all over to make things work.
Furthermore, instructions refer to "the 4 wood screws". A plethora of screws are supplied. It didn't matter anyway, they were all soft as butter and the head stripped off the first one before I got it 3/4 of the way in. Got that out with pliers and used some goldscrews I had around instead.
As others say, the lock is a bit clunky but works so far. Looks well built. Time will tell but the screws and bolts supplied are terrible and instruction a bit dodgy!"
