"Works a treat - you might have to chisel out additional space if inserting it into doors which had latches which dated before metrication -otherwise all working well."

Made to a price...
2 Apr 2012
By NosamLuap

"These are at the cheap end, so perhaps my expectations were too high... They look OK and were a doddle to fit, but even when carefully located, there is movement on the latch - i.e. when the door is closed, it's possible to move the door slightly in/out because the latch moves within the barrel.
This can result in the latch not popping out into the catch when the door is closed - the latch will 'drag' behind slightly - lowering the handle and raising it again allows the latch to catch because it goes 'straight in' rather than sliding along the strike plate. Setting the strike plate further forward would allow the latch to catch every time, but then doesn't hold the door tight closed in the frame.
Not bad, but I wish I'd spent a little more and tried a different latch."

"not a problem with this item.
check out buying individually as i required the door handles, hinges as well. It worked out cheaper to buy them separately than as a pack of handles ect.
same items only cheaper."

"Latches are things I want to fit for life. I've had a handful of these fail are between 3 and 5 years and that isn't good enough for a customer so I now fit the branded bolt through type Which cost £2.50+ but are far better made."

"Loose and inaccurate. Pushed the door hard enough and it opened. Ended up ordering the £3 version and would now go for that every time."

Better spend a bit more

"I bought and installed these a few years ago in my own house, but wish I spent a bit more on better quality. It didn't take long before many of them didn't retract fully anymore and we got problems locking and unlocking doors. I guess you get what you pay for!"
