"When my daughter said her existing lock had broken I was asked to buy and fit another. Not being a carpenter or have much knowledge of locks, I took on the challenge with some reservation. The sales guy at the shop was very helpful and I was guided to this lock which had similar measurements to the existing and the barrel hole requirement matched. Ok it was a bit fiddly but that was my clumsiness and the fact I had no chisels to cut an extra slot required in the door. However having eventualy got it fitted it looks and works really well. I am sure that someone more competent would have had the job done in an hour (not telling how long it took me!) It's probably common to all manufacturers but only supplying 2 keys with a lock is a bit off - 3 would be much more logical as most people would need at least a spare."

Review 3 for Yale 706 Traditional Night Latch Polished chrome plated 40mm Backset
"Very neat little lock but sturdy with it. Very easy to fit. Fixed this to a mahogany finished period door and it looks great. Has a vintage retro feel to it but would look equally good on a modern door that has a slim frame."
