"I use these locks all the time in a healthcare environment and have had very few problems with them, they are easy to fit, I have been fitting these for five years and can now fit one in fifteen minutes, but if you are new to it, then allow an hour. Make sure you know the barrel lengh before fixing the template, as I had an engineer drill holes in the wrong place and we had to buy a longer barrel to overcome. Overall a great lock at a very sensible price, especially if buying three or more of these."
"Really robust and well finished lock. Step by step instructions and template were helpful, made installation reasonably straightforward. Agree with earlier comments about the backplate fixing screws needing care to make sure they were the correct length. I used a grinder to shorten them. Also had to make sure that the holes drilled into the door were exactly at right angles. Then it all lines up perfectly."
"Although this is an entry level push button code lock it is excellent value for money. These locks are generally used in business premises but I purchased it for use at home & it is an excellent lock, providing both security & convenience at a great price.
The only negative thing I found was that although the instructions said it was simple & quick to fit, it was far more difficult & took much longer than I expected. You also need the right tools to fit it, so if you're going to attempt to fit it yourself it would be a good idea to check to see what tools you need beforehand, or get someone else to fit it if you're unsure.
Now it's fitted I'm really pleased with this product."
"Previous reviewers comments made me choose this for a customer and I wasn't disappointed. Very well made hence the price tag, but worth every penny. The template was well presented and made the lock a piece of cake to install. Rated it down on 'reliability' as too early to say if it is or not!"
"A good quality push button lock which is reasonably easy to install. I would have preferred a lock with a shorter distance between the latch /edge of door and the handle and it would be helpful if the website had given this dimension. Screws holding the back plate to the keypad front plate are snap off type to accommodate different door thicknesses but you need to be careful to make sure they snap in the right place! Recommended"

Review 10 for Codelock Push Button Lock Non-Handed
"Looked like a tidy product but fixing screws were far too weak and sheared at the slightest torque. Possibly a batch quality issue as so many people have given it the thumbs up. Will try again just to be sure as the door holes have already been drilled."

Review 11 for Codelock Push Button Lock Non-Handed
"I bought this lock from Screwfix and had this lock on my door for just under a year. It worked fine for 11 months and then stopped working with the 'bolt' not 'springing back' accurately into the faceplate.
The product has a 1 year guarantee, so after much correspondence codelocks agreed to allow me to send it back to them freepost. On inspection they said the bolt had become damaged because the door had likely moved a bit and damaged the mechanism.
To quote Codelocks in their correspondence to me: "when the door is closed the latch bolt enters the strike plate, the small deadlocking plunger/pin must never enter the strike plate (the plunger/pin is located on the flat side of the latch bolt). This sits on the surface of the strike plate, is pushed in, and deadlocks the latch out. If there is misalignment this will put pressure on the latch bolt and over time cause it to be kept in bind, eventually becoming slightly bent and sticking in the latch barrel. Is the door slamming shut? Has the door dropped slightly and catching on the door frame? This will most certainly cause misalignment of the latch, and put the latch into bind."
The 'tolerances' are very small and in my opinion therefore only suitable for a door and frame that will not move at all (maybe a metal door).
As we all know, wooden external doors will move a little in their lifetime.
Codelocks would not replace the lock without charge under their guarantee.
Therefore, if you have a door that might just move a tiny bit - be warned this lock is not 'Fit for Purpose' and their 'guarantee' will not cover you."
