102mm best latch for old doors
2 Sep 2014
By Neo112

" Excellent product good quality and finish. Brass and satin finish included is great idea.
At 102mm long (80mm plate to hall) it does make it harder to install but it is worth it for that all important period look. if you are fed-up scraping your knuckles every time you open this door then this latch may be the answer.

Work well
7 May 2013
By jbonevia

" Bought 3 to fit door knobs to internal solid pine doors.
Good quality and well made, all 3 sprung back fine with a firm action, contrary to earlier reviews.
A little pricey but they are an odd size (other sheds dont stock 102mm/4 inch) and only fitted today so long term reliability still to be established but not anticipating any issues,
Would buy again. "

Nice solid latch
20 Apr 2015
By DaveTheDog
, Shropshire
" I fitted two of these latches to two brand new solid oak doors. The lock comes with both brass and satin chrome fittings.
The only problem I had was that these appear to be 1 inch locks and SF only sell 25 mm augers and flat bits. I found that by using the auger to drill they initial hole (better for drilling in a straight line than the flat bit) and then using the flat bit and wriggling it up and down a bit I got a hole that the lock slid into nicely.
The return spring seems to be strong enough ( I've fitted these locks with double spring handles and the combination may be a little too sprung but time will tell). "

Looks good tastes bad
10 Oct 2010
By screwyg

" A very deep mortice latch takes a lot of work to dig out the holes.
Thought I would go for quality and looks. Looks are great but the latches are badly made. Out of seven I bought only two or three will relax gently, the others stick on a lip and have to be manually eased for the door to close. I'm taking the faulty ones back hoping it was a bad batch!

Poor product

" This product sticks in the position when you open the door and you have to twist the handle to bring the latch out again. Spring action is totally inadequate. "
