Make a bolt for the door
09-Oct-2014
By
, Bedfordshire
"I have fitted 4 of this size of bolt to two doors and 20 or more of the 100mm size and found they need a bit of attention prior to fitting.
Take it apart if necessary and make sure there is plenty of tension in the flat spring. Assemble the parts and tighten the knob with grips.Throw away the screws that come with them and use yellow zinc plated goldscrew for a more reliable job.
I agree in part to what others are saying and it should not be necessary to "repair" the bolt or use different screws but at the price and looks of the unit - I really don't mind."

Rubbish bolt
22-Oct-2014
By
, Devon
"This purchase was a replacement for one that failed on first use. The product looks good but that is it. The polish is great but it's poorly cast brass badly put together. With 3 of my bolts the screws fell out since the threads were poorly cut, the fourth had been forced in at an angle and cracked the casting. Better to pay twice as much and get something that is serviceable"

4 broken bolts
17-Aug-2012
By
, Buxton
"Bought 4 of these to put on cupboard doors. I should have headed the other reviewers. The knobs kept falling off. 1 snapped, 2 bent and the other sheared the know off. 4 out of 4 failed.
Given that these seem to be the same issues as others have found, why does Screwfix continue to sell them. Making a decent bolt is not difficult.
FIND A NEW MANUFACTURER

Very poor quality
15-Aug-2011
By
, London
"I bought a couple of these to reinforce the security on my front door, they were advertised as heavy duty, they look beautiful but in practise are cheap and rubbish,badly made, as soon as I fitted one, I tested it by trying to open the door and it snapped straight away.I got a refund but this has been a waste of my time.Why don't screwfix sell a good heavy duty door bolt?"

One broke, one bent
01-Aug-2011
By
, London
"Installed this bolt at the bottom of a pair of French doors, static side to lock it in place to the frame. Looked very good, but that is as far as the positives go. On the negatives the bolt is not very good quality. The first one be bought snapped when the other door slammed shut. The second bolt is currently bent. Also due to the design of the bolt the door rattles. Currently looking for a replacement bolt that looks as good as this one but works."

Brass Dead Lock
30-Jun-2011

"Save your money. They may look nice, however the handles unscrew and fall off. The bar has little resistance and slides too easily, I have already been locked out of my house by my dog knocking the bar across! therefore had to remove."
