"I fitted this lock to a standard bathroom door. the spindle was long enough to cope..in fact i had to cut it down a bit. Simple to fit, easy to use, looks the part and cheep....A happy customer...!!!!!!!!"
"Fairly reasonable bolt, that works o.k.. Screws rubbish as normal, but hopefully won't be taking them out again! Straight forward to fit, as long as trim the length of the actuating rod well, as any pressure causes the dial to show "VACA" and/or "ENGA".!"
"1 - The position of the door stop will decide the location of the indicator plate, this in turn decides location of the sliding bolt mechanism. 2 - The circlips and follower bar sockets stand proud of the plates, so the door must be drilled accordingly. After drilling a 3mm pilot hole through the door, you will need to use an 18mm flat bit to cut 1-2mm deep recesses in both sides of the door. As some hollow/flush doors have skins only 3-4mm thick, this needs to be done with great care. The 10mm clearance holes for the sockets can then be drilled. 3 - Remember to test by releasing the bolt with a 10p piece from the outside, show responsible adults in the household how to do this."
"The finish is not very good and looms quite cheap. The satin chrome front is not well cast and there is a noticeable recess in the casting. In addition the " Vacant/Engaged" indicator has clearly smudged writing.
As such I won't be putting the latch up in my house as it really is of a very poor quality."

Review 10 for Bathroom Indicator Bolt Satin Chrome
"Bought two of these. Had to take apart and reassemble with extra spacing washers to prevent legends wearing off when lock rotated. Bolt part itself works very well and all looks good but spoilt by bad design"
