nice finish
19 Apr 2015

" I bought a load of these to replace the manky old brass latches which were also covered in paint.
Firstly the body is slightly wider than the originals I was replacing. the hole in the door needed a few extra millimetres carefully removing.
Secondly the faceplate and strikeplate were fractionally larger so minor chisel work was required.
Thirdly as I have only just installed these I can't comment on the overall reliability but they feel solid enough and are currently working very well. "

" I chose this latch as others received poor reviews.
It has a nice smooth action and was easy to fit.
I've rated at reliabilty at 3 stars as its been fitted for only a few days. I did add some lubricating oil before fitting.

" You may need to chip a bit more wood, as it appears to be a bit more square an thicker that other standard latches. But this may be a good sign of better and robust built "

Quality tubular latch
18 Oct 2014
By Scrumpy9
, Compton Dundon
" I bought this latch to replace a cheaper quality latch that literally disintegrated and rendered the door locked in the closed position. Luckily the tradesperson who fitted the door was no exponent of the 'penny joint' principle and it was relatively easy to open the door. Goes to prove, however, that buying poor quality products such as the previously installed latch could cause significant headaches due to lack of reliability. This latch was not cheap, but obviously of much higher quality: I could fit it with peace of mind! To give the latch a 5 star rating for performance and reliability, I would wish to review in 20 or 30 years time .... or leave this as a task for my son! "

" The first one of these I received was great. good quality and looked fantastic. The next batch were pretty standard. Not sure if they have changed the make or I was given the wrong one the first time but they all work. can't complain. "

Good quality
3 Jan 2009
By bobo

" It's amazing the amount of awful wonky tubular latches there are being sold at various places. These are good quality and are machined straight and true. The only problem with them is the barrel is not square so a circular hole often needs a bit chiseling out from the top and bottom to make the latch barrel fit in. "

" Functional but the latch and the receiver are different sizes. This means that when the door is shut it has some play in it. So the door rattles when the windows are open. "

horrible product
10 Feb 2012
By rwlon

" Really disappointed in this product. Was not satin finish and also had eclipse branding engraved all over the part of the plate that would show. Took back to store who were amazingly helpful. Their stock of same product didn't have
branding on but was still shiny not satin finish. The man at store couldn't have been more apologetic and helpful. Really good service let down but very poor product. Shame as bought them to go with satin chrome door knobs which are great and will now have to source from somewhere else as can't put door knobs on.
