you want what???

" I am in the process of redecorating my house, and decided to change all the door furniture. No a problem until it came to the twiddly knobs that lock an internal door. Everyone thought I was mad, until i tried Screwfix.
Oh yes they said, we have those, the right product and they were half the price or other workarounds.
The staff were helpful and friendly and everything was in stock.
Job well done
Thank you

" I bought these to finish our house off as we were changing everything from brass to Chrome. They are great quality and have managed to do the job just fine - very pleased with this product and the finish. "

Thumb turn for security bolt
25 Aug 2014
By quietman

" Ok for what it is,
The spline will need cutting in length for all but the thickest of doors and the fixing screws are a bit soft, best to pilot drill first. "

Rack bolt THUMB turn - chrome
12 Jul 2012
By max54
, NW London
" Not a gem of mechanical engineering or superb finish but does the job as it fitted the existing Yale bolts quite well and it looks acceptable. I do not know about long term reliability.
Unless you have got some sort of bionic or incredibly sticky hands, you may need your thumb + another finger to turn it though........ "

" Bought these for some newly fitted security bolts but found that they were too long (42mm) for the (old) door. Didn't want to faf around sorting out packing or cutting them shorter so returned them "

suits the purpose
3 Jan 2010
By emimec

" A good item, suited to the purpose of preventing a 2 year old removing and losing the usual rack bolt key. Quality is questionable though as the mounting plate was not square to the operating splines, thus making operation bind when turning. managed to square it up myself to improve operation "

Not fit for purpose
5 Aug 2013
By jdman
, Tiverton
" The thumbturns supplied were terrible quality. One was bent, the other would not turn until a liberal application of penetrating oil to free it up. When fitted the real problem is shown though - the plastic washer binds against the metal back plate so you cannot turn them without using both hands as they are so stiff. If the back plate is not screwed and is allowed to rotate then they work fine, but the design as intended is fatally flawed. Even loosening the captive washer on the rear did not fix the plastic washer binding problem.
I removed and binned them both. "

Useless

" It just doesn't work. The spline is too small which means that the bolt will not turn. Tested with a number of different bolt manufacturers. "
