"Does what it does but the screws supplied are very poor. Always pilot hole and don't over tighten as any torque at all will pull the screw head off."

very cheap!!!

"Bought 3 of these for a garage project and have to say I agree with what others have said. The bolt itself is ok, cheap but does what it needs to. The screws are useless for using on softwood or plyboard with heads chewing up or not made properly for a screwdriver head to fit into. My other issue was that 2 packs had pozidrive screws while the other had slotted screws not very good for the finished look of my job. Screwfix need to find a supplier who will provide better quality bolts and screws."

"These look nothing like the picture. They look plain and functional but not the polished chrome they are described as . Does the job but that's all"

Let down by screws. Not Happy

"What a waste of time buying this bolt.
As the other reviews, tried to fix the bolt to the wall, with a pilot hole, and as soon as tried to tighten.....pop, off came the head. 8 times on 3 bolts.
The bolt itself is decent enough for the money, but is let down so much by the cheapness of the screws.
Will be returning to the store for a refund and swap for another product (plus decent screws). Pity about all the 1/2 screws stuck in my door.
Avoid unless using replacement screws"

"As above - don't rely on the screws.
In fact, don't even bother to use them (unless Screwfix has sorted them in the meantime).
I opened the packet and found 8 screws included (the product only requires 6). The first screw went in 3/4 before the head started to chew up. The second screw went in without a problem. The third screw went in then the head snapped. I went to get a fourth screw but there were two with no heads, two with vitrually no heads (there isn't a screwdriver on earth that could fit in the shallow gap) and one with a malformed head which would have snapped if used.
Not impressed Screwfix - you need to sort these issues with cheap screws supplied with products.
The bolt itself seems reasonable but I'm now left with a job with two screws that look ok, one screw with a half snapped head and three screws from my emergency screw box !"

Awful screws

"The actual lock itself seems OK, cheap and cheerful as the other chap said. However the screws provided are horrific. Two of them the heads came clean off when tightening which considering guide holes were drilled is absolutely appalling. Not worth the risk/frustration even at the price. It's very disappointing that Screwfix stock this item considering it's extremely low build quality.
I can assure you, that will be the only time you see the word quality and this item in the same sentence."
