Can't argue for this price
19 Jul 2011
By Chrisbwah
, London
"It's a pretty bog-standard bit of kit this, but is at least reasonably sturdy. Looks quite nice all polished up but the finish is wanting a bit when you look closely, e.g. the grinding marks haven't been polished out in the corners of the slot. The fit between flap and body isn't great so you're going to need a brush on the inside of the door to keep the drafts down. Still, like I said, for the price..."

"Needed to replace brass letterflap which had become tarnished, and changed material to match new Yale lock. Closer examination of internal edges show not as polished as the faces and grinding marks visible.
Don't suppose postie is going to be too bothered. Also slightly larger flap than original so have to carve the door a bit more.

However the price paid was good considering the alternative products on the marketplace"

"Although heavy and highly polished (outside) the inside is rough cast and untidy so you will need something on the inside to cover it such as a brush or internal flap.
My problem was the chrome work was pitted and missing along the top edge which was highly visible.
So check it before you leave save yourself two journeys."

You get what you pay for...
16 Apr 2012
By HelloBud

"I got this, then returned it. What you can't see in the photo is how rough the letter flap cut is. It is only polished on the face, the sides and flap cut are very rough. Given I have to look at this every time I go out the front door, I spent a bit more to get a neater product. Having said all that, if you don't need a great finish, this would do the job."

Not just a bad batch
6 Oct 2013
By FatNav
, Crewe
"Bought one of these letter plates without reading the reviews and got the thing home to find the finish is just awful. Inner edge of opening really poor with deep grind marks all around and the chrome plating was really patchy. Returned it to the trade counter to exchange and everyone we looked at was the same. Very poor. Had refund and purchased a properly finish item for similar money else where. Not to Screwfix usual standard."

Dreadful
14 May 2013
By ArcElectrical
, London
"I read the other reviews and they were saying that it as a batch error, no it isn't.
This unit is a (not so cheap) cheap rubbish. the finish is dreadful, steer well clear of it. The chrome plating has been poorly applied and the welds have not been finished correctly."

Faulty letterbox
2 Jan 2013
By golfish
, essex
"apparently screwfix had a bad batch from supplier.The rim has ugly and unsightly very pronounced file marks in all 4 corners which were then plated over.The makers obviously have very poor inspection proceedures.Screwfix (Basildon) did their best to exchange mine but each new one opened was the same or worse.they are still trying to get some that are acceptable! Good luck with that! If not we will be refunded and keep the one we have.which is necessary because the hole for it is cut in my door to that size.Screwfix should source from another supplier,NOT PLEASED!"
