Good Product

"Seems to be working very well on a heavy duty door with plenty of traffic. Far superior to a lot of similar branded latch products. Would definetly recommend to friends. This was bought to replace another brand which after only a few hours had failed to work correctly."

Good Value

"A good value product that performs well. Just make sure that it's fitted without any restrictions in the door, i.e don't make the hole too tight and give each one a bit of machine grease all over before fitting the body into the door and they will last a long time."

"These latches are larger than stated on the measurements they are in fact 80mm so had to return them as they needed to fit existing recess. But the quality of the product overall was great and excellent value for money."

Very cheap but poor quality
24 Dec 2012
By
, Fareham
"I bought a few of these a while back when I replaced all my downstairs doors and had to take a few back then to be exchanged because they were so badly made. Typically the tube was twisted or the collar that takes the square shaft would be skewed meaning that the door handles would have had to be fitted out of line. Also, a couple of them wouldn't hold the door shut securely - you could push against the door and it would open! Recently, my dogs managed to push yet another closed door open so I popped into Screwfix to get a replacement latch and this was the only 80mm they did but I found that the dimensions of teh replacements were slightly different meaning more fiddling around to get them to fit. I certainly will never buy any of these again even if they are cheap as they are not worth the hassle!"

"Got a house worth of these, big mistake.
Seemed fine on fitting, started to jam first day.
Got more expensive eclipse branded ones to replace from electricfix.

Cheap - and nasty
4 Dec 2010
By
, High Wycombe
"Very poorly made. Even when new you can feel the latch itself is grinding on the internals.
I bought 3, 1 seemed not too bad but the other two where awful.
I'd be surprised if any of them last longer than 3 months.
I took all three back and bought a higher quality latch.

For Property Developers only
28 Dec 2009

, Lincs
"I bought these thinking there wasn't much difference in tubular latches, they all look the same! how wrong could I be, I bought 10 of which 8 didn't function properly at all, they were all wonky and had a habit of sticking no matter how much wd-40 you sprayed in.
Unless you are a property developer and just need the latches to fill a house, pick something else otherwise you'll end up changing these very very quickly! The only thing that i can say that's good about these, is they are cheap. I certainly wouldn't recommend for any other reason."
