Codelocks Push Button Lock Non-Handed
These locks a the bee's knees. They were fairly easy to install. They look great, have high quality and are very effective. It is easy to change to a code you find easy to memorise and they leave you feeling confident that all is secure behind the door you have installed the lock on. No need to keep any sharp keys in your pocket either. A great buy as the lock is worth every penny.

Not sure about these
I have fitted these locks for a couple of years and they are easy to fit and work well..... for a while that is.
The springs in them break very easy and the mechanism wears quickly. I think they are suited to light use.

No Good for Wooden Doors
I bought this lock from Screwfix and had this lock on my door for just under a year. It worked fine for 11 months and then stopped working with the 'bolt' not 'springing back' accurately into the faceplate.
The product has a 1 year guarantee, so after much correspondence codelocks agreed to allow me to send it back to them freepost. On inspection they said the bolt had become damaged because the door had likely moved a bit and damaged the mechanism.
To quote Codelocks in their correspondence to me: "when the door is closed the latch bolt enters the strike plate, the small deadlocking plunger/pin must never enter the strike plate (the plunger/pin is located on the flat side of the latch bolt). This sits on the surface of the strike plate, is pushed in, and deadlocks the latch out. If there is misalignment this will put pressure on the latch bolt and over time cause it to be kept in bind, eventually becoming slightly bent and sticking in the latch barrel. Is the door slamming shut? Has the door dropped slightly and catching on the door frame? This will most certainly cause misalignment of the latch, and put the latch into bind."
The 'tolerances' are very small and in my opinion therefore only suitable for a door and frame that will not move at all (maybe a metal door).
As we all know, wooden external doors will move a little in their lifetime.
Codelocks would not replace the lock without charge under their guarantee.
Therefore, if you have a door that might just move a tiny bit - be warned this lock is not 'Fit for Purpose' and their 'guarantee' will not cover you.

Looked like a tidy product but fixing screws were far too weak and sheared at the slightest torque. Possibly a batch quality issue as so many people have given it the thumbs up. Will try again just to be sure as the door holes have already been drilled.
