Eclipse Double Sprung Mortice Latch Electro Brass / Satin Chrome 76mm
Better than cheap junk, but...
... I've had two out of two fail on me.
The latch protrudes from the cylinder slightly which enables it to be rotated to suit left or right hanging doors. When fitted the cover plate prevents the latch from rotating, however over time the latch has loosened up and protruded through the cover plate and then can rotate... This then gets stuck and the latch gets stuck.
On one occasion the latch rotated slightly when the door was shut, which got stuck and prevented the door from opening. This happened to the kitchen door when I was away on business and necessitated a locksmith being called out at Â£90... So not good.

Quality mortice latch
* Quality latch and fixtures supplied.
* Mechanism moves smoothly after some WD-40 is applied.
* Screws supplied with fittings are of a poor quality - several heads stripped when used and in the end I used some good quality wood screws instead.

Easy to adjust, positive to operate,an ideal option
to use either brass or stainless, will match most door sets.Use a 28mm drill and it slides in easy.

Good quality latch
Bought this to replace a very cheap latch which kept sticking. Thought I'd spend a bit more money and noticed the quality difference. Installed very smoothly and operates very well. Worth not buying the cheapest.
