ERA Bathroom Lock Chrome Effect 26 x 64mm
Only fitted this 3 months ago and has failed. Fortunately nobody was locked in the bathroom at time of failure.

No More Wobbly handles
Having suffered from wobbly handles on all my bathroom doors for as long as I can remember I spotted these on Screwfix.
You can fix the handles with ironmongery bolts rather than piddly little screws and they work an absolute treat.
These are not only fantastic value but make the job 10 times easier - and you'll only need to fix them once, rather than suffer the ear bending every six months that the handles are coming off!
They come in 2 sizes which are the same size as the standard lock so a straight replacement is a sinch.

NOT 26 mm
The lock that I got was a 22mm wide faceplate. The lock I was replacing was 26mm, so that's why I went for this product. I didn't realise until it was in the door; it said 26mm, so why should I believe otherwise? Beware if you need a 26mm lock. To be fair to Screwfix, I took it back and got a refund with no quibbles.

Quality costs a little more
Bought this after struggling with the cheaper one Screwfix sells. More expensive, yes - but much more solid and you don't have to disassemble the lock to reverse the "hand" of the bolt. Can't comment on reliablity, yet, thus an average rating.
