Rated 5 out of 5Â by Derbylad21 Greta lock
Needed a replacement lock. Bought a cheaper alternative from the site but the lock was a few mill larger and wouldn't fit. Could have chiseled away at the door but it was simpler to get a lock that fitted

I was looking for a lock that complied with BS3621 and this one fitted the bill. I got a bit bogged down with measurements but in the end it was a straight swap. The only work I had to do was chisel the corners for the face plate as my old face plate was rounded and this is square but that went ok too. My only grumble is that the keys were a bit rough with burring still on the edges but just filed it off.

Replaced a fault lock of the same make. Easy to change the direction of the latch and fitted straight into the existing holes. Lock works smoothly with no problems. Only a 3 for reliability as the previous lock would only lock from one side

I bought this as a direct replacement for an older model, but hey, they have changed a lot of dimensions, including the screw pitch that fits the lock, but only by a couple of millimetres. What a pain to fit, and also the pattern of the screws on the striker box has been changed. Why?
The older model failed because the aluminium bit that rotates with the key was so soft it wore away after about ten years and so the bolt would not reliably withdraw. I discovered this fault after purchasing the new one, or I probably would have bought a better make. Also the keys on the illustration seem to be brass, like the older model, but hey-Ho they turned out to be cheap steel chromed.
