ERA BS Night Latch Polished Chrome Effect 60mm
ERA BS Nightlatch
A very good quality lock although it took longer than planned to fit as it required repeated adjustment to stop the spindle snagging. This was a retro fit for an existing lock though.

Excellent product at best web.
Love ERA products and this is no exception plus SF offered a fantastic price.

Lock's OK, fixing are not
Instructions say if your door is 45mm or less thick you might need to cut the bolts short. There are pre-scored grooves for helping this with a hacksaw.
My door is 44.5mm thick, so I accidentally knackered one bolt (too long, reached the end of the thread inside the face plate, stopped and sheared at one of the grooves. So I carefully cut the next one. Then I cut the other bolts where marked but this made them too short!!! So I had to chisel 5mm out of the inside of my door all over to make things work.
Furthermore, instructions refer to "the 4 wood screws". A plethora of screws are supplied. It didn't matter anyway, they were all soft as butter and the head stripped off the first one before I got it 3/4 of the way in. Got that out with pliers and used some goldscrews I had around instead.
As others say, the lock is a bit clunky but works so far. Looks well built. Time will tell but the screws and bolts supplied are terrible and instruction a bit dodgy!

Great secure lock
This lock feels and looks very well made, upgraded my previous lock and my door feels a lot more secure now...and I prefer this Era lock to my previous Yale one...and the price at Screwfix is very good too
