Garden Gate Ring Latch Zinc-Plated 152mm
Very poor quality
This latch is very badly designed being held together by two circlips that on my gate pulled out of their shallow-cut grooves immediately I tightened the mounting screws.
The same thing happened with the replacement so I returned it for a refund.

Poor quality for the price
An item I will be returning.
Not as in the picture - there are some small differences.
No idea why the design uses circlips to hold the handles on - most ring latches do not - and this seems a weak point.
A fairly basic design, but quite well finished. But not nicely enough to justify the cost when I could get a HOT DIP galvanised equivalent quality for half the price.

Don't buy this
Very poorly designed (especially the keep). Fell apart and cannot be put together again securely. I would hope that Screwfix stop selling this product. The item was fitted to a new gate installed by a tradesman.

Wished I'd read the reviews prior to purchasing. Item is poorly made, screw holes are not countersunk so dome headed screws required
