Select Heavy Door Bolt Brushed Satin Nickel 102mm
Fancy, not functional
The looks are about the only thing going for this product. From the images it looks fairly substantial but the reality is different. As with 99% of products from anywhere the fixings are poor quality so that's to be expected. The bolt is an extruded 'C' shape profile and the keep to match. Unless the two are perfectly aligned it is difficult impossible to lock it. At least with a round bolt the end is bullnose and acts as a lead if not quite in line. The most annoying thing about it is the handle. It is loosely fixed to the bolt allowing it to rotate when in the closed position to effectively lock it. This is an ok idea in principle if the handle was a good fit and it felt positive when you turned it. In actual fact it wobbles around as does the bolt inside the body, giving the whole thing a very cheap feel. I never thought I would get frustrated with lock but there you go!
Pricey-poor performance. Give it a miss.

this is the most useless bit of kit i have ever purchased from screwfix. the quality is so poor the lock wont close then when you do manage to close it it wont open again. the engineering is appalling

This catch looks fantastic and is finished to an exceptional standard, but it has a few limitations. If you want to use it vertically at the bottom of a door, the sliding bolt can not be locked in the up/open position, so every time you want to close the door the blot has to be lifted or it strikes the receiver.
