Rated 1 out of 5Â by Hargate 4 broken bolts
Bought 4 of these to put on cupboard doors. I should have headed the other reviewers. The knobs kept falling off. 1 snapped, 2 bent and the other sheared the know off. 4 out of 4 failed.
Given that these seem to be the same issues as others have found, why does Screwfix continue to sell them. Making a decent bolt is not difficult.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by markdespark Very poor quality
I bought a couple of these to reinforce the security on my front door, they were advertised as heavy duty, they look beautiful but in practise are cheap and rubbish,badly made, as soon as I fitted one, I tested it by trying to open the door and it snapped straight away.I got a refund but this has been a waste of my time.Why don't screwfix sell a good heavy duty door bolt?

Installed this bolt at the bottom of a pair of French doors, static side to lock it in place to the frame. Looked very good, but that is as far as the positives go. On the negatives the bolt is not very good quality. The first one be bought snapped when the other door slammed shut. The second bolt is currently bent. Also due to the design of the bolt the door rattles. Currently looking for a replacement bolt that looks as good as this one but works.

Save your money. They may look nice, however the handles unscrew and fall off. The bar has little resistance and slides too easily, I have already been locked out of my house by my dog knocking the bar across! therefore had to remove.
