Ring Gate Latch Black 152mm
Not fit for purpose
The axle was too short, the internal shaft was un-fettled preventing the axle from seating properly. Within one week the latch keeper failed, the internal circlips failed, it started to go rusty. The turning became very sloppy very quickly and eventually failed with 2 weeks!!!! WE SHOULD BE COMPENSATED FOR THE BLASEN TIME WASTING FROM SELLING US THIS USELESS PRODUCT.
When I returned it the guy stood at the till next me said the same thing happened to the one he'd recently bought. The reviewer 'Bythecanal' is obviously very lucky!

This is well made and does its job very neatly. Easy to install and looks good.

Circlip on handle too frail.
This gate latch is a nice enough looking latch but the issue for me is that the circlip which holds the rear handle in place breaks too easily. When that circlip breaks, the handle comes off and no-one seems to sell circlips that suit (but then why should you keep having to replace it?).

Very poor quality
Fitted this product and it fell apart the next day. I took the part back and another part broke. I've got a replacement part for this but I think I will take the whole thing back next time I visit the store and go for the heavy duty latch. Sick of going backwards and forwards.
