Single Robe Hooks Polished Brass 50mm Pack of 5
Product doesn't match catalog
Good value for the price. However, while the paper catalogue implies that these are made of solid brass, (it says "brass construction"), the package itself says "Brass effect", which is not the same at all. Other hooks (eg 93268 and 90008) that are made of Zinc alloy with a brass finish , are identified as such (Die cast Zinc construction), A gentle scrape on the rear of one of the hooks showed that they have brass plated on a while metal core, and not solid brass as you are led to expect. I really wanted a solid brass hook for durability, and was prepared to pay for it. ( For the avoidance of doubt, no experience with any of Screwfix's Zinc alloy offerings, experience based on breakage of existing fittings of unknown provenance in new home).
At this price it is not worth the hassle of driving back to the store for a refund, but I do wonder if the product specification has been changed and the code has remained the same? The catalogue says "fixings not supplied" , but they are.
Performance and reliability ratings are meaningless when you have just bought the product.

Good value for money. Solidly made and well finished. Screws supplied have rather soft heads - easily damaged.

Good practical robe hooks
The 5 hooks supplied were a little variable in size, but not really a huge issue. I was not expecting any fixings to be provided, which was just as well, as the 10 screws that came with the product were of poor quality. However, the hooks were well finished and good value.

A good quality product that's solid and has a long life in front of it. The only thing that I found could have been better quality were the wood screws that were supplied with the hooks, however, the average handyman normally has a selection of screws in boxes floating around his tool store so this shouldn't deter anyone purchasing this product. Top drawer product, buy with confidence.
