Squire Die-Cast Steel Combination Locking Bolt 50mm
Purchased at the end of Sept 2014 and initially the lock was ok. Despite applying WD40 on a weekly basis the lock became very stiff and hard to move. Persevered until the lock became completely jammed in February 2015. No amount of WD40 would loosen it and the handle has now broken off in my hand. I now cannot open my gate!
The description says "rust resistant", I don't think so! Will be returning to Screwfix and do not want a replacement. I would rather purchase a different lock, one that works for more than 4 months!
My advice is to avoid this lock at all costs.

Sturdy locking bolt
Great sturdy product. Was easy to fit & use with clear instructions. Great alternative to messing about with a padlock & key.

Mine broke eventually
Worked really well for about 2 years. The lock now will not lock. When the bolt is meant to be locked you can just force the lock open quite easily.
I did grease the lock as it became very stiff after a year of use - not sure if related to the bolt not being able to lock now.
Also, I used this lock everyday on the morning commute, so it did see about 1200 operations before it failed.

Not the best quality. Bought and fitted four. Bolt could extend more, fixing screws could be longer. On attempting to set the combination on the fourth bolt the knob came off. It was still possible to set the tumblers and lock the door, but it cannot be unlocked!
