Straight Door Bolt Polished Brass 38mm
Its a bolt...
I bought these for securing an outside door on my log store, I don't imagine they will last for ever but for Â£1 I can't really complain that much. the supplied screws are very small and don;t seem to be made of amazing stuff so I would recommend using your own screws if you have ones. The bolt doesn't extend very far from the holder only maybe 15-20mm max but Its just to stop the doors rattling in the wind so works fine for me. I would recommend something bigger if its for a bathroom door lock or anything where it may be pulled at.

Much cheaper than elsewhere, the 'base' is quite thin but interestingly these ones do not have a thin slot down the back which makes them a bit stronger.

Very Poor Quality
Very unhappy with these bolts. One set had a part missing (the part where the bolt goes in when locked), and the rest had a significant number of screws that were not formed properly - slots not deep enough to get a screwdriver in, slots that were so off centre that they broke when turning, and one had no slot formed at all! These were not the type of screws I keep in stock (they were brass and very small), so I couldn't just replace.
Screwfix need to get their supplier to improve their quality and quality control or choose a different supplier.
