Rated 1 out of 5Â by Hulf Can be pushed open
I fitted one of these to a new door and discovered that a firm push opened the door without turning the handle. The bolt is a loose fit in its case and if the gap between the striker plate and door is 2mm or more the bolt twists and retracts under moderate pressure, e.g. a dog or child leaning on it. It works best surface mounted without rebating in the faceplates. With a 3 or 4mm gap it is unreliable.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Fontaneroplombier generally OK
This was a replacement for a not very old, but very worn, catch for a bathroom door. As others have experienced, had to open out the corners of the hole in the door as the barrel of the original was more rounded. The square hole for the handle shaft was just too small at the edges at one end, needing slight easing with a file. Perfect alignment with the handles and the existing striker plate. I re-used the original screws, so no views on their quality.
As there was no obvious sign of any lubricant, I applied some bearing grease to the mechanism before fitting. Can't complain at the price.

Very good value and just the job as a replacement.
It's a latch, it fitted perfectly the one replaced.
