Got a house worth of these, big mistake.
Seemed fine on fitting, started to jam first day.
Got more expensive eclipse branded ones to replace from electricfix.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by fatbellybinky Very cheap but poor quality
I bought a few of these a while back when I replaced all my downstairs doors and had to take a few back then to be exchanged because they were so badly made. Typically the tube was twisted or the collar that takes the square shaft would be skewed meaning that the door handles would have had to be fitted out of line. Also, a couple of them wouldn't hold the door shut securely - you could push against the door and it would open! Recently, my dogs managed to push yet another closed door open so I popped into Screwfix to get a replacement latch and this was the only 80mm they did but I found that the dimensions of teh replacements were slightly different meaning more fiddling around to get them to fit. I certainly will never buy any of these again even if they are cheap as they are not worth the hassle!
