Tubular Latch Polished Nickel Effect 76mm
Quality tubular latch
I bought this latch to replace a cheaper quality latch that literally disintegrated and rendered the door locked in the closed position. Luckily the tradesperson who fitted the door was no exponent of the 'penny joint' principle and it was relatively easy to open the door. Goes to prove, however, that buying poor quality products such as the previously installed latch could cause significant headaches due to lack of reliability. This latch was not cheap, but obviously of much higher quality: I could fit it with peace of mind! To give the latch a 5 star rating for performance and reliability, I would wish to review in 20 or 30 years time .... or leave this as a task for my son!

Hard to differentiate between the latches, nice build but the spring is not strong enough in them for the heavier door handles

Good value latch
I chose this latch as others received poor reviews.
It has a nice smooth action and was easy to fit.
I've rated at reliabilty at 3 stars as its been fitted for only a few days. I did add some lubricating oil before fitting.

Really disappointed in this product. Was not satin finish and also had eclipse branding engraved all over the part of the plate that would show. Took back to store who were amazingly helpful. Their stock of same product didn't have
branding on but was still shiny not satin finish. The man at store couldn't have been more apologetic and helpful. Really good service let down but very poor product. Shame as bought them to go with satin chrome door knobs which are great and will now have to source from somewhere else as can't put door knobs on.
