Victorian Mortice Door Knob Pair Satin Nickel Effect 51mm
not fit for purpose...
My dad had to fit 9 of these, there was much swearing and cursing. They were not easy to fit as the holes are hard to access as the knob is in the way, and when fitted they don't have an internal spring so don't ping back the locks... Cheap and cheerful. Look nice but not really fit for purpose...

Not fit for purpose
I bought four of these but have only fitted two. Apart from the difficulty getting the screws in; the knobs I received were so stiff they don't allow the catch to work. Having tried everything to make the knobs turn freely I've now given up and are replacing them with something better.

Bad workman, tools..
Product looks great now, but was a nightmare to fit. The knob is as wide as the base making it very difficult to screw the screws into the door and additionally not helped by heads that disintegrate easily. By using a long thin screwdriver from an angle I eventually got an acceptable result - but far from perfect.

Happy with the handles although out of 6 pairs most were loose and rattled about.
The screws provided were SHOCKING! Machined so shallow i couldn't get any screwdriver to turn them...that plus the angle I had to screw then in basically just chewed up the heads...
I know that times are hard but you definitely get what you pay for...and these aren't worth the money!!!
