Rated 5 out of 5Â by Markthehaveagoer Cheaper than a new door!
Out door locks weren't working on the new house, and shelling out for a new door was not possible straight away. This system enabled me to refit the existing door with solid, reliable and working locks. Together with a new barrel, the door works great now and I have the price of mind that the multi fixing points hold the door firmly.
Easy enough to fit and does what you'd expect.
What more would you want?

I would recommend watching the YouTube clip on the Yale website first. That said it was quick and easy to fit. It took about 20 mins. I will be changing the cylinders today as they are the old type which can be broken easily.. Watch the video about "snap" locks and speed of burglary-Scarey!

Having had a quote for Â£528 inc vat for the supply & fitting of a new locking mechanism I thought I would try one of these.
It did eventually go on my old Anglia windows back door but it was a struggle.
Firstly I had to have a set of Yale door handles as the fixing centres on my old ones were not big enough. This meant drilling right through the door - though the plastic outer & steel inner frame.
I found that my door wasn't hung plumb and I had to adjust the bushes in the hinge however the top of the door still very slightly rubs the mechanism on closing.
I had to file down the stop blocks so the latch part sat flat on the door frame.
Adjusting the various door frame catches is time consuming.
Due to the multi adjust-ability - particularly on the frame part it is a mass of ugly little brackets and screw heads.
It did work it was cheap compared to what I was quoted, but I thought I would write this to balance the prevailing reviews that fitting these are easy - not in all cases.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DIYHARD Good product, easy to fit
Used this to replace an old Yale lock of a different design. The product was proposed to me by Yale based on the info I gave them and they suggested Screwfix as a seller.
Pretty easy to fit and the instructions were clear. Works well.
