Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bamber Genuinely universal lock
My original door lock totally failed, and having checked out the cost of a like-for-like replacement (overÂ£100) I was relieved to identify the Yale universal lock as a potential alternative. So far I have not been disappointed. If you can use a drill and screwdriver this is a doddle to install. Took less than 1 hour to remove old lock and install this replacement up to the point of adjustment. Only problem, in my case, was getting the bolts to align with the keep plates. The keep plates themselves are fully adjustable and the problem has been resolved and lock works well. However on initial installation, if there is mis-alignment, it is not possible to identify the offending bolt/keep match. I'd recommend removing all the keep plates and replacing them one by one until that specific bolt is aligned. Then continue one by one - pity the instructions don't advise this. Also don't fix the screw in the central plate (where main door catch/bolt is) until you have adjusted that plate's position - otherwise you could find that the hole that you initially drilled into the pvc frame is now in the wrong place. Great money-saving replacement - don't be put off by the adjusting advice above - all becomes apparent - only mentioned it to help. Early days to give rating on reliability

Rated 4 out of 5Â by flashtest well designed but didn't fit
Mechanism looked well made with all the bits to install available. Unable to fit it due to difference between lock and spindle distance. Returned for refund.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gnasher70 Upvc yale door lock
Had to replace my door lock when the one in my door seized up. Needed one close to home and screwfix was very accessible so decided to plump for this one after reading the good reviews. Easy to fit if you follow the instructions and mine was a bit fiddly because I had to put it at a slight angle due to the shape of my door. Overall though would buy again if needed to and would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by S0R1 Good product
Good product, surprisingly easy to fit. I did have to adjust the opening for the main body of the lock slightly, but other than that it was very straight forward. I have only just fitted the lock so it is too early to comment on reliability but so far would definitely recommend this product.
