Works great, highly impressed
As above, I wouldnt say it takes five minutes took me an hour or so... Great quality. Minimal tools required I may just have been luckily tho.
Instructions are very well guided, I had to file away some of the door plastic on the exciting door hole to make the new piece fit ( the piece where the lock goes) but other than that went in well.
Box from screw fix was abit battered but product perfect and new.
Tip tho......... When you replace the strip on the frame not the door, I put my new where the old went and it left a small gap when the door was fully locked, enough for a draft and noise to get through. Just screw the top, bottom and middle first and test before putting all the screws in make sure it's nice and tight but not stiff.
Also some of the tiny screws ( Allen key ones ) will stop the door closing when testing I never needed them so never used them as sometimes you don't, it's in the instructions.
Hope this helps, highly recommended would do all my doors front and back but abit costly, changed because I had too other one broke.

Old lock broke so replaced with this unit. Easy to fit even if you have basic DIY skills. Markings on the unit helps with the installation.

What a life saver!
I'm a bit selfish as I often benefit from reviews but don't write them very often.
However I had to write one for this product. I have a 20+ year old Anglian front door and I knew the lock was on it's last legs. I tried in vain the other day to get a few more months life out of it and the lock broke internally whilst I was outside trying to fix it.
Short version is I found this kit and was expecting it to not fit my door as it so old. It actually worked perfectly and was easy to fit and has saved me the expense of a new door which is what I had resigned myself to months ago.
It is also so much more secure than the mechanism it replaced. Despite locking myself out when the old mechanism broke it was all too easy to break in with a small crow bar. That was with both the top and bottom bolts in the secure position as well.
The new mechanism has mushroom bolts and roller cams top an bottom and a hook in the middle. Plus of course the latch and standard deadbolt with it.
