Yale Universal Replacement uPVC Door Lock 35mm
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.

This is a great lock mechanism. Ideal replacement for a broken/damaged system. Easily fitted and quick to re-elign. Always a good reliable company manufacturer.

Check handle type first...
Opened pack once home only to read instructions and find that I need to buy new door handles as well! Note that if your existing door has separate spindles for inside and outside handles, you will not retain this feature when fitting this lock.
Also, the Uni-bracket feature on the keep was no good for my frame - had to spend half an hour with powerfile removing plastic to get the keep to fit, and had to remove all Uni-bracket parts.
Alignment was fairly straight forward, after all the above.
