I bought two of these as I urgently needed to secure an external cellar door at the house of a recently deceased relative. B&Q had the advantage of including fixings, saving me time and effort of getting them separately - although more details on the website would have been helpful. I had intended to buy a different bolt in a different finish, but they all seemed to be unavailable in my local store so I ended up with these 102mm, in black ones.
So, having read the reviews for this and similar bolts, I can tell you...
You need a knife to open the vacuum-packaging.
The base of the bolt isn't flat; rivets and swages (or what ever they are called) protrude about 2mm - but this didn't seem to be a problem.
The holes for the screws are about 5mm diameter
The holes for the coach bolts are about 7mm square
The shoot (the sliding piece) is about 11mm diameter
The screws provided are black, with slotted round heads, fully threaded, about 4mm diameter (8 gauge?), 25mm long wood screws
The coach bolts are black, about 50mm long, with the thread running approximately half the length, the square section measures about 6mm square, the thread is about 6mm diameter - it isn't a M6 thread. The nut is about 11mm across flats - one of my 11mm spanners doesn't fit, so maybe it is actually 7/16"?
The supplied bolts weren't long enough for my use so I used some longer 'proper' M6 coach bolts - thread diameter just under 6mm, square section just over 6mm, nut needs a 10mm spanner - these were a better fit in the square holes in the bolt anyway.
The holes for the padlock are about 13mm diameter; I couldn't manage to manoeuvre the shoot past the padlock when using a padlock with a hasp diameter of 8mm (padlock I used has one of 9mm).
I didn't use the keeps supplied, instead I drilled a 12mm diameter hole in the door frame, which seemed to work. The end of the shoot was flat to I put some pencil lead on it and smudged it against some tape I had put on the door frame to mark the position.
I would've bought a better/more expensive one if I could find one, but all the usual 'retail park' retailers only stock cheap ones - but maybe they are all adequate enough...
good strong bolt
