Does the job satisfactorily
Bass Player Chris - 6 months ago
I bought this to replace a similar item on my toilet door. After many years (15+) it was starting to get a bit sticky. I also bought some to replace the old, old, catches on the other internal doors in the house. The problem I had with installing from scratch was that the recommended 22mm drill does not make a hole large enough for this to fit. I had a lot of work to do with a chisel to enlarge the hole enough. I've measured the diagonal of this latch, it's 24mm, no way is this going to fit a 22mm hole. I've bought a 25mm bit, and they fit this hole fine. My doors are 35mm ~ 1.5" which leaves adequate thickness, if your doors are thinner, you may have a ptoblem.
Not the most robust door catch

Bought this to replace another not so robust door catch which broke the previous day. Its OK for now but I suspect it won't be long before I need another.

I thought this would be direct replacement for a latch which had become faulty. Unfortunately the repalcement latch must now be metric rather her than imperial. The rebate had to be increased with a chisel. Not really a complaint, the previous latch had lasted more than ten years, but I didn't have the tools to enlarge te rebate.
