  • Not a front door lock

    Pros:  cheap, easy to install, reliable
    Cons:  no real secuity alone

    "Before I jump into this review I really have to point out that this lock is not to be used on a front door alone. You should only fit this to internal doors or front doors if accompanied with a BS 5 lever lock. These locks are so easy to bypass its sickening. You should see the look of horror on people's faces when I open them in under 20 seconds. As with anyone upgrading/replacing their own locks you must make sure you are getting a lock that uses the same backset. The back set on all traditional lock, bar some very obscure traditional night latches, is 60mm. Before you purchase a replacement lock you need to measure from the locking edge of the door to the centre of the keyway. The most common are 40mm and 60mm. Please make sure you have a 60mm backset or you are fitting from new before buying this lock. I'm a big fan of ERA locks. A lot of people seemed to view them as cheaply made, but I've always found them to be fairly sturdy. I will put my hands up and admit this is the very cheapest of the cheap though. I don't mean badly made, just cheap. The traditional night latch, as this is known, has seen its day, but still serves as an excellent lock for internal doors. The lock doesn't have a back plate, it just has what I call a cylinder hold (a small plate that you secure the key cylinder to) and then the lock body is screwed directly to the door. Installation should take only a matter of minutes for an experienced DIYer. Note - the main thing to remember when fitting any lock is to make sure the cylinder tail is not protruding very far. You really only want 2, or at a push 3, sections poking through the otherside of the door. Any more and the lock will fail."

    "The lock was used a handful of times but is now unusable as it can not be openedwith the key. Beware buying the cheap option - I shall now have to buy a better quality replacement - a complete waste of money."
