To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It *looks* like it would do the job but it lasted less than 45 days on a door that I open 2x a week. The hoop is seeemling connected to the base with tin foil as the whole part snapped off and did little to no damage to the base itself.
I had to use my own screws as the ones included would not set this in the door firmly enough.
Incredibly dissapointed in the product. I'm not sure why this would cost more than $5 with shipping.
I would not recommend this for exterior use and only for an gentle use interior needs, though not at the current price.
This is odd. Whoever designed this clearly didn't install it and try it before manufacturing it. It will only work if you cut the slot at least 1/2" wider, although it would be best if the slot ran the width of it. This item will not work out of the box without modification. It is well made out of hard steel and actually comes with quality screws. Would have been a five star but for the design flaw. I probably should have returned it but instead I cut the slot wider so that it will work. The bummer is that it will probably rust now because cutting it damaged the nice black finish on it. Oh well!
This gate lock latch works very well. I work this as a way to add a little bit of storage security to a storage ottoman. Installs with a brace. all of the needed screws are included. A simple drill is all you need for installation. Once bolted in it stays in place very securely. With the added lock it certainly does a great job at keeping the kids and nosey houseguests out.
I'm putting this on an old chest and I didn't want something big and bulky that would detract from the craftsmanship of the chest. The black color makes it even stealthier. I will most likely be purchasing another. It was nice to purchase something that was exactly as described and shown in the picture.
Needed to add a padlock to a cedar chest. This works because it hinges, which was essential for me because the chest lid overhangs the side instead of meeting flat. Took me maybe 5 minutes to install, didn't even need to pre-drill.
