Nice looking handles that don't lock very well,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Victorian Scroll Polished Chrome Privacy Premium Door Handles 115 x 40mm (Misc.)
Once I'd worked out the difference between "privacy" and "bathroom" locks (which was confused by the fact I actually wanted the handles for a bathroom), I chose this set to replace an existing pair of handles whose locking spindle had been lost.
The handles are a good fit, look very nice and have a smooth, robust action. Unfortunately the locking spindle doesn't actually lock the handle very well. You can feel it engaging with the catch, but applying more than very slight pressure to the handle pops the lock out of the way allowing the door to be opened. Fortunately for us the handles were for a guest bedroom en-suite, so it's not *really* essential that the lock is secure, but if I were choosing handles for a bathroom that actually needed to be locked, I'd go for the kind with a separate deadbolt (i.e. the one normally referred to as a "bathroom lock"). A bit more work to fit, because you need to drill separate holes for the latch and the bolt, but at least it would stay locked.
