Why not? Was your privacy compromised?

Because, you can't test if the door is locked...

You can test by turning the knob, if it is locked then it won't turn
Are they okay for outdoor use? (ie for the shed door?) Thanks

When you turn it, it pops out and unlocks, no?

Don't understand why you would test the lock every time you would lock it? I don't go and check if the car is locked once I have pressed the lock button or turned the keys in any other lock.

If these are the ones without the keys then no. I've got a few of these, the privacy ones are for the toilet/bathroom, you lock from the inside. If someone is stuck in there you stick a penny in the slot and you open from the outside. I also have the ones with the keys. The keys are very thin so you can pretend you're David Blaine with ease. Stainless steel so no rust, not sure about water going into the greased up innards though...
How do you check if its locked? And do you know if its working? If I lock a car, I can try it's door to confirm its working correctly...

Not if it's keyless entry...

Turning the handle unlocks it though.

I'm not OCD or anything, but when I'm in a bog, it's nice to know someone won't burst in...
Ah, we have similar ones (domed no concaved) and these don't unlock when turned if the lock is turned, I thought these would be the same.

You are correct.
I have these throughout my house, I bought them to match the existing 70's ones when I built an extension.

They do not unlock when the handle is turned so it's easy to check it's locked.

The old 70's originals and these work exactly the same, you need to twist the lock button to lock/unlock it. From what I remember the American ones are completely different, you press the button in to lock and twist the knob to unlock which makes the button pop out.
