Noted* TY. I will be needing these soon

Good price, have used Urfic before. Just ordered 9 for the house as we have brass handles (which I don't like - I prefer the silver look) and 2 were recently broken. Going to swap all the non locking handles out in the house. Scorchio!

Just noticed the W/C locking ones are 1/2 price too, just ordered 3.

Well spotted OP. Ordered five.

Picked mine up last night. Nice finish, the handle itself feels very solid/premium.

yep picked ours up today really pleased , nice and solid not cheap and nasty !!

Arrived. Hadn't appreciated that these units are secured by two through-the-door screw/bolts as opposed to the usual four conventional screws (well, usual in my experience). This means that the two holes will need to be drilled very accurately i.e. so that they are horizontal, parallel & spaced correctly otherwise the holes in either side of the door will not match the holes in the backplate :-(

Drilling horizontal/parallel and well spaced is easy if you take a little time - you need to lay the handle over the door with the shaft through, straighten the handles on both sides, mark up the holes - drill about 2/3 through one side, do the other 1/3 from the other and they should match up in the middle.

Fitted 4 of my 11 today, the downstairs handles (3 normal and a lockable W/C version). The longest and fiddliest part was cutting about 8mm off the through-door bolts with a hacksaw - they're too long. Then work the screw/nut sleeve over the cut end a few times to tidy up the thread.

My doors are 1 hour fire-guard, so they're about as thick as a door gets. The thin one for the downstairs toilet needed about 15mm off and about 25mm cut off the thumb lock shaft - tripled the time it took to put these handles on a door with existing tube latches.

The handles feel very chunky and premium.

4 doors to do on my first floor tomorrow.

Thanks for the advice Monkeyhanger75 but have decided to return these as it's not worth the hassle.
