Rated 4 out of 5 by pudding ease of use
These handles are easy to use and excellent value for money. The locking mechanism is very easy to use even for very young children and the safety lock on the outside is very useful when you've got little ones in the house as they cannot lock themselves in! They are also easy to attach to even the flimsiest of doors.

I wanted two of the item and only one was instore. I was told to come back in a week. Two days later the item arrived in the post. I was delighted by the unexpected and prompt service. Thank you, Homebase. The product was exactly what I wanted in terms of quality and price.

Easily fitted, I put a light compression spring behind the lock to make the action smoother

I dislike the design of the privacy set, especially the design of how it locks the movement of handles. When locked it does not hold the handles tightly, with firmer pressure you can still open the door, even if the snib is in the locking position.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GHOG Poor Design.
This product has a serious design flaw. The rectangular base of each handle has an offset hole where the lock snib fits, this would normally be counteracted by the handle on the other side of the door. However, the problem is compounded because the handles making up the pair have identical bases instead of being "handed" or being a mirror image of each other.
This prevents the handles from being aligned with the edge of the door on both sides and the lock snib and the slotted safety device on the other handle will not fit flush with the handle surface. It may be possible to force this into a compromise position but even on a budget range a product should be fit for purpose. This product fails this criteria. Pick another type of handle not this one!

Rated 3 out of 5 by DIWhy? Spindle too long
I bought this to replace my downstairs toilet lock when I redecorated. It looks really nice for a value range. Worth considering as locks aren;t cheap and if I'm replacing the whole house, that soon adds up.
The thing I wasn't please with is the spindle that connects the two handles through the door is too long. So unless you have a really thick door the handles don't reach the door - I had to hacksaw the spindle to a shorter length and glue the spindle to the lock (the glue part because I cut off too much).
Worth looking at the sets as well if you have several doors to do.
