I purchased this door bolt as a replacement for the existing door bolt that was pushed in. This door bolt is stronger, looks great, matches the existing hardware (of a different brand). Although this door bolt is almost the same size as the one it replaced, it is a lot stronger. The retention pin on this unit is in a recessed hold with a spring. This is stronger that the through drilled of the previous door bolt. The old door bolt broke at the drilled hold. Believe this one can’t be pushed to breakage. Good price at less than half the original.
I ordered several surface door bolts in two sizes. It all came as I ordered it and in a very timely manner. The quality of the product appears to be very good.

Great & well built

Pros: Very well built. Perfect for exterior or interior use. Cons: No instructions (Yes, they're pretty much self explanatory), but there are 3 different receiver plates for various situations. Also these are best suited for solid core or solid wood doors. I wouldn't recommend for hollow core.
