Does the job, but nothing to celebrate

Bought this latch in a hurry to stop our garden gate swinging in the wind. It just about does the job, but only just. Easy enough to fit and screws all worked well, but has already begun to rust after only a (mostly dry) month of use. Additionally, it does not always catch when the gate swings shut, and you often have to go back and manually open the latch. Works for now, but expect we will be replacing it shortly.
Would not recommend

The latch mechanism isn't shaped correctly so that it doesn't move and open when the bar hits it. Meaning you have to manually open the latch in order to properly close it each time. This has caused damage to the paint work and now rust. Only within a month of use. As others have mentioned, had experience with other Blooma products and all are terrible.
Did not work

I bought the more expensive "Antique Finish" Blooma latch as it looked slightly less "tinny" than their basic latch. Unfortunately it would not wok (the rod would not fit into the latching mechanism). I could have modified it with a file but would then have destroyed the "Antique finish". I'll take it back for a refund and buy something more "agricultural" trhat works.

I only had this product for just over a month before it broke in normal use. One of the securing bolts sheared off.

Bought with matching T-bar hinges. Sorry things aren't what they used to be. The metal is flimsy and the screws are a total waste of time and others had to be used.
