Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin Works well on older sliding door
This latch was an almost perfect replacement for the latch on our very old sliding doors. We had purchased a similar one from another vendor which broke almost immediately, but this one has held together so far and feels much more solid.
(1) Ours at least came with only the standard hook, and our door needs the longer hook. We were able to remove the longer hook from the previous latch and install it in this one (a perfect fit) and the latch now works perfectly.
(2) While the latch comes with an optional keyed lock, it is not preinstalled and nowhere in the instructions does it explain how to install it. Since this is for a back walk-out basement door in our case, we elected to avoid the risk and left the keyed lock out.
