Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ronny Not the discribed product
Description calls for a "Prime-LineHeavy Duty Non-Handed Security Door Mortise Lock Insert"
Reversibility is virtually impossible. The enclosed instructions give detailed guidance, however the product does not match the pictures or parts. An expensive Pain.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HomeDepotDude Reversible latchcholt seemed like a good idea, but not really.
While the reversible latchbolt seems like a great idea, in reality it is not. In order to reverse the latchbolt you have to unscrew the entire lock insert and as soon as you unscrew the last screw the cover pops off and the tiny springs shoot across the room. The next 20 minutes are spent trying to find the springs and then 20 minutes are spent trying to get the springs back in where they belong. Once you have done that installation is really easy and it is less expensive to replace the lock insert than the entire lock. I am hoping this lock lasts longer than the first one, as it only lasted 5 years. I would expect a lock to last pretty much forever, and that would include the insert.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Papa Replacement locking mech
My old screen door lock was hard to turn and lock or unlock. On further inspection the metal in the the slide bolt mech was worn out. I replaced it with this and it works like new now. One note and the reason it didn't get five stars is because you may have to drill another hole for the sheet metal screw on the face plate. On mine the here's we're not exact as the old one.

Reversing latchbolt was a little more difficult than expected. However I got it done after a few minuets. Reinstalled with no problem.
