Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skid Worked great to convert vintage knobs...
Over the years I purchased multiple vintage crystal knobs and brass escutcheons. These latch mechanisms worked great with the old knobs and square drive shafts. The problem I found was the holes in modern doors are larger than the old doors. I had to fabricate larger plates to cover the holes and sandwich them between the escutcheons. Overall they worked great.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by nv88s Needs attention to exact fitting dimentions
The spindle and shaft size is inaccurate....
The designers had a great idea but did not
pay attention to detail.....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helen replacement latch for spindle style knobs
It was exactly what I needed. The quality is what I expected for the price. I am happy with my purchase.
It took the amount of time I was told. And I was notified when it arrived at the store.
There was no problem at the store when picking up my product.
I would order again from home depot and I would order this product again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bicoastaljakes Nice quality but does NOT accommodate old square spindle key way
Very nice latch. However, we were told by the order desk that this latch would work on our old square spindle key way. The diagram looked promising. We needed them for our 1924 apartment in NYC. We replaced all our doors with custom doors (ordered from Home Depot) and wanted to use the old key ways with the glass knobs. Once installed, the key ways were too big to fit into the opening. We were, though, able to use a small file & file our key way spindle enough to fit through the opening of the latch. It all worked out in the end!!!!

Old houses still required maintenance and repair. It is nice to restore rather re muddle.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by stardust129 spindles should be suggested...latch not compatible with old spindles
I don't know if this is a good product yet...I haven't been able to install them because they are not compatible with old door knob spindles. Now if I want to order spindles from Home Depot online, I have to buy something else because it would be under $25.00.
