Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Antique crystal doorknobs I used these for some crystal doorknobs with square spindles. I had read on some discussion boards where others had stated if you had square spindles you were out of luck. Found these on Home Depot website, ordered with fingers crossed and they worked like a charm! Now all our interior doors have working crystal doorknobs! February 5, 2011

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 26, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Needs some modifications to work The opening for the spindle was undersized, so it took a fair amount of filing to get my spindle to fit in the opening. The unit was also a bit longer than the original, so it had to be ground shorter. August 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by specialized part Old houses still required maintenance and repair. It is nice to restore rather re muddle. October 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great fit Wish they came in silver, but they are a great fit. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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!!!! March 12, 2014
