Things to take note of before buying.
Gap from door to gate
The push-pull model has slightly thicker body than normal handles and other mortise locks like H705. If your door has a gate at the front of it, you might like to check the distance between the door to your gate to be at least 7cm to ensure that your new door lock handle will not be smashing with your gate.
Opening direction of your door
There are two types of doors, doors that open inward into the house when opened and doors that open outwards. The push pull door lock caters to both kinds of door but do ensure that you buy the correct one, as they are non interchangeable. Else, you will have an awkward door that you need to maintain the push direction of the handle while pulling to open the door.
The design itself is pretty sleek. The choices of colour Gold / Silver is available in Singapore market to match designs of many different types of door. Normally user matches Gold colour lock with brown door. Silver colour lock for dark coloured door or door that comes with silver accessories like a vertical pull bar.
