My old lock was a Legge night latch which has been in use for 20 years but with a lot of use over that time has taken it toll. I searched locally for a Legge replacement but could not find one so then searched the internet and found the 727 at Safe. The service was excellent and delivery was on time. The 727 was slightly different from the old one I would say more superior and looked more expensive than the price paid. It was easy to fit as I just undid the old fittings and fitted the new 727. The tongue was a bit long so I cut it with a hack saw. I just followed the instructions that came with the 727. I am so pleased that I kept looking as I think the 727 Legge lock is well made and have have good security features such as being able to lock from the outside when you go out and the inside at night.

We were broken into our barn some weeks ago having used what we thought was a reliable lock. We were advised that the Legge 727 Deadlocking Nightlatch (44mm) from the Safe Shop was the very best product for the job. After buying at a good price, we fitted it to the door. It looks a very good heavy piece of equipment and am confident it will do the job and deter burglars. Although seemingly expensive at the time you pay for what you get and we certainly seem to have got something we can rely on. Would certainly go to Safe Shop again for any further products. They know what they are selling.

I bought to replace an exact same model which was fitted 2001 on a rental flat. The old one's deadlock had broken internally. The delivery was a few days so good. The new one had excellent polished finish and function and felt solid, coming with 5 pin cylinder lock and 3 keys . I thought this was a very good deal, but unfortunately the cylinder lock that came looked great but felt like it had a loose shaving of metal in cylinder mechanism, meaning when key was inserted it kept catching several times before fully in, however it turned fine. I bought a different make of 6 pin cylinder lock for £6 on offer elsewhere which still fit the Legge latch fine, they are fairly standard on sizes. I was probably just unlucky rather than them all Legge cylinders being like this.

Bought this as a direct replacement for an old lock so fitting was easy. The backseat is not common so there aren’t really any other options but it means the screws go in the same place and no additional work is needed. However, the new version uses less material than the old so everything is a mm or 2 thinner resulting in it not catching when the door is closed. The mechanism is also less fluid than the old one so when you open it the movement is quite rough. I guess they literally don’t make them like they used to.

It was really difficult to install. The lock does not fully turn but managed to still use it.

Needed this particular lock to replace the exact same one that had done years of service. Foolishly ordered the wrong width size so had to return and reorder which all went very smoothly including refund of money. So with confidence, I can say Safe have a very good website with prompt delivery and good customer service. The lock fits well, no problems so far and hoping it will last for a few years like its predecessor. Found Safe to be good value as well as one of the few places that had this particular lock that we could find. Thank you.

Top class lock. Was an exact replacement for one that had been on our door for over 20yrs and done Stirling service.

Has functions like deadlock etc.

I had to replace a faulty latch mechanism on a door that easily dated back from over thirty years ago. The dimensions were still the same and so a perfect fit was easily implemented. I even managed to retain the old barrel so could still use the original keys but have also kept the new barrel and keys just in case I ever feel the need to change them.

I have just fitted a 727 the problem is it will not deadlock from the outside as the key will only turn three quarters of the way round.
J Hill, Leigh
This lock is deadlocked from the outside by one full turn of the key. To do this you must ensure that the snib button on the inside has not been activated.

To install this nightlatch you will need a hammer, a chisel and a drill and will need to follow the installation instructions that are provided closely. For more detailed information, please follow the steps outlined in our How to fit a Nightlatch video.

I need a lock that my 92 year old father cannot lock from inside. Carers need access and he either leaves key in door inside or drops bolt, so carers cannot get in with spare key.
Anonymous
An ideal solution would be to have a 'Non-deadlocking' Nightlatch such as the Yale 91 - Standard Nightlatch (60mm). Because the lock cannot be deadlocked, entry can always be gained by the key.
