All our BROLITE real Bakelite pieces are based on original designs from early to mid-20th century and this privacy Turn & Release is no exception. It was originally designed and made in the 1930's by Phillips. This is a close replica of it; the main difference is the diameter of the neck. (We decided to make it uniform with the whole of the BROLITE range of knobs and handles. This therefore means that we have the option for it to be fitted to other backplates using a different assembly clip for the 5mm spindle)
The release facility is by using small screwdriver placed in the slot in the end of the square spindle in the centre of the outside plate. Rotate the screwdriver and hey presto, the door is released.
(You may need to trim the spindle down with a hack-saw so that the end of the spindle is flush with the Bakelite back-plate. This is how the original Philips design was back in the 1930's so its really authentic.
This privacy turn is available in Black and Walnut - please select from the drop down.
If not already fitted in the door edge, you will need to fit a bathroom mortice deadbolt. Commonly, the Turn & Release are positioned at chest height.
It is supplied with a red/white vinyl adhesive disc which can be used or not as desired.
Back-plates: 62mm x 46mm

Extremely expensive for what it is!, 9th Oct 2017

Reviewer: Andrew T

Extremely expensive for what it is, had I realised the cost I would not have bought it!

Not fitted yet, but assume that it will be up to the good standard of similar fittings, but not worth the money!
