Hey all
We have just moved into a new house with a uvpc front door, which is really nice. Only problem is we are used to wooden doors with latches, and we would really like to go back to having a latch type operation.

I am told I need one of these:

I have two hooks and then the centre bolt.

I would need to fit these handles if im right as well,
Would these be OK?

I need to measure my door to ensure I get the right size of both parts, could some one help by telling / showing where I measure please?

Look forward to any help / tips / advice.
