3000 x Satin Aluminium Escutcheon Standard Key Hole Lock Cover Plates Donated to Cabinz CIC by Recipro Wirral / Wickes to be adapted to draught excluders
We have these for sale now for £1.00 for a packet of 2 (including 2 black plastic fixing backing plate & 8 screws) .
We are experimenting with adding a split reused rubber draught excluder panel to the inside of these cover plates to cover door deadlocks .
The rubber is cut from old inner tubes from the local bike shop, then a slit is cut in the middle for the key to pass through.
We hope to have pairs of the draught excluder for dead lock keyhole ones for sale within 2 weeks for an estimated £2.50, or you can make your own for £1.00 as above
. This blog post will be updated with a guide to install.
We welcome suggestions for alternative use
