Hi guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk and thanks for taking some time to take a look at one of our product review videos, and more importantly, the product that we have here in front of us at this moment in time is the Alpha uPVC Letter Plate, Letter Box or Letter Plate Sleeve that's designed to go in uPVC doors. Now, it doesn't have to go in uPVC doors. It can go in wooden doors but obviously the manufacturers have designed it to go into uPVC.


So, let's get on, let's have a look at it, and this is it here. On the outside, this is the outside part here. You can open this up here, you can see here we have a neoprene seal around the plate there. This spring is quite, there's a nice bit of tension on this so in those cold winter months you're not going to get much of a flap here on this letter flap, I must admit. It's quite solid. You can feel it there. So that's good to go!


If I was to split it open, the reason why it's got the sleeve in the centre is because some uPVC doors are actually quite hollow in the centre and of course you don't want the post falling down between the two, between the inside and the outside, hence the reason for the sleeve. On the inside here then, to get it a bit better seal, you can see that there's again a neoprene seal around the outside here, which obviously then seals this front part onto the front of the uPVC door, as you can see.


It has two fixings here. These are the fixings here. One there and one there. Now, the idea with these slits is they slide in and out of each other. If you can notice, I don't know if you can zoom out there firstly. Depending on how thick your door is, okay, you can then decide where this sits, so you don't have to chop any of this out. It's just a question is that you would move it depending on how thick your door is. The manufacturer claims any door from 38 millimetres, which is quite thin for a door. A wooden door in the UK is 44 millimetres should be an external door, so to do that, no problem at all. And up as far as 78 millimetres, so we'll do a range of uPVC doors as well.


On the inside flap, again, nice quality spring-loaded flap again and inside, then, you see it has a brushed area there as well to stop the drafts coming through in our cold UK winter months, especially when it gets really, really cold, so you know then there's a little bit of warmth is going to be held in from that. It comes with stand with two screw fixings and of course you may have to cut these then down to suit your particular door, so be mindful of that. You may have to chop them a bit depending on how thick or thin your door is. So there you go.


I may have mentioned, perhaps not, but they're available in white, silver, and gold on our website. I liken this, the build quality here is good. I would be more than happy with the build quality on this particular letter plate. I wouldn't have any hesitation whatsoever of using that for my door.


So there you go guys, another product review from us here at LocksOnline.co.uk.
