Looks lovely on my new front door, but I've had to have it professionally rekeyed twice since I purchased it two years ago. Just suddenly, it will not accept the house key. I paid $169.99 for it, add two home visits of $55 each for rekeying, and I could have just spent the additional $$$ for the other brand.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NoBullMan A note of caution...
Much higher quality than the other in-store handle sets, and it comes with a lifetime warranty. However, if you are replacing another brand, the bottom hole on the inside of the door may be in a different position and leave an exposed hole in the door. There is a fix though. There are two screw holes in the ouside bottom piece with two different threadings. Baldwin only supplies the larger top thread. The thread pattern for the bottom is the same as the screws that dold the inside handle, but you will need to obtain a much longer screw. I would give it a 5 if that screw was provided.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Excellent Baldwin Handset
We took advantage of the one day sale received it right away and installed it same day....the bottom piece required a new hole from previous handset so I skipped it and still functions fine. the handset is heavy...twice as heavy as the old one which makes the front door seem like it is a solid door.....the whole door seems heavier.....I'll never use another brand....if I can afford it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TCreviews Better than the last doorknob
The only thing I could ding them for was the instructions. The drill hole for the handle was slightly off center, ugh.
Compared to my Schlage entry lockset which the handle fell off repeatedly after only one year of use.
Schlage: Plastic interior pieces, thin brass layer, corroded easily. Lightweight. The doorknob weighed in at 67 grams. Broke easily, when repaired, broke easily again.
Baldwin: Metal interior pieces, thicker lay of brass, nice weight. Doorknob weighed in at 341 grams.
I'm now shopping to replace all of my interior doorknobs with Baldwin products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Easy to install and enables a single key to be used for all of the external locks.
Easy to install and enables a single key to be used for all of the external locks; was a part of my replacement of several external locks. Rekeying is easy and they look good. The quality was much better than any of the 9 other knob/key combinations that were replaced. Although not stocked on shelves, delivery was prompt.

Easy to install. Smartkey feature is an extra. Appears to be quality made. Should not have to replace for a very long time.
