Customer Questions & Answers

how do I get my current house key to work with this lock ?

Asked by: jdube
If you take the cylinder, your key, and the key that came with the lock to your local Home Depot, a hardware associate should be able to help you rekey that cylinder to your existing key. Make sure to call ahead so you will know that the associate that does the rekeying will be there when you arrive.

Can I get a lever inside knob, and for a left-hand door?

Asked by: Ted
If you would like to have a lever instead of the knob that this unit comes with, you can purchase a hall and closer lever and use the interior component of that lever with this handle. If you should have any further questions, please contact our customer help line at 1-877-663-5625.

conversion to a dummy door handleset

I have a double door, I need to get 2 sets of the above, can I make one set into a dummy door handleset.
Asked by: Cecilia
You can purchase and install a second unit as a dummy set as long as you do not use the latches that are provided. You will have to drill your holes to allow the inner workings and screws to connect.

Will the dead bolt mount in a 1-1/2" diameter hole.

I have an older steel clad door with a 1-1/2 diameter hole for mounting the dead bolt. Will the dead bolt in the WILMINGTON POLISHED BRASS ENTRY DOOR HANDLESET mount in a 1-/2" hole? The cost of re-drilling the deadbolt hole to 2" makes this lock uneconomical.
Asked by: Doorman
Unfortunately, this deadbolt will not fit a 1 1/2 in hole. There is an anti-pry shield (security feature) on the back of the exterior piece that would prevent it for fitting the hole. However, if you would prefer NOT to use the anti-pry shield you can call 877-663-5625 and they can provide an exterior cylinder housing that will allow you to be able to use the 1 1/2 in hole.

Wilmington Polished Brass Entry Door Handleset is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 27.

I was replacing a 10yo lockset of the same model that had failed. The bottom end of the handle in the current lockset has a modified detail so you have to drill a new hole about 1/4 in lower. Other than that a simple exchange. All done in about 30 mins. Comes with 4 keys - that was an extra convenience. Good value compared to Baldwin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Had to replace my old door handle set and all I could find were replacement sets costing over $100, most over $120. I found this set online (not stocked in my local Homedepot) for half the price and could not be happier. Fit perfectly in the existing holes in my door. Arrived before estimated delivery date. Looks and works beautifully, not only would I recommend it to a friend, I already have recommended it to my neighbor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looking We dressed our front door up with this set to put our home on the market. I would buy a better quality set if we were staying. It's functional and eye catching. I'm happy with the purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks nice but doesn't work so well. This lock set was purchased to replace an existing standard one. Every part of the installation process had to be modified to fit this lock set. This took several hours. It unlocks easily enough both with the key and with the inside thumb turn. It comes with four keys which is nice for a big family. However, the latch which has only been in place for a week is already getting stuck inside the handle on a regular business. Also, it was much cheaper on-line than in the store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good in the door! Easy to install. Decent product. Easy to install. Not as smooth mechanism as I would have hoped but works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Easy to Install plus Great Price! I am extremely happy with my handleset. It is beautiful and it was quite easy to install; I did it myself in less than a 1/2 hour. I like that the bottom is secured all the way through the door to the inside making it sturdier. I think my prior one broke because it was not. Highly recommended and great value!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great value but not perfect I bought two of these for a duplex I'm rehabbing. Both doors are identical, steel covered with factory predrilled holes. Installation on both doors was a breeze with simple to follow instructions. They appear to be well made and they do look great installed however I am having an ongoing problem with one of them. The problem occurs only when the door is opened from the outside. Frequently the latch will not pop out, it gets stuck in the retracted position. If I give it a light smack with a block of wood it pops out. I've uninstalled it, inspected it for burrs, lubricated it and made sure everything is properly aligned in the door at lease six times but still it gets stuck every third or fourth time I open the door from the outside. Two weeks age I ordered a replacement, installed it and quests what... Same Problem. I see this as a personal challenge and I WILL NOT REST until I find the problem. Other than that I think they're a great value for the money.
