Rated 5 out of 5Â by Neelam Elegant Lock with Lifetime Mechanical Warranty
The set arrived in meticulously packaged box. As soon as I received it, I got to work installing it. Each and every piece of this set from a tiny bolt/screw to the handle/deadbolt is of top quality. Its base finish is Venetian bronze with very thin streaks of gold color which adds a lot of character to this set.
The set comes with a template providing surface level guidelines just as the installation steps. However, installation paper does provide illustrations that moderately help you during installation.
Since I was replacing my existing deadbolt and door handle, I did not have to make deadbolt holes and this set had no problems fitting perfectly in the existing holes. For me, installation literally took less than 15 minutes. The deadbolt lock has a spade shaped cover which somewhat protects the lock internals from moisture; it comes with a smart key so you can re-key the set yourself and use your current key which is awesome. It also comes with an extra door handle so you can install it either on left or right handed door.
This set is sturdy, looks beautiful and adds elegance to our door. With lifetime mechanical and finished warranty, you canât go wrong.

This lock replaced my garage door handle and deadbolt. My previous door handle had a built in lock along with the deadbolt lock, so I had 2 locks on the door. It did not cross my mind at all until I was ready to install this set that the door handle of this set does not have any lock, the only lock you will get in this set is the one with the deadbolt. For some, itâs a trade-off to be looked into. On a separate note, the lock quality of this setâs deadbolt is better than the lock quality on my previous handle and deadbolt combined.
The curvy part of the door handle jets out a little too much so if you are installing it on a door with window on the side that happen to have a sliding door then the handle might rub against the sliding door every time you open/close it.
Included instructions manual is more of a chart with drilling and installation illustrations. If DIYing then take your time to understand these illustrations and installation process will go easy.
If you are not making deadbolt holes in your door, then you only need a screw driver to install entire set and it should not take more than 15 minutes. To make deadbolt and handle holes, I would recommend hiring a professional to avoid any damage to the door.
Included smart key let me re-key the lock in less than a minute which in fact was very convenient. An additional door handle is shipped with the package for either left or right handed door installation. The cover of the deadbolt lock gives it a distinct look. I am very happy with its quality and appearance. It certainly will last me many years.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TomBC Very Safe Product!!! Great Design!!!!
This is our Second one. The first was destroyed by an attempted break-in. But it held!!! Even with peaces and parts broken off it, it never came completely off the door, which might have been enough to discourage the perpetrators. Highly, Highly recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by k7czf Love this!
This looks great on our new front door. The finish is great quality, and was easy to install. We like that the deadbolt keyhole can be covered up as we get some interesting weather occasionally. The key turns very smoothly, nothing sticks, and it's a nice weight. We haven't tried the key making function yet but love that option as well.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by JillNez Worked great until we took it off to repaint our door
We recently purchased this handleset and loved it. Then our painter removed it to repaint the front door. Now it seems to have reset the key somehow because it can only be locked from the inside. The outside key lock won't work! What can we do about this?
