Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SS Quality lock, looks really good with Schlage Camelot Connect deadbolt
I just finished replacing all my exterior door locks/handles and installed 2 of these levers. Got everything re-keyed at my local Home Depot quick and easy. Everything fit in the preexisting holes. Only hiccup was the first time I had to swap the handles, instructions could be clearer on the way the key/handle/cylinder all line up, and that the key has to rotate to the unlock position, then return to center to remove. Otherwise, easy install.
A note on the "safety feature" mentioned. When locked, the exterior handle will not move so this is normal. However, unlike my kwikset levers that also immobilized the interior handle, the schlage lever will allow you to turn the interior handle when locked, allowing you to open the door from the inside even if the handle was locked. This also unlocks the door. So you can't lock yourself out like another reviewer mentioned.

very easy to install and looks fantastic. I had previously bought a quickset, which didn't last a month...

I would never buy this product again. This lock has a so-called "safety feature” that allows you to open the door by simply depressing the interior knob regardless of whether or not you unlock the door or not. (This makes it very easy to accidentally lock yourself out when you mistakenly pull the door to without unlocking the device first.) This feature is not listed on the packaging and I was unaware of it until after I had installed it and re-keyed the lock to my original key. I called the company to find out if there was a way to circumvent the feature, but no such luck. Schlage claims the feature is designed to prevent you from becoming locked in your home in the event of a fire, but what it ignores is that you are more likely to lock your self out of residence. They also offer no justification for why they failed to mention the "safety" feature on the features on the box. Had I known about the feature at the time I never would have purchased it-much less installed it on my door.
