Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FreeSpirit BEST ENTRY KNOB EVER INVENTED!!! With push button lock!
This is my favorite entry knob - I won't use anything else! These last forever! Just push the button on the inside knob collar before leaving the house and the audible click tells you the door is securely locked. Not like the standard twisy knobs where if you don't get them in the right position, someone can wiggle the handle to unlock your door! These knobs have never failed me! You won't regret buying these knobs!
I used these Weslock knobs for 12 years at my old house and 14 years in my new home. I'm finally replacing the front door set - still works but it is finicky about how deep to push the key in before turning. But my other 4 locks still work great after 14 years! I'm buying a new set for the whole house to ensure that I will have enough of these knobs to last until I die. The other reviewer might be right - Home Depot may not have the tools to rekey these locks, but I don't care. I'd pay anything for these knobs to avoid my frustration with those unreliable twisty knobs on the handle that everyone sells now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bexarliving Great product at a great price
The product was easy to install. I was replacing the same product that was worn so all the holes lined up exactly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by camrose Nice lockset, wrong latch type
I wanted to add a lockset to the door between my garage and house for added security as it originally had only a passage set.
Since Home Depot does not actually specify which type of latch set they are sending, I wrongly thought that I would get something that would work with a drive-in setup or a mortise style setup. This was not the case. My doors are all drive-in type and the lockset I received was mortise style - with the flange - which would need the door modified to fit the flange. I checked the page several times to see if I had made an error and found that I had not; there is nothing on the page that even mentions the type of latch being provided.
A local locksmith gave me a used latch set, but it jammed when I installed it - probably why it had been replaced. Then, I tried the state rep for Weslock and they have never called me back. Finally, I called Weslock customer service and they agreed to send me the correct part, but told me I should have specified when I ordered from Home Depot. Unfortunately Home Depot doesn't give you the option when you order and if you're like me, you probably don't think they'll be sending you a lockset that isn't suitable for your application. I'm not even sure they could have got it right if I had made a note anywhere in the ordering process. I haven't received the drive-in latch yet, but assuming Weslock sent it, I'm sure it will be here soon.
I did have the set rekeyed and the tumblers turned around to match the door swing, something that the builder of my house could not be bothered to have done as my front door set has always been upside down until now. That part is annoying as I've used other brands' locksets that were not as difficult to adjust for door swing, but it can be done with this Weslock one, so I can't fault them completely for it.
Still, the lockset itself is fine, matches all the existing locks in my house. Good quality, but hard to find matching sets because they are not really sold in retail establishments, rather mostly online which means if you need one in a hurry, you're out of luck.

This is a great doorknob! The brushed bronze looks so nice! I was not used to a entryway doorknob with a push button to lock it on the inside. I have gotten used to it and I like it now. We only have to use our key to lock the upper lock when we go out. Weslock is a great company! Home Depot should sell these in their stores! I highly recommend buying a bolt lock from Weslock as well to go with this doorknob, it makes a nice set.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mta65 great
great finish, has a "gold" type of feel when looking at it. weslocks are very hard to find locally. home depot did not have the tools to rekey it so i had to go to a locksmith to get that done for additional money.
