Rated 1 out of 5Â by entropy Diminished Quality.
The old versions of this handle were good (The door opening mechanism on the thumb handle has since changed and the newer handler is frankly just a piece of junk.)
The old mechanism was a simple spring (The piece of metal that held the thumb handle in place would occasionally come loose and I've learned to fix it.) However the new mechanism is a rank piece of garbage, it is by far one of the worst engineering marvels I've ever experienced, it seems to use some super-low-tension circular string (Getting at the mechanism is particularly difficult, as you have to bend open metal prongs to get to it) and in my experience when we had to buy a new one we unfortunately got the newer of the two mechanisms and it wouldn't actually lock the door after opening, so I had to salvage parts from the newer mechanism to fix the older.
To sum up; do not buy this unless you've lubed your door lock mechanism with unicorn blood so that it'll actually work.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Brian Great quality, easy install
Replacing a worn out old handle and a newer (2 yr old) but cheaper Kwikset deadbolt on the front entry. Installation was a breeze--the product game with all the additional parts and adjustments you could need--and the higher quality was apparent on first use. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars was it took longer than expected to be delivered and I only had to order it because in-store there were no options for a handle/deadbolt set with a double cylinder or just a standalone handle. But I was able to purchase at a significant savings so having to toss out the previous deadbolt and make new keys was worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Luci schlange handset
The handset is good guality and a real value. It looks great and was easy to install except for one issue. It was missing two small parts that are not essential but are necessary for a complete and accurate assembly. The missing parts now require a trip to Home Depot.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TucsonMike Great product - what I expected to get
This Schlage door handle and deadbolt was purchased online because the store did not have the double cylinder style available. Double cylinder is important for greater security and I was pleased to have the option available online with the same brand as the rest of my door handles in my house.
