Rated 3 out of 5Â by Kevin Get what you pay for
Lock arrives out of the box as RH so I had to dismantle the entire deadbolt assembly thumbturn to reverse to LH. That took the most time.
This lockset is $100 so you get what you pay for. Buy EMTEK or Bravura if you want high end performance. My lockset broke today so this was a must. The SmartKey feature is easy as pie so you dont have to rekey your entire house.
If you can afford to spend $200 there are many other options.

Rated 1 out of 5 Don't waste your money
Bought this item about 18 months ago for our front entry door and I now wish I would have spent some more money for more quality.
Here is the deal; 1. After about 6 months the finish on the dead bolt wore off and looked horrible. I contacted customer service and they very nicely sent me out almost a complete replacement which I was satisfied with. 2. Well this morning this door knob broke, the latch would not retract to hold the door closed. After my inspection I noticed a plastic piece had broken off and jammed the unit. Mind you, I had to remove the entire handle to fix the problem which in turn resulted in some of the paint off the door...frustrating. Anyways I luckily had the extra part they sent me previously and was able to quickly fix the part minus the paint from the door. 3. Upon installation I noticed the handle was pretty wobbly (I noticed this a few weeks ago but paid little attention to it as it was still working) and found the 2 screws holding the mechanism to the handle completely loose. (I have subsequently re tightened them.) Needless to say I find this product to be a waste of money, with poor quality, and integrity issues with the product found on the internet. Don't waste your money or time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mycloset Nice, sturdy and easy to install
Bought this to replace builder grade handles/locks that were looking their age. Nice sturdy lock, easy to install. Fit the holes from a Schlage handle and lockset. Rekeying very easy. Was easy to reverse lock cylinder.

What a fantastic entry door set! I have installed hundreds of door locks on my parents rental accounts and my own homes, but this one is almost unbelievable. You really do get what you pay for with this set. The metal is so much thicker than other common lock sets. The screws for the lock were hefty too. I have installed another brand of Grade 1 and I can tell you it was not built this well. Buy this set for peace of mind and a major upgrade to home security.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by yojamey I suggest spending a bit more for a lock set that will stand the tests of time

Definitely lighter in weight and less durable than the Baldwin locks we have all over our home.
I like the rapid re-key feature for use between tenants in a rental unit.
