Traditional Single Cylinder Deadbolt
Nice looking, some flaws
First: Be careful of your door thickness! If you are installing this on a thinner door (1-3/8") you will need to order a spacer #8297 (usually about $12). This deadbolt ONLY fits 1-3/4" thick doors without this spacer
Secondly - if you install this on a door that is frequently used, people will have a tendency to hold the interior knob on the deadbolt while closing the door. Eventually the knob will pull out of the deadbolt (and come off in your hand). It is only press-fit into a splined sleeve inside the cover. It can be pressed back into place, but will keep becoming looser and looser over time.
Other than these two flaws, the product works and looks very well.

HandleSets.com is one of the best companies we've ordered from. Their selection and pricing is outstanding. We've had some questions and they have always been quick to respond.
I would recommend this company to all of my friends.

Baldwin Traditional deadbolt
This product is of excellent quality and design. I like the quality, finish and the style. I needed to find a product that would look good with my 1920's hardware. I needed to either put a deadbolt in the door or have a carpenter fill the hole in the doors left by the previous owners. I installed 4 of these and think they look good with the hardware. I am very happy with the results.

New, Higher Standard
As with our new lock sets it's hard to be disappointed by this upgrade to our home. With each piece obviously engineered to a high, more robust standard, the operation of our doors and locks is much smoother and direct, even pleasant. Everything fit the with minor modification to the door jam and frame.

I bought the Baldwin Traditional Single Cylinder Deadbolt. Very happy with the purchase. The deadbolt was shipped very fast and arrived in perfect condition. I was also impressed that the keying was done right to match the doorknob. It's a nice feeling when a company gets it right the first time.

Bought Baldwin dead bolts along with egg and round knobs and deadbolts to replace old sets of sagging Schlage lever handle hardware. The Baldwin sets were of high quality and easy to install as replacements. No regrets.
Dead bolts were a direct replacement and of high quality. Great match for both the round and egg style knob sets. Positive locking and unlocking action, easy to use, no problems.
HandleSets did an excellent job of keying all the sets I ordered the same, and they provided 2 sets of keys per knob & deadbolt using Baldwin blanks - not cheap Schlage aftermarket blanks. And, the keys look like they were made from keycode, not on a generic keycutting machine so all the keys are precisely cut and work exactly like the originals.
Communication with HandleSets was very easy and smooth. Delivery took a little longer than I expected, but wasn't a problem because I wasn't in that much a hurry. Everything was packed and shipped well - no problems.
I would definitely recommend HandleSets and Baldwin.

My friend replaced all the handsets and locks and Las Vegas stores did not carry enough so I ordered one. The locks install easily and are very high quality -- much more solid feeling than the competitors. Easy instructions for novices and even easy to get out of the box!

exactly as expected
Great looking, Easy to install, works perfectly. I especially appreciated the ability to buy several units keyed identically. In my past experience Baldwin's shiny brass lasts for ever without requiring maintenance so I expect the same from these units

Locks can be so ugly but this little lock compliments the matching door knob beautifully. It is well made and the lock works smoothly. Baldwin is high end and you feel it when you operate the lock.

Good product, but poorly keyed by Handlesets
This is a very nice deadbolt. However, the free keying by Handesets.com was done incorrectly, causing the key to get stuck in the lock. I had purchase a re-keying kit to fix it.
