Emtek 443 Reviews

Bad design, interconnect link broken in few MonthsI purchased Emtek 4313 handleset, together with the interconnect device Emtek 443 in february 2012. In october 2012, the handleset stopped working. When I opened up the handleset, I find that the rivet/screw which links the interconnect device to the handle is snapped off. The rivet/screw looks pretty flimsy and the asembly arrangement looks to be poorly designed.
Handlesets.com tried to shunt me off to the manufacturer, but after escalating the issue, they agreed to talk to Emtek and revert back to me.
Looks like a combination of poor workmanship/design on part of Emtek and poor customer service from Handlesets.com.
Not a happy situation for a customer who has spent 300+ dollars for a handleset.

Does not work properlywaste of money, does not work properly. I'd suggest to save your money and spend it on something that works.

We are not sure whether it has to do with our contractor who instralled the handle, but the deadbolt does not open all the way every time you press the handle on the inside to open the door. Everything is a little "soft" or "sticky" when opening; I don't know the right word to use, but it doesn't operate as smoothly as I hoped.
However, the handleset is beautiful.

Great addition to HandlesetThe Interconnect Device is a great addition to our Handleset. The door deadbolt and latch is a one step operation to open from the inside.

Favorite PartThe adapter is everyone's favorite part of the handleset. I added it to the handleset as an after-thought when the comment said it was good to include for families with small children. However, everyone's favorite part of the handleset is one turn opens the door and dead bolt. It really improves the handleset.

safety....butThe device makes the lock and handle very stiff to the degree that when the interior handle opens the door, the latch stays in. Opening from the outside causes no issues. Lube well before you install.

What is it really and is it needed?
A. This is a part that will convert a one piece handleset into a interconnected handleset. This means it will make the deadbolt and the latch retract when the interior knob or lever is turned. Interconnected devices are usually used as a safety procaution, making it easier to exit in a hurry. Great for homes with small children or elderly that might have trouble turning the deadbolt's thumbturn.
