Interconnect Device for Emtek Handlesets

Must be installed from the factory and cannot be ordered without a handleset.

With this safety device installed, your deadbolt and latch will retract with the turn of the interior knob or lever, not requiring you to manually retract the deadbolt with the thumbturn.


  • Adapter to convert select brass tubular handlesets into interconnected units.
  • For use with Single Cylinder Handlesets only
  • Ideal for homes with elderly persons, small children, or others who might have a hard time reaching or releasing the deadbolt.

Emtek 443 Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad design, interconnect link broken in few Months I 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work properly waste of money, does not work properly. I'd suggest to save your money and spend it on something that works.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from safety....but The 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Part The 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to Handleset The Interconnect Device is a great addition to our Handleset. The door deadbolt and latch is a one step operation to open from the inside.
