Stuttgart Stainless Steel Privacy Leverset
Good buy for the money
While there are more expensive, smoother operating lever sets, I am pleased with the finish and style of this one. I got the style I was looking for at a fraction of the cost for similar taste high end hardware. True the expensive stuff is mechanically smoother, but keeping on a budget, this is a great choice and most people will never notice a lacking in mechanical quality. I'd say this is half to one third the cost of similar products and I'm happy with the end result. The pic on the site doesn't show the two screws on the rosette interior but again, I'm the only one who would notice that in my home.
My only issue was the backseat didn't seem to be sized right but that could have been my fault... only took a quick fix of providing some extra space for the lock with a dremmel and all was good.

Great interior, poor exterior entry use
I have purchased many of the Stuttgart series and they are great locks for interior use or light traffic...... They do not make an exterior KEYED version so you have to use a interior passage and deadbolt combo.... The interior passage is not made well enough for a high traffic garage entry door.. 6 months and our handle shafwines broken. Do not use this combo specially if installed on solid core heavier fire doors... Just a warning.... Our solution was to switch to an electronic keyed knob.. Heavier in construction....

Good quality leverset
This is a nice leverset and looks and feels as if it's a quality product. It was on the high-side as far as price, but in the end, I feel it is worth it. I just wish there wasn't a wait time to get the product shipped. Apparently, these are built to order, which seems kinda of silly given how large the company is and the volume they do.

Overall, I am very satisfied with this item. I was disappointed that when I ordered it I was not informed it was on back order, which delaid my receipt of it. It was easy to install and I will order additional ones for the rest of my home.

Sophisticated and modern
After installing one of these sleek, rich handles on a new glass door I decided to redo all of the handles in the house. I am very happy with the look and only wish they made a keyed lock for the outside door. Highly recommended.
