Security Series Polo Privacy Door Knobset
Was the match I needed
The big box stores no longer stock the chrome inside/brass outside door knob models, which I needed to match in this 25 yr old house with bathroom remodeling job. So it was great to find it in stock and ready to ship at Handlesets.com; for which I have a Builder account through the affiliate Build.com . Shipped and arrived promptly.
Only difference is that the knobs in original house had hidden screws behind the escutcheon and this new version has exposed screws through the escutcheon plate - at least on the interior side.

Perfect Customer Service
Oddly enough, I found it impossible to find this finish in my area...The product itself is quite reliable. I have used the "polo" kwikset knobs for other home projects but not in this finish.
I would say these knobs are not designed for commercial and/or high usage doors but are more than adequate for single family homes.
I cannot say enough about how well Handlesets processed this order. Handling and shipping time was extraordinarily fast. I most definitely would recommend both the product as well as the seller.

good looking, but bad quality
These locks are very attractive, and I like the ball shaped knob, however they are HORRIBLE Quality. The knobs are hallow, but that isn't a big deal. My biggest problem is that my kids are always breaking in to my room in the morning, because if you twist the knob hard enough then it just opens. Therefore, they don't truly provide privacy. Another thing is that the screws are on the outside, and are exposed. Yeah, it is cheap and looks nicer then the tylo knobs, but still they are bad. A privacy knob I would recommend it the Dexter by Schlage Corona Series, they look exactly the same, and appear to be better quality. They are still hallow but have a better build. If you have all the money you want to spend then you can get any schlage knob or lever. Most Kwikset locks are cheap and you might as well start out with a good quality lock instead of replacing it in 6 Months. Overall, I do not recommend this lock.

I could deal with exchanging the product for the nicks and scratches it came with, but I did not like the design of the handset screws being on the exterior handle. I've never seen handles with the screws on the exterior. For security and aesthetics this is not preferred.

Kwikset knob set
I bought this to replace a twenty-year old, worn out passage set, It looks the same, but is enough smaller that it feels strange in your hand. This was the only place I could find the right shape and color. Transaction went smoothly and delivery was quick, Thanks

The finish is very nice and it seems durable. This is exactly what I was looking for in a chrome on one side and brass on the other knob set and it finished off the bathroom perfectly.

Got 'em quickly and installed same day. No problems replacing older tarnished knobsets. They really look great and both me and my wife are very pleased.
