Signature Series Hancock Privacy Knobset
High expectations and just as expected
I purchased three of these to match identical doorknobs that were not locking, and one locking doorknob that was broken. Our home was built in 2006 and I was probably overzealous in my desire to perfectly match the original doorknobs. Two types of the same brand were returned to the hardware store due to subtle design differences. These were perfect in every way. I even replaced one on a double door to a bedroom and it sits next to an original from 2006. You cannot tell which is the newer hardware. The pictures on the website were accurate and extremely helpful. I received exactly what I was expecting. Shipping was great and I am a happy customer. I will be back again when additional home improvement needs arise.

Oh Handle.. How I love thee..
This is as easy as insallation gets.
Comes with all the hardware you need for any type of install.
Gives a very cool effect of having the sanitary looking chrome on one side, yet having the fine more sosphicated look of a dark bronze on the other.
Kwikset is diffently a great company, so the name alone could sell this product.

Quality and easily installed.
Shipped fast. All parts included for any type of installation. Feels solid and closes smoothly. I got the matte black which goes well with the wrought iron we have throughout the house. MUCH cheaper than the wrought iron handlesets I could find.

Great door knob
I was looking for a door knob with clean look ( no screws) and solid quality & feel (on a budget) this Kwikset 730H fit the bill. I highly recommend this product.

Great product and delivered fast
Easy transaction, fast delivery. High quality construction and precision made parts for a smooth operation. These do NOT have the cheap rattly loose feeling some other products have.Following the instructions, it was a simple process to install.. very simple.. amazingly simple.. Ingenious design, basically push it through and twist it to lock in place. Brilliant. It took me twice as long to remove my old knob than it was to install the new one. These locks and knobs are made to high standard and you can tell by the precision parts and solid construction. One thing to note to buyers that isn't mentioned. You will probably need a small sharp wood chisel for the strike plate and the latch. This is because this product is shipped with a stronger heavier gauge metal that is slightly thicker and can cause the door to rub. Its a quick easy fix with a sharp wood chisel and small hammer. Even something as simple as the strike plate screws are made better and stronger. I ordered about a dozen different knobs and latches and there was one small item that was mixed up in shipping but one phone call and it was fixed immediately and cost me nothing.

Satisfied in all respects
In my finding the door knobs I wanted on line at a much better price than I could in my small town I was still uneasy but thought I would try. This was a pretty major purchase for our home improvement project. I found the hardest part of the purchase was waiting on the shipping. Shipping was fast and all got here safe. I was just impatient to get them on the doors once I had ordered them but that is me. They were as stated in the information and were very easy to install. They also look great on our freshly finished knotty alder interior doors. I got the black and though it has only been a few months of use they still look new. Initially I had gone with an oil rubbed bronze finish in another line and another vendor and its finish had rubbed off in the first 2 - 4 weeks. I would recommend this product and handlesets.com!

Signature Series Hancock Privacy Knobset
I restored my bathroom in my 50 year old home. All cabinet knobs, towel bars, paper roll holder, soap trays, faucet, etc. in the bath room are polished chrome. The door knob, hinges & door stop are all brass. To keep everything the same I finally found a polished chrome door knob, (which I have received & installed, looks great), and door stop, (which I am still waiting for). I only need to locate polished chrome hinges, (3 1/2" with 5/8" radius corners), then my bathroom will be complete. The chrome door knob changed the appearance of the whole room. The rest of my home has brass hardware & knobs, but 99% of the time the bathroom door is open which locates the door knobs inside the bathroom which now is all the same, except for hinges & door stop. The installation was rather easy & simple with no exposed screws in the door knob makes for a clean looking job.

Kudos to build.com for a broad range of products and an easy purchasing experience. Not so kudos to Kwikset. These knobsets were purchased to match ones I installed 13 years ago on another level of my house. The new knobsets are much more cheaply manufactured than the original sets. While they look nearly the same, materials and cost have been excessively reduced to the detriment of long term durability and reliability.

We are very satisfied with Handlesets and the fast ship time. Everything arrived exactly as we ordered. The very first knob was just a little time consuming to install but after that the rest of the installations went well. I'm very happy with the Rustic Pewter and I'm especially happy that I saved money over the big box store prices! I would recommend ordering online from Handlesets to all my friends.
