Signature Series Ashfield Keyed Entry Single Cylinder Door Leverset
Nice Quality but...
I have several of these handles (along with every other handle in the Ashfield Series). The finish and quality is outstanding. I have only two complaints: 1) the handles tend to droop over time (will not remain horizontal), and 2) the latch sticks, preventing the door from shutting when you push the door closed without turning the handle. Both of these are minor annoyances. The droop is caused by the weight of the handle over time, and is easily fixed by adjusting the handle and tightening the screws. As for the failure to close properly, it works if you turn the handle rather than just push the door to close--easy to do for everyone except for my teenage children. At first the sticky latch occurred on only one door (the most heavily used), but over time the same problem exists on at least three out of 6 handle sets--it does not happen to the non-keyed versions.

I love these door knobs!
These door knobs and matching dead bolt locks are exactly what we wanted and match our other bronze fixtures perfectly. The service from handlesets.com was excellent from their website to their customer service representative who called to check with me about a request I had made on the website. Shipping was very quick and I actually received the order a day before it was promised. I will be ordering matching door knobs for the interior doors as soon as we start trimming the house!

Excellent product and service. It would be nice to have more info about the Smart-Lock system to read online. I saw it in a local hardware store so I knew what to ask for, but I had to call and request it over the phone--no big deal.
