Hancock Keyed Entry Single Cylinder Knob Set with SmartKey
Excellent Entry Knobset
Installed nine of these handsets between two houses over the last two days. I really like the clean appearance and comfortable feel of this handleset. Feel really good also about the security provided by this model as well. The interior side of this handleset has concealed screws and the inner handle can be tricky to install if the ring on the back of the interior handle is not fully seated against its stop. Only had one handleset that was not seated properly and a quick push with a flat bladed screwdriver bit corrected the problem. Handlesets.com did an OUTSTANDING job of rekeying my locks at no charge - although the "Smart-key" feature is quite simple to perform if you desire to use it.

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. It was easy to install and it looks great.
I would definitely recommend getting your locks from Handlesets.com as well. We replaced 9 locks and all of them were keyed the same and we received 7 keys so we have plenty of extras. The best part was I ordered the locks on a Monday, used their free shipping on orders over $199 and the locks arrived on Wednesday. The only thing that is a little odd about this product is that the interior knob is slightly smaller than the exterior knob.

Attractive finish, solid hardware.
I bought several of these to replace existing brass knob sets. Because these ship with all of the hardware and give you options of rounded and squared corners on the latch plate it made installation easy. The instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. The finish is very attractive and the hardware is solid. I would definitely purchase this set again. I had my entire order keyed-alike and was not disappointed. Everything matched and worked great.
Product was packed well and shipped promptly. Great shopping experience.

I bought five of these and four have of the five are messed up. When the handle is locked it stil turns about 1/8 of a turn.You can feel it slip inside. Called the manufacturer and was told they were defective but that she had never heard of such a thing. Yea right.

Updated Kwikset Door Knobs
I purchased the Kwikset 740-HS knobs with the Smart-Key feature to replace weathered entry door knobs on my house. The best features are the larger knob contours and the ability to change my keys anytime I want without needing a locksmith. Local leading home improvement stores only carried smaller contoured Kwikset knobs and not the Smart-Key feature. Handlesets.com was easy to deal with and delivered product promptly. I highly recommend this on-line source.

Exactly What I Wanted
i wanted a very simple, classic looking doorknob in black; found the model i wanted in stores but they didn't have it in black; i found it at handlesets.com; it is perfect for my front door; looks really nice and feels very solid; also it is one of the "smart" series so i didn't have to use new keys; just changed it to fit my current keys. i'm very satisfied with it.

Purchased 10 exterior locksets to replace 35 year old Quiksets. The new ones are very smooth to operate and the Smart key option is wonderful. The price was very fair and we received our order quickly.

Great looking and very stout. Best knob in the house. Replaced and antique and it looks and feels like it will last until it is one also. good job.

Bright and Shiny!
These door knobs are easy to install and we love the shine. The lifetime warranty on the finish is reassuring that they'll stay bright and shiny.
