Arlington Single Cylinder Sectional Handleset, Exterior Only
Nice But Large
I purchased this handleset to match the style of the Kwikset SmartCode/SmartKey Touchpad. Unfortunately the holes on my front door were drilled too close together for the handleset to fit (not my fault, stupid builder). Rather than replace the door and some of the frame, I figured I would try for a different style handleset. Believe me, the 5.5 inches center-to-center is a MUST. I wish I had known this before I ordered so I could've avoided the restocking/return fee. I gave four stars because the flat piece above the thumb lever really doesn't need to be that tall.

Problems w/key cylinder
I purchased this product because I had the exact same 10 year old rusting handset on my door that I was varnishing. Upon opening package, box containing key cylinder rattled. On opening that, found the entire key mechanism in pieces. I installed door handle because I to replace it on a door just varnished. I had to call a professional locksmith to come put together the key cylinder and mechanism. He informed me that several pins and springs were missing. Although he was able to repair it, I had to pay an additional $65 dollars for his services to my home.

Arlington Handleset 800ANLIP-15A
Lasted almost 4 years. Completely wore out so now ordering the replacement. I figure 4 years out of anything that has moving parts and gets used everyday is pretty good. I selected this handle because it was what the builder installed on the front door and it was much easer to install the same thing so no refitting or drilling necessary. It lasted about 4 years as well. This will be my 3rd handleset in 10 years.

Kwickset? You must be joking, this was one of the most complicated things I ever had to out together. Granted I had both interior and exterior to put on. The handle itself was fine, but the lock refused to go on. I probably spent two and a half hours and I still cant get this thing on. Nothing is labeled, terrible small print directions and definitely not worth your time or money.

I had an existing Arlington handleset and was getting a new door so I thought I would get new handles. My old set was about 8 years old.
Kwikset has really cheapened the quality of it's product. Fit and finish not as nice. No screws holding it together. Snap locks that seem poorly built.
I should have kept my old stuff and tried to polish it up.

I AM VERY SAD I WAS NOT ABLE TO INSTALL YOUR PRODUCT, BUT THE HANDEL THAT I CURRENTLY HAVE IS SMALLER AND THE HOLES DID NOT MATCH, SINCE THAT SIZE IS NOT AVAILABLE ANY MORE, I HAD TO CALL SOMEONE TO FIX IT INSTEAD OF REPLACE IT LIKE I WAS PLANNING TO DO. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO EVERYBODY.

I was impressed by how solid the handset was. I was having to replace what looked like the same handset that came with my home that had worn out. This set looks like it's good for the life of the home. I never expected a doorknob to feel so good in my hand.

I bought this to install in our new door - it replaced a roughly 30 year old Kwikset handleset that was still fully functional. It's sturdy, smooth, and easier to install than the old models.

Not only does the handle look good and function nicely, but the delivery was extremely efficient and prompt! I would recommend this product and its seller.
