Chelsea Single Cylinder Sectional Handleset with SmartKey, Exterior Only
This handleset looks really nice on my front door. I purchased it in venetian bronze. Works great, no problems with installation. Only thing I don't like is the lever on the inside of the deadbolt is 'up and down' or vertical when locked while all my other Kwikset deadbolts are horizontal when locked so I always have to think about whether that one's locked or not. May have been a way to change that but didn't try, didn't want to risk scratching up front door by taking it off and putting it back on again.

This handleset installed easily and the quality of the lifetime polished brass exterior is excellent. My only disappointment was with the quality of the materials used on the interior parts. These are a lighter weight brass and don't look or feel as substantial as the exterior. I ordered lifetime polished brass keyed entry knobs for two other doors at the same time and found the materials to be the same - excellent exterior and lower quality interior.

Exceptional handle set
We bought the lifetime polished brass handleset and it is gorgeous, heavy feeling, and much better looking in person than online, though the picture does look like the product. I had some issues with installation but called for help and was given the manufacturer's help number. All this took was about 2 minutes and the issue was resolved immediately. This was my first time at installation and it turned out well. Thanks HandleSets!

The replacement never went so easy. Looks fantastic on the front door.

Great Door knob set
I replaced my aging Kwikset brass door knob set with a new set from Build.com. The ordering software correctly recommended that I purchase the inside knobs in addition to the regular keyway and dummy handset. I had everything I needed to install the replacement set. The set took little time to install. The new rekey feature quickly set the new lockset to my old keys. The new finish looks like its made of gold. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Good solid quality and the smartkey option is fantastic.
Finish color was much darker than expected. I purchased this to replace an identical handleset that I purchased several years earlier. The finish on the previous set was ruined by housepainters who had used solvent to clean it. The new set is more like antique black, rather than the antique nickel that I was expecting.

I am very pleased with my $1000 purchase from this company. The doorknobs are beautiful, great quality, and the shipment was quick. Would highly recommend.
