Tavaris Single Cylinder Sectional Contemporary Handleset with SmartKey, Exterior Only
Looks Great Good Quality
This product looks great and is very solid. Installation was a piece of cake and it re-keyed to my original key in about 10 seconds. It is important to make sure that you are re-keying to Kwikset for easy re-key.

Great look, great product
We painted the door and installed the new handleset with a Vedani lever handle on the inside. Looks great, well made, and easy to install.
I needed to replace the existing handleset that had unusual measurements and handlesets.com helped me find a handle that would fit. They provided terrific service.
We really like the contemporary look. We have a California contemporary style house that had a medieval looking handleset. Someday we will replace the glass in the door.
Attached are before and after pictures.

We received this handle set promptly after ordering it from HandleSets.com. The package arrived in good shape. When our locksmith replaced the door handle, he admired the quality of it and stated, "You've got one heavy duty lock here and its beautiful." It should last a long time. We chose the brushed silver look and couldn't be happier, the modern clean lines are what really attracted us to this set plus aside from looking elegant, it is substantial in appearance. It compliments our freshly painted door perfectly.

Easy to Install
Overall the install was a snap. The hardware comes with detailed instructions and the only challenge is to drill a hole so the handle is perfectly aligned. Straight edges show all the installation flaws.
If anything could be improved, the cover for the mounting screw on the inside could be the same "Modern" styling as the rest of the handle. The cover choice looks to have been an afterthought and picked out of a parts bin.
Overall a great door handle.

The lockset was just as advertised
The lockset was quite easy to install. This lockset is an upgrade to the previous lockset. The other was a builders grade lockset. The kiwi set was a much better option.
I did have a bit of a problem selecting the backing plate.
The directions were not very clear Which plate to use. Eventually I was able to get the right backing plate installed

happy with purchase
HandleSets was very helpful with selecting the right product for my needs that would match existing indoor handles. The product arrived promptly and looks far more expensive than it cost! I couldn't be happier.

Kwikset Tavaris Handlesets
I really liked the style and look of this handleset. When I received it, I wasn't disappointed. It is heavy and built very sturdy. Installation wasn't too difficult and I am no handyman.
The only experience that I didn't enjoy was trying to order it online. The inside levers didn't come up on my computer as a matching set so the inside dummy lever was ordered incorrectly, but thanks to great customer service, they sent me the correct parts after paying an additional fee.
