5L SCDL 5" Backset Deadlatch
Just what I wanted!
I had to order a special size dead latch for client's front door. The latch had to be offset by 5 inches and I thought I was never going to find such a product (such that the door was 30 years old). Well, my hopes were answered by this company not only having what I needed but from the time it was ordered to the time it was in my hand was, like, 3 days (even though I had it shipped regular mail). WOW! Great service! I'd definitely use this company again for any of my needs with this kind of product. Thank you for such a great response!

5L SCDL 5" Backset Deadlatch
I needed to replace the deadlatch in a 30 year old door set. The only thing wrong with the 30 year old one was the fact the key had been misplaced years ago and I wanted to be able to have access to the door from outside. I ordered the deadlatch and received it within 3 days and it installed seamless and works perfectly! Great product, excellent service. I recommend Build.com highly.

When we found we needed a longer latch for a front door we were remodeling, none of the "home improvement" stores could help us with the longer reach we required. Web hunting, we found your site and the Exact item we needed...worked perfect.
Thanks for thinking about us folks working on older homes with mechanical stuff that was made 40 years ago....

A renter broke the doorknob on this now very rare lenght of door latch. We had nearly given up and resigned ourselves to having to buy a new door, which was also an odd size. Thank goodness that we were able to find this Kwikset Latch and with a new Kwikset knob we were able to repair the door in just a few minutes.

Hard to Find, found
I was very happy to hear that Handlesets.com carrys, this 5" deadlatch, I could not find it at any local hardware stores, even the big national chains. The latch was delivered quickly and it was easy to install with a new Kwickset lock set. I have had the latch in for over a month now and have no issues with it.

Worst Product Ever
Three separate units have broken on me. The latch will jam for no reason and will require the entire door to be removed in order to open the door. If I was not required to use this based on association requirements, I would never use this product again.

Our old latch spring broke and would not extract the lock. Could not find a suitable replacement at any commercial store due to length of the latch assembly. Replacement latch very easy to install and fit perfectly.

everything you need.
This product seems to have been forgotten and put on the shelf marked antique. I was so happy to find this here so I didn't have to order a new door.
