Round Privacy Bed/Bath Pocket Door Lock
Great product, easy to install.
I love this product because it is so easy to install. Just buy a door off-the-shelf pre-bored and the handle pops right in. The "hardest" part is chiseling out the jamb for the strike. I have installed 10-15 of these and they work flawlessly. The privacy lock is easier to operate because it has a much larger handle to lock the door than the tiny one a regular "notch-in" style pocket door lock.
To get the door out of the wall, just press the end of what looks like a dead-bolt with your finger and the handle pops out.
I wish they made a version with a key lock or at least a handle on each side.

Pocket door privacy lock
We looked for quite some time to find a good lock for a pocket door. We settled on this one because it looked nice and seemed to have a strong locking mechanism. (Our previous lock allowed the door to be opened from the outside even when locked.) Once installed, we were very happy to see that it had a tight closure and remains locked until the person on the inside opens it. There is also a way to open from the outside if needed. We will be buying a couple more.

Good lock but need separate pulls
This is a nice clean looking pocket door lock, however it is not deep enough to use as a flush pull. It also acts as an edge pull, but is not as robust or comfortable as typical stand alone edge pulls so I installed a separate one and ordered separate flush pulls to go with it.

best pocket door latch
We bought an old door for our barn bath room. Due to space, we turned it into a pocket door. This round latch covered the old handle circle perfectly and when my carpenter installed it he said it was the best pocket door latch he had ever seen and wished that they were all like this. It was very easy to install. No cutting out a large chunk of the door. It is flush with the door, the pull is recessed and pops out when you touch it. It looks good and works well.

Not practical for me
I was looking for a recessed door opener. I could not find one with a pull out ring you could twist to open and then flip back down into recessed position anywhere. I tried this but it was too hard to grip, turn and open the door with ease. Mostly because there was not enough depth to grab the handle.

Best Deal Ever
My husband has been in the building business for over 35 years. He said "Finally, somebody with some brains designed this pocket door hardware". There you have it!!! It's fantastic.

these are great
this is a great door knob replacement and not just for pocket doors. I bought these because a regular knob would have hit into another door being opened and closed. The handle looks good and works great. I live in an old house and it is so hard to find things that will work. These handles were such a good find!

The Perfect Solution
We have double hanging pocket doors and needed a lock that would lock the connecting doors plus fit inside the wall when the doors were opened. We looked everywhere, but finally found this item at HandleSets.com. It is extremely attractive and does a terrific job.

We have a narrow (23 1/2") door that opens in on a very small bathroom. We were forever smashing into the doorknob. The pocket door lock looks good and is just right for our situation.

I have been looking for a product like this for a long time.
The typical pocket door hardware is labor intensive to install and never does what the manufacturer says it will do.
The latch on the typical is impossible to stay in line.
This product is easy to install and locks easily
EXCELLENT PRODUCT. I will be using is from now on
