Unbelievably FAST delivery !Found these indoor door knob sets at Home Depot. Came home and found the exact ones here at a fraction of the cost. Replaced all the door knobs in the house so there were quite a few! No shipping cost because my order was over $200. No sales tax either. Get this ... I ordered them on line mid Thursday afternoon and they were delivered Friday afternoon. Doesn't get much better than that ! Highly, HIGHLY recommend this place !

Good ChoiceMy contractor recommended this sight and I found it easy to use and the knobs I ordered were just what I expected. I ordered 8 sets and needed to change my order minutes after I confirmed it and their customer service rep handled the matter quickly and efficiently. It was the best experience I've ever had dealing with a customer service dept. I felt they truly cared about the matter. I would recommend this site to anyone who needs to order many sets plus they have a larger variety to choose from then your local big do it yourself stores.

i purchased new handles because we added on and i wanted to update all the doors and get rid of brass and hopefully get a handle that isn't so noisey, the handles look good, but these are noisey too. i can't stand to hear the creak of a door knob when we are trying to be quiet.

Good productI couldn't find the handles in the stores that were brass on one side and chrome on the other. I called and the rep was very helpful - even going to the warehouse and making sure it was what I wanted.

Perfect!I purchased 9 of these to install in my house (replacing some very old, ugly knobs), and they are so well made and easy to install (this is the first time I have tried changing knobs, my husband provided a little assistance removing the old ones)! I will be purchasing a couple more for some other areas of the house.
