Accent Single Cylinder Keyed Entry Panic Proof Door Lever Set
This is a good quality lever. The only thing I don't like is when it is locked you can open door and go outside, shut the door, and it is locked behind you. I don't know why they make locks like this. If it is locked you should have to unlock it to go outside that way you can't lock yourself out of the house.

Awesome New Look!
This hardware-- not available locally in any kind of store, has completely transformed my newly painted front door. Matte black on the outside & brushed nickel on the inside to match my existing hardware looks completely custom, which it is! I have no idea why anyone buys knobs anymore-- levers are so much better looking, as well as functional. Thank you Handlesets.com-- wonderful customer service and beautiful product!

I don't like being locked out of my room
Not more than 2 minutes after installing this door knob, I ended up locking myself out of my own room. Good thing I had a credit card to jimmy it open and so now I'm returning it to Home Depot for something without the "special lock you out" feature.

Very good quality
I am very happy with the quality of this lever set - only drawback is that the interior locking mechanism is not a push button that automatically unlocks. I have already locked myself out because of this. My prior lock had the push button feature and unlocked whenever the doorknob was turned.

Easy to install
Was very easy to install. However, the instructions should be a llittle more clear about the ability to swap the handles front-to-back (in addition to rotating for a left-handle vs right) so the curve (down then up, or up then down) matches your other handles.

The handles look great. Very easy to install. The only problem we have is it is easy to lock yourself out. The handle opens from the inside even when locked. There have been several instances walking outside to check weather that someone locked themselves out.

I wanted to replace all the handlesets on the outside doors so that my mother could open the doors easily. I also had the locks keyed-alike. Installation went smoothly and the polished brass finish made the whole job look professional. It's impossible to get 3 handlesets keyed-alike from a local Home Depot or Loews as quickly as ordering them from Handlesets.com. Shipping was fast. They arrived much sooner than expected. Recommending this product is a no-brainer. Great quality and easy installation!

I installed this lock on the door leading from my garage into my basement several years ago. Last week in going from the basement to the garage I closed the door. At that moment I realized that I had locked the door the night before. No one was home and there was no spare key in the garage. I worked for over one hour to break the lock and it never broke. The glass in the door was special and could not be broken. So I had to wait until someone came home.

Good product, bad feature
I like Schledge products but I have one big complaint on these keyed levers. When you lock the lever, it still operates from the inside. This presents 2 problems. 1.) You can't confirm that it is locked by trying to operate it so you have to confirm by opening it and checking it from the outside. 2.) Since it let's you out the door while locked do not be surprised if you accidentally lock your self out of the house several times.

Have had these door levers and corresponding deadbolts in an addition for 3 years, rebuilt the original house and recently purchased them for this project. Solid units, high quality parts and finish. Have had no problem with them for the past 3 years and expect none in the future. Utilized similar product for all interior doors also. A bit more expensive than other door levers but well worth the price.
