Georgian Single Cylinder Keyed Entry Door Knob Set
Sensible Door Knob
I purchased this door knob set to replace the one that I had purchased locally and considered to be a hazard. It opened from the inside, even when locked, by the turn of the knob. This " instant exit" was supposed to be a safety feature. DUMB! You were then locked out if the door happened to shut. The new knob - same brand/different model - does not open from the inside when locked unless you turn the little knob button. You then know that if you step outside you will not be locked out. This knob set was a little pricey, but it is very attractive and was easy to install. It certainly gives me peace of mind, so it was worth every penny.

What others couldn't provide
We chose these knob sets because they were quality knobs that would hold up to hard use, but we couldn't find the model without the "panic proof" feature while checking locally. We wanted to avoid getting locked out while stepping outside for a moment, and having the knob "lock up" both inside and out, and having to unlock it to use it from the inside, is a sure indication to the user that the door is locked or unlocked. Handlesets.com had what we needed (and others couldn't provide), and we were able to get them all keyed alike. The shipping was quick, and the service was excellent. Thank you.

I like this lock as you can tell from the inside whether it's locked or not. I had this lock replace one that I had bought where you can't tell from the inside whether it's locked or not. And I therefore locked myself out a few times. Looking around the internet, I find I'm not the only one that has that problem with these so-called safety locks.
Anyway, now I'm happy and no longer locking myself out.

Fast shipping!! Replaced all exterior door knobs at lake cabin, all keyed the same. Simple, easy in a matter of minutes. Includes all necessary hardware. Looks great! Highly recommend NOT PANIC PROOF knobs to prevent accidentally locking door behind you unless you have the key; and assurance that the door is actually locked/unlocked when you check it.

disappointed in quality
See my other review of deadbolt. Schlage quality has dropped off. A lot. In the past, installed Schlage product has been seamless and straightforward. Installation of these seven locksets was "sticky" and inconsistent. Poor quality control.
Biggest irritation was these were billed as "panic" sets, which open from inside, even if locked. They don't.

These door knobs have been good and solid so far(over two years installed). The customer service of Handlesets.com is top notch. If only every other business was as professional as Handlesets.com, this nation would be thriving. Thank you so much.

The cover that goes up against the outside of the door is loose. It will be easier for me to caulk it in than return the doorknob/lock, however it would be nice if these were inspected before being sent out.

These door knobs are not the same finish as the exact same make/model# sold at Home Depot. Other than that everything with the transaction was perfect. The shipping was fast!
