Monaco Keyed Entrance Handleset
Arrived quickly and looked exactly as hoped
I am extremely happy with this front door hardware. The colors on this website are pretty good at representing the actual colors of the hardware because when it arrived it looked identical to the pictures on the site!
Also a general review of handlesets.com:
I was a little nervous to purchase from handlesets.com because I had never heard of the site. However, due to them taking PayPal for payment made the decision much easier. I'm glad I decided to give handlesets.com a try because not only did they ship everything quickly, but it also arrived in perfect condition!

Sleek, Stylish, and Top Quality
This handle set exterior (it's not obvious, but the exterior and interior are sold separately) is really nice. It will fit any home with classic styling and is made from nice, heavy metal that will stand up to a beating from daily use. Also since the deadbolt cylinder is flush, it is a bit harder for someone to "grip and rip" when trying to break in (forbid!).

Solid Handleset for the price
The exterior handle & thumb latch are solid. The application was a new wood door pre-drilled. The installation took some fitting and adjusting before it finally was acceptable. In the end I had to omit the upsizing (2 1/8") collar on the deadbolt in order to have the deadbolt align with the handle. Although I worked to get the door edge plates flush the handleset still favored to the latch side. This issue was most likely caused by the door pre-drilling but it did not hurt the performance to remove the collar if you get into that situation. The deadbolt key slot took some adjusting on the exterior until it was plumb up and down. The interior deadbolt latch is solid and feels that way when you turn it. The andover knob was a mistake. We wanted the knob function and look but the knob is hollow and very cheap feeling. Go with a solid lever if you buy. I think we will be changing ours out in time. Another tip would be to keep a clean damp rag close as the oil rubbed finish can get on your hands and then on the door. It cleans up easily but just something to consider.

Knowledgeable Reps - Great Products
Everything I needed in one stop. Shipped super fast! The Schlage handlesets have a rich finish and high quality; strong enough to use without a second deadbolt. Your sales people know their stuff, and TL worked diligently with me before, during. I was completely confident and assured in every aspect of my order because of her knowledge of all the products, of construction, and of company procedure.

Originally bought one of these at an online auction site:
The latch sheered off within a month of regular use. My friends would come to the door, and the latch would come off in their hand. Not funny, especially when grandkids locked themselves out! Anyway, found your product, replaced the latch, and voila: Works and looks great. Great product help from your staff. We love it!

The hand set is incredibly beautiful but is very tough to press down the handle latch with your thumb.....impossible actually. So this would not be a good choice for the elderly or people with small children. I am strong and need to use the palm of my hand in order to depress the lever - rather than my thumb. It's handsome - but hard to open.

I have yet to see how this holds up to the elements but looks great otherwise. I also got a great price on this being able to price match it to another site that was having a sale.

Ordered this unit and the dummy in aged bronze. Quality product, easy to install, smooth door operation. Like keying request on this and 4 other handlesets was perfect.

The hand set was just as it appeared on the web site. Nice quality, although hard to put together. Once it was, it looks terrific~
