Plymouth Lower Handleset for Electronic Keypad with Flair Interior Right Handed Lever
OK, but not great.
The smoothness of operation on this leaves something to be desired. It is not dirt cheap, so I expected a certain smoothness when depressing the lever on either side and I expected a smooth retraction then full extension. This sticks sometimes and it has nothing to do with the installation...it did this when out of the door too (as a test). It is a mechanical/friction device, very simple (so hopefuly it won't break) but very primitive in it's smoothness.

Useful for other deadbolt options
This is the product that you'll want if you have an electronic lock or a different high security option (Abloy, Medeco, etc). Schlage offers a good range of finishes that can match or come very close to matching other company's finishes. They are also one of the few companies where you can find the handle without the matching deadbolt (not used for e-locks). I matched an Abloy deadbolt in satin brass to the Schlage handleset with no problems. The initial quality of the product is very good (solid handle, good mounting system, & good opening mechanism). The longevity of the product remains to be seen. However, I have not heard of any problems with Schlage. On the other hand, my Kwikset's finish was peeling which is why I had to replace the handleset. I would have considered Baldwin but I could not find an option without an included deadbolt.
When installing this product, pay careful attention to the setting of the lever handle in relation to the inner mechanism and mounting screws. If you don't connect it correctly then your handle will not work and you'll have to redo your work.
My Handlesets.com order was completed promptly and the shipping took a few days. I would definitely recommend this site to others, I ended up saving a large amount of $$$ versus buying this product at the local home store.

Lower unit handle set
We purchased a z-wave lock and needed the companion handle set for our front door. The handle matches the oil rubbed bronze keypad and has a similar foot print to our old handle set so we had less touch up painting to do.

keyless lock set
What a great product, i installed it myself in less than an hour. The keyless entry deadbolt works super, no probems. The matching door handle is a wonderfull match. Thanks Ron P.

this handle looks good with our combo lock. it fits with the door style and makes the combo look less
modern, which i was looking for.
