Tramore Left Handed Single Cylinder Entry Set with Keyed Exterior Durham Knob and Interior Knob/Lever Options
Not a chintzy handleset
This Weslock handleset is made of a very heavy cast metal, is not tinny or cheap feeling at all. The color is darker in person than the web pic shows. I ordered the oil rubbed bronze, and it was mostly black. The knob seems to stick a little when you go to turn it. I think the more it gets used, it will work itself in. I do not like the button behind the knob, for the setting the lower lock from inside. It is hard to use and easy to hit without meaning to when you grab the handle. The positives of the set are the looks, and price, and weight. It looks great, and gives an older, very traditional, and worn in feel. The price in comparison to many other brands is much lower for something other than a "builder grade" product. The weight also adds to making it look and feel like a much more expensive set. Fair warning, I'm a handy person, and the instructions were a little lacking. Overall, for the price I don't think I could have gotten a nicer handleset.

good product, poor fullfillment
FIrst off, the lock sets were not in stock, and to be fair it was clearly identified as such, but the estimated ship date of 2-3 weeks was a joke. FInally got the product 4 months later. To Build.com's credit they did keep me informed of each new delay. Was supposed to have exterior Durham Knob, but came with lever on both sides. I requested matched keying, and the keys are very close, but not interchangeable. Other than that I do like the locksets, had them re-keyed to match, and decided to live with the lever action on interior and exterior rather than wait another 4 months for replacements. They really are quite nice to look at. However, if I had to do it over again I would pick a different mfr. Weslock needs to get its act together.
