  • Hancock Keyed Entry Knob in Satin Nickel is rated 4.4444 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to install I recently upgraded my exterior door knobs with the Kwikset knobs because of the feature allowing me to key them to one key instead of a different key for each door. The installation and re-keying was a breeze.The downside is that some of my doors are right opening and some are left opening so some of the doors now have the key slot upside down (teeth facing down instead of up). I did not see anything on the boxes designating whether they were for left opening or right opening doors so I assumed the cylinder could be flipped over by the home owner. There are no instructions included for flipping the cylinder so I'm guessing either I need a locksmith to do it or it's not doable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT WARRANTY A full set of Chrome Hancock locks were installed in my new house in 1999. A couple of them have failed after extensive use. No problem though - with Kwikset's lifetime warranty to the original owner, they were replaced after a phone call. The original installed versions were not the smart key type. The newer smart key type avoids the trip to the locksmith to match the rest of the house. One gripe about the newer version - they are more difficult to remove from the door than the original version which were held to the door via machine screws. All in all great locks with a great warranty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased these knobs, the matching deadbolts and interior knobs. All are great quality, look fantastic in my home (rustic/farmhouse).A piece of advice on the keyed alike option (something I wasn't clear on). I ordered both the keyed entry knobs and deadbolts on the same order and selected the keyed alike option, expecting both the deadbolts and keyed entry knobs to all be keyed the same. However, all the deadbolts are one type of key (these were keyed alike) and the entry knobs a different key (again, keyed alike). I mistakenly thought all would be one key. So, if this is your intention, be sure to contact customer service to specify this.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice handle set but careful installing These handles are nice looking and functional, but the installation is a bit different from any other handset I've installed. The inside handle is held in place not by screw, but by a clasp between the bolt and the inside handle. If installation is easy, but if the handle is a little bit askew when you twist it to engage the clasp, the brass inside clasp can bend and the knob set is ruined. I had four to installed and this happened to two (I was able to recover one, but had to purchase another handle set for the other). In my opinion, it is better to avoid this design flaw and go with a set that screws the inside knob in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive finish, solid hardware. I bought several of these to replace existing brass knob sets. Because these ship with all of the hardware and give you options of rounded and squared corners on the latch plate it made installation easy. The instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. The finish is very attractive and the hardware is solid. I would definitely purchase this set again. I had my entire order keyed-alike and was not disappointed. Everything matched and worked great.Product was packed well and shipped promptly. Great shopping experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect match! Our home is only 5yrs old and when one of the door knobs started having problems I thought it would be easy to find a replacement. Not so. None of the hardware stores carries this particular style in our area. So when I found it on line I was a bit aprenhesive. But as it turned out it was a perfect match. It was coded to match our existing keys... once again a perfect match. Installation was easy of course because it was a direct replacement. Excellent service. Couldn't be more pleased.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless I bought five of these and four have of the five are messed up. When the handle is locked it stil turns about 1/8 of a turn.You can feel it slip inside. Called the manufacturer and was told they were defective but that she had never heard of such a thing. Yea right.
