from Beautiful design We have had this item on our home for 12 years. Twice we have had failure where the thumb latch fails and takes a bit of force to open the door. Kwikset has replaced the handle both times with excellent customer service!! I will always buy kwikset just because they stand behind their product!!!

from Looks great for a few years Our house faces north so not can't really blame the sun. But after 5 years, the handle set started to change colors. Luckily there is a lifetime warranty on the finish and we were sent another set. Hopefully it will last much longer.

from brass finish is out of style This was a decent lockset/handleset. Kwikset honored the warranty and sent new parts when it broke.

from Superb Product for Harsh Climate & GREAT Support! A Kwikset handleset similar to this one in an antique brass came with our Florida house in 2009. The front door faces south, and the handleset succumbed to sun and hard, frequent rains, and it developed unattractive spots by 2013. I called the company who originally installed the door & handleset, and they looked at it and said an antique nickel finish would wear much better than brass under poor weather conditions. They said Kwikset continously improves their products and warranties them for life, and would replace a weather-damaged handleset for free if I paid postage.I sent Kwikset a photo of the damaged handleset with my iPhone, paid a few bucks for postage, and within days had received a brand-new antique nickel Chelsea handleset - the closest match available to my 2009 model - with a single-use tool to key it to match my existing housekey, all without charge! It's now two years later, and the handleset is beautiful, still looks like it's brand new despite the constant Florida sun and rain, and still operates perfectly (and we use it a lot).I had never expected Kwikset to so quickly and easily honor a lifetime warranty, but it did! 'Kwikset has the best support ever, and makes a REALLY great handleset for a harsh climate like our Florida one! Kwikset has my highest recommendation.

Hi, We recently purchased a home with this front door handle set, and discovered that the thumb lever latch piece has detached from the locking mechanism. If you lightly pull on the lever it comes right off. Is there a replacement piece I can order?
