The pocket door handle was received very quickly and was in perfect shape. The installation instructions were clear. This hardware is a little larger than the standard size which was exactly what I needed and it was hard to find elsewhere.
I am very happy with this purchase. After going to several hardward stores (large and small), I was very happy to find this size on line. None of the stores that I went to had this specific size. It seems like a size needed for older doors. The quality and look of the product is excellent and we were able to install them in minutes. I purchased the satin nickel and the antique bronze and they both look great. I would like to add that the shipment arrived when expected.
This lockset is ok but not significantly different or better than Schlage products. The rubbed bronze finish is sprayed on, not mechanically produced. It fits standard solid core doors very nicely. Although there is a specific line drawing for the lockset and a "mini" installation template the instructions fail to mention that the installer should loosen the two cross-body screws before trying to slide the lockset into the door cutout. This is only a minor aggravation so it doesn't really impact the value of the lockset. The Schlage sets sell in my area for $5.00 less than this set.
