Schlage F51-ORB Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Service and Great Product I've ordered these knobs from HandleSets before and have always received very fast shipping without any problems. Will reorder from them next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied. I purchased these door handles to replace existing ones. Handlesets were exactly as expected. Since Schlage includes the 6-way latch mounts I didn't have to worry about which one to get and keyed them all alike. Installation was easy and straight-forward. One note - these handles when locked will still let you open the door while remaining locked. Good for those times when you are letting the dog out. Bad for those times if you go out without your keys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Look! Very very happy with modern look of this series. They have been installed now for 3 weeks, still enjoy! They have a great substantial feel as well. We went with the satin nickel and they have a lovely warm brushed finish. Good company to purchase from - best pricing and wonderful customer service!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service ! The keying service is fantastic, I had the code from my original lock set. New set arrived in two days keyed to match. Great service, price & delivery on a lock set not found in the home centers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product quality great; don't like "Panic Proof" I orderd five of these with same key. I have no complaint with the quality of the product and the service from was excellent. But, I did not really understand the meaning of "Panic Proof". It means you can exit without unlocking the lock which makes it very easy to accidentally lock yourself out. I would not purchase that feature again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from finish rubs off We purchased these in late October and by Christmas the finish had almost all rubbed off to a brass looking knob. Schlage is replacing them but if it happens again it is on us to deal with. I'm curious if anyone else has this problem? We live in MN so the winters are obviously cold, but I wouldn't think that a reason to rub off the finish. They function really well however and all dealings with have been very helpful and easy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic design and solid construction Restoring a 1957 Mid Century Modern home and the original Schlage Orbit knobs are still around! Solid construction and design stands the test of time.
