This product works fairly well. Scan both index fingers in order to get more effective read rate on the scanner. The instructions are pretty bad I would say.... so if you not handy, you will have a tough time modifying this item if needed. I installed this item on a fire door and had to cut a portion of the internal prongs on the door handle where it attached to the handle on the other side of the door. The handle prongs are also welded (soldered) on and are a little flimsy (build quality could be better on the inner components of the handle). Note also that in order to get the main fingerprint lock apart, their is a screw behind the lock cap. Do yourself a favor and make sure that the hole in the door is reasonably close to the template (provided with instructions) before you open the plastic wrap. Its ok if its further away by a 1/2 inch or so because the actual latch mechanism can be extended by twisting counterclockwise. I think this is why they put the instructions outside the plastic and a big warning that if you break the plastic seal, you own it! The dead-bolt latch looks less like a door knob (see Ovestock picture) and more like a notched billet of aluminum. Feels pretty nice as does it look. It looks very modern, contemporary with all hidden screws etc. Overall product works fairly well and reasonable good pricing from overstock. These notes may seem unclear now, but I assure you, they will come clear when you install this. Also, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!! Even if you are one of these people who just complete stuff without them, it will serve you well to take an inventory of parts (to see that they provide a tool and a part for everything including a file, screwdriver, etc) and read over the installation instructions. Also, read and understand programming instructions before freezing you tail of figuring it out at the door with the door opening and closing to test. ***IMPORTANT*** make sure to change the master code because this is exactly the same for all units; but be CAUTIOUS when you do this because if you forget it, you have to take the lock back off to reset it on the inside... not fun if you have just killed yourself putting it on in the first place.

After checking out modern levers at all the local design centers, I was feeling resigned to the fact that anything with a modern/contemporary was unattainable because of the unaffordability. My wife found these on Overstock and I was ecstatic with the price which is about half as less as anything else I could find. We took the chance and order enough to update our main floor. They arrived quickly and installed easily. The lever is much more heavy duty than I thought it would be considering the low price. Both sides of the lever operate independently which I think is pretty cool. We liked these so much that we ordered more for our second floor.

I have this style lever in my entire house to go with my contemporary/modern decor. They're straight and simple lines, and the paint and finish on these are excellent. Remember you are getting a set of two in one order so the price can't be beat. If you want modern levers but don't want to pay top $$ for it, get these.

I ordered the 36" door to finish off my master bathroom. It is very pretty, but is too unstable with just a top track. It can be stained or painted, since there are no knots and the grain is nice if you like quarter sawed oak. My bathroom is contemporary, so I plan on painting it a medium brown to show off the art glass. I also will be converting the door to two hinged doors, which is more appropriate for the 36" size. They are not as thick as standard doors, so narrow hinges are needed, as well as additional door knobs. If this conversion wasn't necessary, I would have given the doors a 5 star rating.

These levers are a good bargain if you're looking for a modern touch for your millwork. Solid, nice weight, easy install. Locking mechanism isn't the smoothest, but always works fine.

I was looking for mirrored doors to go in my 1950's home. This type of door does not exist at the Big Box stores which really only carry sliding doors with a very contemporary look. You can special order something similar from high-end stores but it gets pricey quick and I couldn't readily find affordable bifold doors online (kudos to Overstock for streamlined shipping times and costs). These are pine and I painted mine white to match the rest of the trim in my house. They are made of unfished pine which so far seems well constructed and could be stained but keep in mind that pine is not the most stain-friendly wood. The mirror comes covered in plastic which you have to carefully peel off but it's great for finishing the wood as it protects the glass from any paint or stain. Also, the back of the glass has a safety adhesive coating to keep the glass from shattering if it breaks. The only thing that keeps me from awarding the Excellent rating is the hardware - don't get me wrong it seems fine and is working well (just as good as what comes with the doors at the BigBox stores) but could be a little more sturdy. Like most moving parts it will need a little TLC over the years.

I recently had a flood in my in-law apartment. ServPro came and ripped everything out due to contamination. That meant that my doorknobs went onto the back of their disposal truck along with the doors. Not easily deterred I decided to make a bad situation better by installing sliding doors onto the rooms. This would make the rooms feel larger. But what to do for a knob that would accomodate a sliding door? Well this little beauty did the trick nicely. It has the contemporary look I was going for, fits the hand nicely and looks just plain amazing!! The only complaint I had was that they come with no instructions so we had to just wing it on our own. That wasn't fun!!

Good size and shape. Looks very stylish and goes with my contemporary decor. I got the satin nickle finish and they're very pretty and don't look cheap at all.

I had no luck finding chrome doorknobs anywhere until I saw them on Overstock.com. The product is of very high quality and the installation wasquite simple. I also bought chrome hinges to match and was very pleased with them. The style is contemporary which was what I was looking for. Overall, I am pleased with everything. I doubt I will spend time going from store to store when I know where I can find almost anything I need.

I like the style of these door knobs very much. I rated the quality of the product as good, because I am sure there are better quality products out there. With that said, those products are going to cost a whole lot more. I really love these door knobs because they go with the "castle/french county" style of my house. I could also see them in a "rustic" style house or even a "contemporary" one. We built a home three years ago and the knobs still work fine and look great. There is only one with a dent and that is in my son's room. I don't get an answer when asking what happened. Just one of those things that happens mysteriously in life. lol. I have bought a whole lot of items from overstock for our new home from rugs to sinks and am happy with almost all of those purchases. Thanks Overstock!

These handles are a great value for the money. Weighty, and very contemporary. A great value for the money.

I got the satin nickle finish and they look great and match my contemporary decor. The size is good for your hand and the shape is nice to turn as the egg shape is more ergonomic and gives just a slight bit more leverage than in round doorknobs. The mechanism turns smoothly and the locks work just fine. I am very happy I got these.

I am entirely pleased that I purchased and replaced my old polished brass front door handle with this handle. It has performed well for me over the last year- I have had absolutely no problems whatsoever. I have referred a number of friends who have purchased this same lock but in different colors. It matches the contemporary look of our homes in our development.

With a paint update, door knobs & hinges needed a change as well. These levers have a simple, contemporary look--just what I needed, Install was easy so all positive!
