Door handlesets are kits that include a door handle and a separate locking mechanism. These sets are made for exterior entry door handles and also for interior door handles. Handlesets are available with the following options:
• Single Cylinder – Used mostly for residential homes, these handlesets feature a lock that requires a key on the exterior side only.
• Double Cylinder – This type of door handleset features a lock that requires a key on the exterior and interior side of the door, and is typically a deadbolt.
• Dummy Set – Most often used for interior door handles, dummy sets are motionless and do not have a locking mechanism. For the exterior, these sets are typically used to provide a match on double entry doors.
• Interconnected Set – This kind of door handleset features a latch and a dead bolt that are connected, so that one twist of the knob from inside will draw back the locks.
