    The locks from Paxton Hardware are very good quality.

    High Quality

    Your specs on the website were detailed to the point that I had full confidence that the lock would fit my application. I received the order in a timely manner and found it to be of high quality and it fit perfectly.

    The lock works perfectly, unfortunately, the faceplate, strike plate and key does not come in oil rubbed bronze and they key is plated, so I was unable to age the finish.
