A rather rude, uniformed hack, working the hardware counter told me "Kwikset locks are too difficult for them to re-key and cost $80.00."
So I purchased a Kwikset lock from a nearby competitor for $47.00 and re-keyed it myself in less than 1 minute. How? Because ALL Kwikset deadbolts have "SMARTKEY RE-KEY TECHNOLOGY" and takes less than a minute of time.
Seriously, learn your job, maybe do some reading...

This place was recommended by our contractor who was restoring our transitional 1906 home. We were amazed at all the hard to find hardware they had. Nancy was really helpful and help us create a plan door by door. They had all we needed

I had the best luck finding what I needed at this place. I had spent months restoring our 1910 Craftsman we had moved into the previous year and they had things I could not find anywhere else, even on line. Their selection is unbelievable and the staff is very helpful (but go in the mornings as the afternoons can be busy).

Their high quality stuff is priced that way, but I also needed a cheap lock for a work room and they had that too. I had no problem one time with an exchange and they worked with me through the whole project.
When we have friends over they comment all the time.

I thought they were problem-solvers, not problem creators. I went there to match some hinges and got what I thought was a close match. When I put them on, I found that they were not the right finish. I took ONE UNOPENED, UNUSED set back to exchange for the right finish and they wouldn't do it without a receipt. Really pissed me off, so I'm going elsewhere from now on.

Maybe the best source anywhere for hard to find hardware. When I started to upgrade my house I went looking all over for items and they were the only ones who had everything I needed. They have a custom architectural department and Mike was able to look at my plans and put together a package that saved a lot of money. In the future they won't be the last place I shop. They'll be first.

I always go there first for hardware. I got my door bells, door handles, house numbers, cabinet handles, etc. They had almost everything I needed for an old house. Prices can be expensive so I have to slow down and not buy the store.

This is a great place to look for period hardware such as doorknobs, hinges, light plates, drawer pulls, etc. This store is also a superb hardware resource if you're remodeling a craftsman home. The selection is extensive, and, if they don't have what you're looking for, you can check through the catalogs at the service counter and order from there. The quality is high, but, unfortunately, so are their prices. Still the selection is hard to beat.

If you are restoring your craftsman home you can find all the period door hardware, hinges, cabinet hardware, window hardware, switch plates, etc. here. Great quality, but unfortunately there are no bargains to be found here. I paid about $50 each for some drawer pulls. Beautiful though!

What a find this place is! If you are restoring or redoing an older home and love the craftsman or old world style of fixtures door knobs light switches etc this is the place to go. If they don't have it in the store, the customer service counter at the back has a large number of catalogs that you can look through and order from.

This stire has a ton of older styles including handcrafted Craftsman style hardware. They can help match old knobs and are great for finding parts for the older home. Looks kinda dingy inside and it takes awhile to get served, but you will find yourself going back again and again.

Pros: historic hardware

Cons: expensive, expensive, expensive
