  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful affordable door hardware! We replaced all of the door hardware in our home (19 doors) with these Balboa levers. They were easy to install, affordable and look great. I specifically wanted an antique brass color which was hard to find, but this was perfect. Shipping was fast and accurate. This is one happy customer!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful handles We ordered these handles for our entire home. They are beautiful and well made. The only thing that we didn't love was that the screws on the inside part of the handle are visible. The picture doesn't show that. I thought it would bother me, but it really doesn't. Would purchase again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased these door handles for a rental unit that I am remodeling. They match the contemporary feel I am going for. The door handles came with all needed parts (even a choice of oval or rectangular door plates). Just order carefully so you get the correct opening for this single dummy lever. It is not interchangeable as the rest of the door handles are. Instructions were easy to follow and I was able to change out the handles with no difficulties. They make the doors look great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and attractive I used this in 4 homes we built and customers love them. They are very stylish and modern looking yet fall under "universal design" meaning they are great for people with disabilities or great for aging in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and attractive These were the best priced lever handles I could find and we will be using them in all of our homes. They are sturdy, attractive and fit in any decor, plus they are great for people with disabilities or elders.

    I need a left hand inactive Balboa lever in Satin Nickel to go on the opposite side of the door from the one shown here.  Therefore, it should have no screws on the plate.  It should oppose the model 488BL RH 15 CP in Satin Nickel already installed. Help!

    Asked by: PHJax
    Hello PHJax, Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 488BL-15. All inactive levers have screws on the plate. For a left inactive door lever you will need to purchase model # 488BL LH 15 CP. Sincerely, Kwikset Support Team

    There is a paper tab that one uses to separate the rose from the main body of the lever for installation. I pulled and yanked on the tab; however the rose would not budge. I ended up ripping off the tab. Any suggestions for removing the rose?

    Hello Bikersaurus, Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 488BL-5. We apologize for the inconvenience you have encountered with your lock.
