I am doing a remodel and have to put in all new exterior/interior locksets. The front door has got me baffled. I have never had a mortise lock. I understand that Schlage grade 1 locks have some extra security/durability/construction features but they are very limited on trims. Baldwin on the other hand has many trims but does not have the same rating. My wife wants a lockset with a contemporary bar pull and she wants either a mortise lock or a lockset with a deadbolt *and* a incorporated lock in the lever action. I know these used to be very common but now Schlage seems to just have the lever and a deadbolt. If it were me I would put on a B660P deadbolt and a D53PD button action single cylinder knobset. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
