There are so many reports that we heard about house break-in where in not only stuffs were lost but lives as well.

Let’s protect what we value and sometimes it starts with a simple thing but the most important of all: our home lockset or doorknobs.

I have been a purchaser for more than 2 decades and when I comes to doorknob/lockset, I don’t go to the lowest price but chose to purchase the highest quality to do the right job.


So, what are the qualities that I take into consideration when choosing a lockset


There are so many lockset/doorknob makers in the world and since we cater to high end clients, it’s a must that the material that the manufacturer passes the ANSI/BHMA standard.


If you think that doorknobs are just about a thing that would open and close a door, then you are wrong; there is a specific design for every door and each one has a purpose


While other are considering the price of the doorknob; please take note as well as to how long the lockset would last. A doorknob could cost you just a few bucks but notice how short it would serve its purpose, not to mention the security it provides


Your peace of mind has no price tag so make sure that when choosing the lockset that would protect you from the outside world, think about the people you love and how much you value them; then that’s the price of the lockset that fits you.

 I attended the Kwikset Roadshow Manila 2018 happened last March 15, 2018 at the Blue Leaf Filipinas and until now, the thing that I believe in purchasing lockset is still the rule.

Kwikset is the leading residential lock manufacturer, making homeowners feel safe since 1946. Kwikset works hard to understand the world you live in, so that we can do everything we can to protect it. The company’s unwavering commitment to meeting homeowners’ needs has inspired its innovative lock portfolio that includes patented SmartKey Security™ deadbolts, keyless entry combination locks, connected home technology, first-to-market electronic lock, Kevo™, door hardware with Microban® antimicrobial product protection and a wide variety of styles and finishes. Our interior and exterior door products provide customers with the quality, technology, durability and style they want while guaranteeing the highest level of security.

During the demos on each station, Kwikset once again re affirm what I believe in; that securing our love ones may cost us an arm, but we have the peace of mind that goes with it.

There is no shortcut when it comes to protecting our love ones. Purchasing top of line lockset is not about luxury but a necessity to protect our home.

So that’s it for now
