Quality grade replacement part

About Me Budget Shopper

Comments about SchlageTriple Option Deadlatch (40-251):

Front door inexplicably seized and discovered it was not the knob or lock. The springlatch was jammed and not functioning properly. Glad to find this part at my local Ace Hardware. Was listed online as out of stock but they still had it and quickly installed the part on my door the next day. Saved $40 by not buying an entirely new lock set.
