Is anyone having repeated successes with Emtek's line of non-mortise entry handlesets?
I am talking about the kind from Emtek where a thumbpiece is pressed down (outside) to rotate a shaft and pull in the latch. A handle or lever is rotated to do the same from the inside.
The "Arts and Crafts" model I am working with right now seems to be defective. When "closed," thumbpiece not depressed, the square shaft inside is rotated maybe 15 degrees, and cannot engage the latch, which wants to see the shaft at zero.
Furthermore, the rotation given to the square shaft, by fully depressing the thumbpiece, is only about 30 degrees, which I am sure is not enough to fully pull the latch so the door will open.
If you have experience with these Emtek entry handlesets, please comment. Thanks.
