All Emtek orders are assembled and shipped from City of Industry, CA. Because of the quality of the locks and their customizable nature, door knob orders are assembled at the time of the order.

Construction of Emtek Lever Handles
Emtek locks have heavy duty mechanisms designed to provide trouble free service. Knobs and lever handles are supported by springs mounted behind the rosettes and sideplates. These springs return the handles back to the rest position and prevent lever sag. Emtek latches are heavy duty construction with strong internal spring and solid brass bolt. Spindles are sring loaded "half spindles" for smooth operation even on imperfect door prep. Emtek knobs and lever handles have a set screw design which, when tightened, eliminates the loose handle feel you get with other brands. Set screws do not hold the handle on, but serve to remove the loosness. Emtek handles and rosettes are forged, not cast or stamped, providing a flawless surface which can be highly polished when desired. The generous thickness and weight of forged parts gives them a solid look and feel.
Emtek Lever Handle Functions
Emtek lever handles are available in several functions the most common being keyed entry, privacy (bed and bath), passage (hall and closet) and single dummy. Each function is used for little different application.
Keyed Entry Lever Handles
Emtek keyed entry lever handles use a Schlage C 5-pin keyway. Keyed entry levers have a turn button on the interior side of the lever. Lock from inside by turning the turn button. Inside lever functions even in locked position for quick egress but lever handle remains locked until unlocked by turn button or key. Unlock from the outside using a key. The lever handle is only locked when the push button is in the locked position. Many Emtek lever handles are not available with a keyed entry function because a key cylinder would drastically change the look of the lever. In this case we recommend using a passage function lever along with an Emtek deadbolt for a door that requires keyed entry.
Privacy Lever Handles
Emtek privacy locksets lock by pressing push pin on the interior rosette. You do not need a key to unlock from the outside. There is no key cylinder, but there is a pinhole through which you can unlock the door using the generic tool provided. Privacy locks are generally used on bedroom or bathroom doors.
Passage Lever Handles
Emtek passage lever handles are non- locking. These are great for hall doors or closet doors that do not need to lock, but a latching mechanism is still required. Also use a passage function lever handle along with an Emtek deadbolt for keyed entry.
Dummy Lever Handle
Emtek dummy levers are sold as a pair. These are non-functioning lever handles that are mounted to the surface of the door. Used on doors that do not need a latch mechanism like the inactive side of a french door for example. Single dummy lever available upon request.
