Locksmithing/Titan Door Hardware / Locksets


Hi James,

Just found this site and hoping you can answer a simple question.  Just bought a house that has a Titan front door lockset that I want to replace, but when I start looking on the web Schlage keeps coming up.  Was there an acquisition and Titan isn't Titan anymore, and I should look into a different brand?

Thanks much.

Hello John,

Titan was a Kwikset series. The Schlage that keeps coming up may be advertisements.

I'd suggest a Kwikset Grade 2 which you can view here: (some listed are Grade 3, look for a 700 series in the part numbers. Anything with a 400 in the part number is a Grade 3.)

Emtek would also work but Schlage residential locks (F series) are not that great.

I do not answer Safe or automotive questions. Period. I am knowledgeable in almost every area of Locksmithing. This includes locks, keys, lost keys, residential and commercial lockouts, rekeying, masterkeying, high security locks, access control, electric locks, security cameras and home safety. I have been running an online business since 2004 where I sell all types of lock and security hardware to everyone from apartment renters to business owners to the US government. Before that I started a locksmith service in 1999. I deal with many types of security equipment including high security safe locks, heavy duty padlocks, exit devices, biometric readers, electric strikes, magnetic locks, full surface hinges and I only sell what I personally stand behind 100%. The online business has given me a more in-depth look at the locksmithing industry, helping me to learn more about each and every product that I offer, as well as products I don't have but end up finding for customers to solve any issues they have with security or door hardware.

Please don't submit any automotive or safe questions as these aren't areas that I can help in.
