Life is ever changing. At Schlage, we appreciate that every room has a life of its own, evolving over time to reflect your unique preferences. That’s why we set out to create a door hardware solution that would support your needs and adapt to the changing life of any room.

 

Designed as a flexible system, Schlage Custom hardware provides customers with a customizable lock solution. With the 2:1 functionality, you can change a non-locking door to lockable - without having to remove the inner core of the lock. This means you can switch the functionality of your door hardware without buying a new lock. Simply insert or remove the pin tool provided with the lock to change from one function to another.

 

Below are five life moments you likely haven’t considered yet that makes Schlage Custom Door Hardware the perfect choice for families.

First-time parents

Congratulations! You just found out you’re expecting. Once that nesting phase hits, do you know where your child will be sleeping? It may be time to change that office or guest bedroom to a nursery. That might mean you’ll want a non-locking function on the nursery door to ensure you can always get to the baby quickly, and easily.

Families with toddlers

Once your child becomes mobile, consider the doors that may lead to dangerous areas they should be kept away from. Think, basement stairs and rooms that have not been baby-proofed like a home office, hobby room or even a closet storing items that are not safe for a baby or toddler to play with. Easily change your door knob or lever to a locking function without ever removing the hardware from the door.

Families with young kids

So what if your child accidentally locks herself in a room? There’s no need to break the knob – or door. All Schlage Custom locks come with an emergency unlock tool so you can quickly and easily free your child from accidental captivity. You may even want to consider switching a child-proof room, like their bedroom or playroom, from locking to non-locking (Hall & Closet function).

Families with teenagers

As your child grows and gains some independence, easily switch their hardware from non-locking to locking to grant a little more privacy. You may even want to add a little extra security to other areas of the home, like your closet if your kids are prone to stealing your clothes.

Empty-nesters

And just like that, you blink and your kids are all grown up, living in homes of their own. You may decide to change their old bedrooms into something with more utility for your stage of life. Perhaps a hobby room or guest bedroom.
