FOOTHILL RANCH, CA – Hampton Products International is building a better door knob.

Introducing Brinks Home Security Push Pull Rotate door locks, the first knobs and levers that open three ways. Designed to improve the way homeowners open doors, Push Pull Rotate products enable doors to be opened traditionally by turning or rotating them, and in two completely new ways: Gently pushing or pulling on the knob or lever releases the door latch. Hampton Products, which has produced security hardware for more than 30 years, is showcasing the Push Pull Rotate line at the NAHB International Builders Show booth #S1263.

Push Pull Rotate door locks make opening doors easier whether your hands are full or free. A quick bump with an elbow or hip, or a tug with a single finger can open interior or exterior doors more easily, and without setting down groceries, babies, or mobile phones. Although the Push Pull Rotate locks are easier to use, they still stay closed and locked when the user wants them to be, exactly as a “traditional” lock does. Push Pull Rotate handles provide a new door-opening solution and are ADA-compliant.

In addition to a wide range of architectural styling, the products meet rigorous ANSI Grade 2 residential testing standards. Featuring durable, all-metal construction, Push Pull Rotate products are built on a cylindrical chassis normally used in commercial applications so they are exceptionally durable and come with a lifetime warranty. They are easily installed with a Phillips screwdriver. The keyed products are pick-resistant, bump-resistant, drill-resistant, and the deadbolts are also equipped with anti-pry shields and steel anti-drill plates to provide the highest level of security that consumers expect from Brink’s Home Security.

Hampton is also introducing innovative new Push Pull Rotate handleset designs at the Builders Show. In all, more than 100 combinations of entry, privacy and passage knobs, levers and handlesets are now available, including matching deadbolts for a complete line that will please any homeowner. Finishes include polished brass, satin nickel and Tuscan bronze.

“In developing the Push Pull Rotate line, we started with a blank slate and the idea that there must be a better way to open a door. What we created is a complete line of door locks that meets a homeowner’s desire to make their life easier, update and add value to their home while complementing their existing décor. Besides its functionality and styling, we’ve also included thoughtful design features into the line such as flat areas on the knobs for pushing, hidden screws for enhanced appearance, and multiple security components in the locks to deter thieves,” said Jim Hartung, Chief Marketing Officer, Hampton Products International.

“There are hundreds of scenarios where having a door knob you don’t have to turn to open is an advantage, whether your hands are full or free. Push Pull Rotate is simply a better and easier way to open a door.”
