Interior Sargent handlesets needed

We are getting ready to install all new luaun doors on the interior of our home. We have Sargent handlesets for most of the doors but are missing a few. Ours our all in the bronze-ish/copper-ish finish. We need one interior without the lock and one interior with the lock. Even just the outer portion of the locking interior door knob would work...our baby locked herself in the bathroom and I used a hammer to whack the original knob. Luckily, the baby is safe but boy, I felt sick looking at that mangled door knob afterward knowing how hard they are to come by... :shock:

Also, any advice on cleaning these knobs up and actually re-installing? Would it just be best to hire a locksmith?

Feel free to respond on the forum or email me...the address is in my profile. Thanks!

To clean the knobs, I used a baby butt wipe (clean one of course :)

I could use a new strike plate for one of my doors. The previous owner filled out the hole so the door moves when the pressure in the house changes and makes noise. Schlage stike plates don't fit nor do the generic plates they sell at the home improvement stores.

Does anyone know of a post with the history of Sargent? I assume the company is out of business.

There might be a history on the company web site:

http://www.sargentlock.com/

It appears they are still in business. :)
