I just drove 60 miles to buy a brass kick plate from meynards..I found a schlage brand kick plate. good american company I thought..
I can trust Schlage even though I know better than to trust Meynards Quality.. got home and it says bright brass but it is brass colored aluminum. No where on the package does it say aluminum..it says bright brass.
I called schlage and they said the code number has an " a " in it and that means brass colored aluminum..Who knew? They must have learned from China how to market sub quality..and it worked..No more schlage and no more Meynards for me or my buildings.
Monetary Loss: $300.
