The trademark symbol reminds you that our unique Lifetime Finish™ has multiple patents to back up Baldwin's promise that your hardware will withstand the rigors of time and weather to remain free of tarnish, pitting and discoloration. We can confidently promise you it will be beautiful for as long as you own your home and we stand behind our claim with a lifetime warranty to provide a free replacement in the unlikely event your Lifetime Finish™ should fail. Baldwin mechanisms also carry with them a lifetime mechanical warranty. Baldwin 8000 and 8200 series deadbolts have been tested to ANSI Grade 1 Standards, and offer the maximum level of security for lock set deadbolts. The UL listing on our mortise locks means they have endured the most rigorous 3-hour fire testing by the Underwriters Laboratory. That allows Baldwin UL locks to be used on multiple unit dwellings and in countries like Canada that require UL listing for their residential locks.
