Schlage Satin Nickel Turns Yellow

Schlage satin nickel finish will turn yellow in the elements. Here is a double cylinder deadbolt. Note that the inside half is still satin nickel but the outside half has turned into a definite yellow shade.

I don’t know why satin nickel finish takes on a yellow hue in sunshine but after a few years it turns yellow. Schlage warrantees against this just so you know. This also happens to Kwikset locks. I am not aware of this happening to other finishes.
