  • Why is Quickset charging so much for this tool? Isn't it intended to correct a problem that occurs through the consumers attempt to simply execute what the lock is supposed to do? In my case, the lock just became inoperable with my key.

    I have a new reset cradle and I can't get it to rotate to line up the arrows.  It will only rotate about half way, it that much.  I have tried several different smartkey cylinder with the same results.
