I lost the key to my quickset smart key (the outside door lock (not the dead bolt) ) Do I have to take the knob off to fix or buy a new one?
Hi Tonya,To rekey a Kwikset Smartkey lock, you must use the current working key in order to rekey the cylinder to a new one. Without having the current working key, the lock cannot be rekeyed. Some local stores such as Lower or Home Depot carry a tool called a Reset Cradle that can fix that issue for you and rekey it back to the original key the unit came with if it was re keyed. Please check with your local store to see if they offer this service before driving out to the store. If you do not have the current working key or the original one the unit came with the cylinder will have to be replaced and will come with a new set of keys.Thanks!Kwikset Support Team

Do I need this set to re-key my kwikset lock or will any old key work? I already have the re-key tool.
Any KwikSet key will work.

Will I have to buy a new rekey kit everytime I want to rekey the lock?
No, you need the SmartKey learn tool, the current key, and a new key.

So... Does this mean that anyone who has this kit can come to my house and change my lock and take all my stuff? Doesn't seem very secure.
Smart Key requires functioning key to re-key a lock.

What if I broke the key i just used to re-key, and don't have any others?
If you don't have the any key to the lock you will have to get the smart key reset cradle tool. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Kwikset-Smart-Key-Reset-Cradle-Tool-83260-SMT-RESET-CRADLE/202099307 I purchased a foreclosure that had a kwikset deadbolt but didn't come with the key. It was very confusing to do, but worked.

What's the difference between an everyday key and a temporary key?
