    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Deadbolt & SmartKey Makes it even better Have been using 4 of these for 4 years now. Installation instructions were clear and easy. They have held up well. The outside portion still looks like new. Really like being able to re-key easily whenever I need to do so. Will never buy another keyed lockset that isn't a SmartKey.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product A few years ago, we purchased this deadbolt setup to replace the set on our front door. The one we had, had a handle on the inside to lock/unlock. Some friends of ours, who had a similar door, had their side windows broken, the criminals reached in, unlocked the door and made off with a lot of their stuff. The next day, we bought this set. We have a spare key, hidden, in the house for evacuation purposes, but we know that they can break the side window and NOT get in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Single key for all the doors! And re-keyable! I love these locks.... a single key for all the outside doors - front, back and side - makes it so convenient. On top of that I have bought a smartkey kwikset padlock for the gate which also opens with the same key. Convenient and minimalist. No problems for past 2 years. One lock was a bit sticky and was not opening well with the key... I rekeyed it to the same key and now it works smoothly. The satin nickel finish has stayed well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartKey makes security easy In my parents house the key bundle can drop your pants. When I built my house I used all SmartKey deadbolts and handle sets. Each door has a deadbolt and some doors have a matching handleset. I standardized on the 985 Double Cylinder for the deadbolt.Now the key bundle on my house is only 3 keys, by choice. And still, very secure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant Safety feature locking from both sides After I purchased and installed the dual cylinder lock (key used on both sides of cylinder to prevent someone from reaching in and turning deadbolt by hand after breaking window) I knew what was coming from my wife---we can't have this, if there is a fire getting key and unlocking will not work. I showed here the slot in the wall I made with key placement and also were i put a secondary key (also near the door). Once again i was told this will not work. I showed her the benefit that if someone broke a window they could not reach in and unlock door and left it at that. Over the next few days I watched her as she would run, grab stored key, and unlock door. I also observed her doing the same---but without grabbing key and pretend to turn a deadbolt handle. I never brought up the issue again and after a few days when she left to run errands I took out the Double Cylinder Deadbolt and ireinstalled a traditional Single Cylinder. When she returned the very first thing she said was why do we have this unsafe lock back in the front door. I believe that the above story tells it all. When you want safety, you want Kwikset and the Double Cylinder Deadnoult

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Installation Instructions are lacking I think that after all these years of making locks you'd have this down to a science that's real. 1). Enlarge the instructions. 2). Create a better way to align the latch with the strike plate, 3). Provide problem resolutions on the instructions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Warranty I purchased this deadbolt and installed myself. It served me for about 8 years and then one day the cylinder fell out. I did remember the lifetime warranty on this product, so I contacted Kwikset. They requested the broken piece and provided a shipping label. After a few days, I had a new deadbolt to replace the old broken one. Remember to register your products.

    I just installed a 985 deadbolt and i find that when locked from the inside, the key cannot be removed from the cylinder until unlocked. I also find that the deadbolt cannot be locked from the outside unless a key is present in the inside cylinder.
