from Kwikset 780 Single Cylinder Deadbolt in Antique Br I have two (2) installed on my doors with the 740 Juno Entry Lock in Antique Brass. I like the smart key function so I can re-key both locks as necessary without having to take the cylinders to the store for re-keying. The installation goes together in a few minutes. Anyone can install this lock in an existing opening. We like the antique finish and the locksets work smoothly and perfectly. I'm a Kwikset consumer for life.

from SMT key,not so smart I'm a local mobile Locksmith, not a distributor. I have trouble with the Smart key system. I have had several cylinders fail. I have some that don't work in the cradle. When a SMT is on the only door and there is no key the options are limited, compared to picking or the cost of a cylinder if you have to drill.

from Good Purchase with Reservations Bought two sets of the single cylinder locks with matching Hancock handle sets utilizing the Smartkey function in antique brass. The single cylinders function flawlessly however, the antique brass finish does not match the antique brass finish for the Hancock style handle sets. Antique brass in any of the Kwikset cylinders (including the double cylinders) and matching handle sets should be a uniform color. It's my opinion that this variation in color is a quality control issue for Kwikset which can be corrected at the manufacturing facility even though the facility is outside of the USA. If there was no color variation, I would have given 5 stars.

from Nice Solid Smooth Action We are loving our new deadbolts. maybe it's just because our old ones were so, well, old. We had to push the door and fiddle with them to get them to turn but these are a breeze.They feel very solid and secure but I can literally lock the door with the swipe of a finger.Great piece.And the SmartKey function? Genius. Just had a bunch of contractors over and re-keyed the whole house for their access in like 10 minutes. Now that the work is complete I changed the whole house back to the original locks. Perfect!

from Replacing all locksets/doorsets at my new home. The ext handlesets with the smartkey feature worked great and was very easy to do. One key fits all. I would purchase this deadbolt again.

I have a Kwikset deadbolt that is lose and spinning. There are no visible screws on the inside to tighten. I took the inside handle off so I could remove the inside plate and find the screws but the plate would not come off. How do I get this task done?
Hello JohnJ,Thank you for your interest in Kwisket model #780 L03 SMT. This model has visible screws located on the interior plate. These screws are holding the interior deadbolt to the door. If you do not see the screws on the plate, the model number you have provided may the the incorrect model number. The model number you may have is the #980 series. This will require a 1/16" allen wrench to loosen and remove the small set screw located under the turn piece on the interior deadbolt. Once this is removed the turn piece will then have the ability to be removed as well. At this point the cover plate that was held on by the turn piece should come off, and expose two more mounting screws under the plate.If further assistance is needed please contact Kwikset technical support at 1-800-327-5625.Thank you,Kwikset Support

what is the difference between the single cylinder and double cylinder deadbolt and will either lock key be compatible to the lodi door handle?
Hello jimbob12,The single cylinder deadbolt is keyed on the exterior side of the door and has a turn piece on the interior side for locking and unlocking. The double cylinder deadbolt is keyed on the interior and exterior side of the door for locking and unlocking. If the lodi door handle is a Kwikset Smart key compatible lock then you may rekey the lock to the same key as the deadbolt.Thank you,Kwikset Support
