  • Key Control Deadbolt in Satin Nickel is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for rentals. I bought the key control deadbolts for our rentals for 2 reasons. I wanted to have one master key to access any of our rentals. Having one key is so much more convenient that having to carry multiple keys. The hidden Smartkey top cylinder is perfect for this and really like that the master key is not a K1 key and cannot be easily copied. I also wanted to be able to change key codes without changing locks. The Smartkey lower cylinder is perfect for this. If a renter ever changes the key in the bottom cylinder, the door can still be opened with the master key in the top cylinder. Great time and money saver!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product Love this product! I have enough keys already! I'm glad you made a product that's so convenient for the homeowner to use (re-keying the lock) while giving me the confidence that my home and belongings are secure. Now I can use one key for all of my doors including my garage door.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use and tenant friendly. I am the maintenance supervisor for a large complex being built and we have decided to go with the 816 15 control deadbolt to save time and also for convenience for our tenants who used to lock themselves out of their apartment when we used the entry lock as well as a deadbolt. No more calls at all hours for lock outs. We recently remodeled one of our other complexes and changed over to the new 816 15 control locks and have gotten great response. Thanks Donald Desallier

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product for a landlord yet! I love this product! I am switching every apartment to the Key Control deadbolt when I re-rent them. It is so convenient to not have to worry about a bunch of different keys. I love that I can have my maintenance guy get in without a bunch of extra keys. It is also easy to change the key between tenants! I can re-key the lock for a contractor and change it back when he is done, no more worries about not getting a key back!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and fast re-keying. Easy to install. I have 20 rental properties and it was costing me $200 every time someone moved out to have the locks re-keyed or more if replaced. The double cylinder deadbolt with a master key allows me to do it in as little as 3 minutes per lock. If they do not have the original key the lock can be re-keyed with a few extra simple to use tools.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Landlord Lock I love this lock. I put it on each of my rentals. It has a hidden keyed lock you use for your landlord key and the tenants one you can see in the picture. You can also change the tenant key in seconds. No changing deadbolts anymore.
