  • 980 Single Cylinder Deadbolt in Rustic Bronze is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Landlord's Best Friend I have been using Kwikset locks for some time now (15+ years). They have been making master-keyed locks for apartments (Titan was the early name for this line) and now the Smart Lock line works great for my single family rentals. These are good because there are often more locks & styles of locks on a house and I can set them all to work with one key, how convenient. By following the simple instructions I am able to "rekey" a lock in under 1 minute, with only a new set of keys, and no tools. If you do not rush the process, you will be pleased with the results and never have to dis-assemble a lock again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FEATURES Purchased another one of these and couldn't be happier. The re-key feature is awesome. I rent rooms out in my house so this enables me to change the locks in seconds when a tenant vacates. I own at least 32 of the different styles that can be re-keyed in seconds as i also have property rentals. I would recommend these to anyone in a heart beat. And they come with the bump guard too....

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea! Not so great function. I had purchased three of these smart key deadbolts a couple of years ago. Recently and over a period of a few months each one failed. I could not rekey them or even use the key that had been working for 2 years previously. I love the idea but there must be some quality issue if all three failed. Once these issues are resolved, I would give it 5 stars!!

    Our face plate surround for our deadbolt entry is very loose. How do we tighten it? It has a turn button on the opposite side which fell off recently.

    Asked by: Nancy42
    Hello Nancy42,Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model #980-15-SMT. To remove the interior plate, using a 1/16 hex wrench under the turn piece there is a small hole with a set screw. Carefully remove the set screw, turn piece and cover. Tighten the bolts and reverse the process to re-install the cover plate.Thank you,Kwikset Support Team

    I lost the keys to this and all my locks. I bought the "smart key re-key" cradle. While it does explain how to re-key once you have the tumbler out it: the directions never tell you how to get the cylinder free from the unit.

    Kwikset Deadbolt without visible attachment screws. I removed the set screw from the turn piece but the turn piece will not disengage from the deadbolt shaft. Prying the did not work. I do not want to break the deadbolt so what should I do next?

    Can I buy two single cylinder deadbolts keyed a like?

    Asked by: mjheight
    Hello mjheight,Thank you for your interest in the 980 Single Cylinder Deadbolt in Satin Nickel, model# 980 15 SMT. This product can be obtained in a set of four keyed alike units but not in only two keyed alike units. The model number for four keyed alike units is model# 980 15 SMT CP K4.However, because this product has SmartKey technology, you can purchase (2) #980 15 SMT and key them alike yourself to one key. Kwikset's SmartKey re-key technology provides you the flexibility to re-key your own locks quickly and easily without removing them from your door. If your house keys are Kwikset compatible (KW1 or KW10) keys then you can use the SmartKey technology to rekey them. SmartKey products can be re-keyed at the consumer level by following the re-keying instructions, but is not compatible with other brands.Thank you,Kwikset Support
