LAKE FOREST, CALIF. (October 5, 2022) – Kwikset, the leading residential lock manufacturer, unveils its two newest products: SmartCode™ 260 Keypad Deadbolts and SmartCode™ 270 Touchpad Deadbolts.

TRL styles are available in Polished Brass, Satin Nickel and Venetian Bronze finishes, while CNT styles include Satin Nickel, Matte Black and Polished Chrome finishes.

The SmartCode™ 270 Touchpad Deadbolts introduce a new touchpad interface design that combines tactile feedback with sleek style, bright LED illumination, and easy code access along with 50 user codes and a new fast motorized deadbolt. TRL styles are available in Satin Nickel and Venetian Bronze finishes, while CNT styles include Satin Nickel and Matte Black.

“We pride ourselves on offering the highest quality keyless entry locks at the best value to our loyal customers,” said Hodgson. “Both the new keypad and touchpad deadbolts provide a seamless way for homeowners to experience the benefits of keyless entry without breaking the bank. Our product team is continually reevaluating our current line of products to ensure we are incorporating the latest technology for consumers.”

Both new Kwikset SmartCode™ deadbolts will be available starting in October 2022 at Kwikset’s retail partners. The SmartCode™ 260 products will retail for $99.99, and the SmartCode™ 270 products will retail for $119.99. For more information about Kwikset smart locks, please visit
