  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time and Money Saver! I have owned several of these for about 4 years. I transitioned all of my rental to this system so I did not have to replace the locks each time there was a vacancy. Each renter gets the security of knowing no one else has a key to their unit and I save time and money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install. I needed a replacement lock and really did not want another key to keep up with. It is nice to be able to use one key for all my locks. Great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for property management We have been buying these deadbolts in quantities of 25 or more and slowly integrating them on all of our properties. These make life so much easier when there is a abrupt move out or needing to change locks ASAP, we can just change the key!!! LOVE Smartkey

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price and Product. I bought this lock last summer and I couldn't believe how easy it was to install. Once I had the lock installed, I used the SmartKey to convert it so my original keys still worked. Once I used the SMARTKEY the process was very easy.. Now, 6 months later, the lock is still operating Flawlessly. What a terrific product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Customer Service We bought dead bolts for all our exterior doors. They've been in use over 8 years. When we experienced a problem with 1 of the dead bolts, Kwiikset immediately sent us a replacement without any difficulty. It was much appreciated. We really like the keyed products and will select them again gladly. Thanks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from User Friendly - Thank God With a number of rental properties and an annual turn around on a few, it it the best combo for a quick fix to change the keys without completely removing the entire system. Ease of installation, just put screws in and set to a twist.

    is it true that this lock can be opened in 10 seconds with a 'force' tool that is inserted into the lock?

    Asked by: brocken223
    Hello brocken223, Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 816-15-SMT. Kwikset has been a leader in the door hardware industry for more than 60 years, earning a strong reputation of quality products. Kwikset is a leader in innovation and design; manufacturing products to meet the needs of our customers. All cylinders have “by-pass” techniques (i.e. lock picking, lock bumping, drilling, etc.) – SmartKey is the most secure residential product on the market. The “force” tool is only sold to licensed locksmiths and is manufactured with high strength heat treated tool grade steel; not typical materials that can be produced at home and even with this material the tool is prone to breaking during use. Kwikset has made improvements to components within the cylinder making it more resistant to this type of attack. We believe that the lock on the video had previously been compromised in some way. Our lengthy testing and experience with trying this tool on our SmartKey locks does not yield the same ease of opening as the video would have you believe. We do not believe it is a proper representation of our products. Sincerely, Kwikset Support Team
