What about the knob lock cyl. with a master Key?

Today I've just seen the key control feature in the Home Depot online listings. Landlord or Service people can access the (Key Control} dead bolt lock cyl but what about the knob lock? OR do you not allow a knob lock? Someone said the Master Key is not included. Does Home Depot sell them?

How do you get copies of the original Master Key since it says Do Not Duplicate?

We need several copies made of the original master key that comes with the new lock for our maintenance and office staff. However, the master key says Do Not Duplicate. How do we have copies made it?
Asked by: mountainviewmgr648
You can get keys made, but you would need to purchase the Model # 40083 KW BLNK KCDB, the whole point of the DO NOT DUPLICATE is the that that particular deadbolt uses a master ket at the top (the DO NOT DUPLICATE key) and the bottom key is for the tenant. Then if and when the tenant move out, you insert the master in the top slot and re-key the bottom key for the next tenant. Check out the Youtube video, and I think you'll understand why making duplicates needs to be done with the right key blank.

Customer Reviews

816 Series Single Cylinder Polished Brass Key Control Deadbolt Featuring SmartKey is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Household locks I've purchased Kwikset locks for years. I'm especially thankful for the Kwikset Smartkey lock system. I've changed my home and daughters house locks using the Kwikset SmartKey technology. If by losing a house key you can quickly change the lock tumblers by rekeying and maintain the safety of your home without a locksmith or changing your house locks. If you need to perform maintenance on your locks, they are easy to remove, clean, inspect and lubricate; if needed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brass finish Very impressed that the brass finish on the deadbolt holds up so well [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for apartments This is a must have for apartment owners. Make sure you get the single cylinder instead of the double as many cities have housing codes that prevent you from installing 2x cyls in apartments for safety reasons. This is super easy to rekey and installation was just like any other deadbolt lock.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad product with plastic innards I put this on my back door, and had nothing but trouble. The PLASTIC cylinder inside broke on me twice. I had to hire out a locksmith who said it was made of plastic and not good. 9 months after he fixed it, I had the same problem again, requiring the replacement of the innards, again, plastic from China. A thief only has to hit it in the center hard to break it. I was burgled, and we found out it was because of this cheap lock. I have since replaced all of my locks with the Schlage keypad locks. I have put them on all of my doors on all of my houses. They are much more secure, and if you key all of them with the same basic code, you can have a second code for employees or tenants. If your tenant or whomever moves out, you can recode them easily. I would never recommend Kwickset ever. I have a B&B, and use one of these Schlage on the guests door. They have liked the Schlage so much, they have put them on their houses. My competitors found out I was using the Schlage locks and added them to their guest room doors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive deadbolt A little tricky to install for a novice. Be sure to measure the door you plan to put it on. I planned to install it on an older wood door and it was too narrow. Used it on another door instead. Smooth operation. Attractive finish which I hope holds up over time...I will update in 6 months or so.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ILove The Kwikset Brand but.... I have several rentals and they all have the standard KS Smart Key systems on them. I wanted to try this to make it easier so i dont have to carry so many keyes. But i was not so satisfied with this. Most of our locks have the Rosettes on them, this is just a hair to big for the rosettes as the lock shaft needs to be a bit longer to work better. And after i put it on, the lock was a little snug to turn and not as easy as the KS ones, when using the key that is. Also, you have to have a Control Key to use this, which did NOT come with the unit. Overall, i was not satisfied with this though i like the concept. I took it off and put the previous KS Smart key one back on. With the Rosettes of course. Sorry.
