Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GrueneQueen 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 2.0 out of 5.0 by BigRick 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by B Red 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! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Homestead Creek 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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer 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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whistler Works well
It works as expected. I had some questions regarding cutting extra control keys and received exceptional service from Kwikset after contacting customer service.
Overall I'm very happy. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
